Pumpkin Snack
Submitted by Lori
Have cookies, vanilla wafers, english muffins, bunt cakes (two on top of each other), or rice crispy treats decorated as pumpkins. To decorate use frosting, cream cheese, or use food coloring when you make it. To add a face to the pumpkin you could use licorice for a mouth, raisins or M&M's for eyes, and gumdrops for a stem.
