Easy Cornflake Pumpkins

These easy cornflake pumpkins are not only adorable but they are super easy and delicious too! Yay! It is officially September, which in my book means all things pumpkin! My three year old isn’t crazy about the actual pumpkin flavor (not that I won’t keep trying!) but I wanted to make a festive treat that we could all enjoy making and eating together.  I first thought of these cute cornflake pumpkins because of the Easy Cornflake Wreath’s that Lauren shared on the blog last year for Christmas, because what kid doesn’t love those?  P.S. If you aren’t following Lauren’s blog yet, do yourself the favor, you won’t regret it! Anyway, I had a great time creating these little pumpkins in the kitchen with my two little helpers! It’s a great treat to make with kids, because it is quick, easy and of course, delicious.

These easy cornflake pumpkins are not only adorable but they are super easy and delicious too! Don’t get caught up in making perfect pumpkin shapes. This mixture is super sticky and the more you touch it the harder it is to work with! Just drop a large spoonful in place, and I promise they will look pumpkin enough!

These easy cornflake pumpkins are not only adorable but they are super easy and delicious too! My kids favorite part was sticking in the stems (and sneaking them of course!) cute little hooligans! Also, may I just add, these taste WAYYY better than rice crispy treats in my opinion. We always make ours with corn flakes around these parts.. mmmm hmmm!
