JACK O’ LANTERN RICE CRISPY TREATS
Rice crispy treats get transformed into jack o' lanterns in this adorable Halloween candy recipe! These rice crispy pumpkin balls also make great Halloween decorations or party centerpieces. Experiment with different facial expressions to give your pumpkins variety and
1. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Place the butter in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 30-45 seconds to melt it. Add the marshmallows, and microwave for an additional 90 seconds to melt them. The marshmallows
might not look melted at the end of this time, but once you stir them, they should liquefy.
3. Stir to blend the butter and marshmallows, then add the orange gelatin. Stir until the gelatin is well-incorporated: the mixture might look grainy at this point, but it will be okay once the cereal is added..
4. Add the crispy rice cereal and stir until it is thoroughly coated and there are no dry patches.
5. Spray your hands with nonstick cooking spray, and scoop up a handful of the cereal mixture. Press it firmly between your hands, forming a ball shape. Make sure that the balls are compact; loosely formed balls easily fall apart. If the balls don't form at first, allow the mixture to sit for another minute and cool, this seems to help
them hold together.
6. Place the rice crispy balls on the prepared baking sheet and allow them to firm up at room temperature. Once the rice crispy balls are set, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. Place the chocolate in a Ziploc bag and cut off a very small triangle from one of the corners.
7. Using this makeshift decorating bag, draw jack o' lantern faces on the orange balls. While the chocolate sets, cut green your green gummies into thin stalks, and attach them with a small amount of chocolate to the top of the pumpkins.
8. Once the chocolate is dry, the pumpkins can be served or stored. Keep the pumpkin rice crispy treats in an airtight container in a cool, dry room.

Candlelight Christmas Evenings take place Nov. 9 through
Biltmore's elaborate Christmas celebration is modeled after the first time Biltmore's founder, George Vanderbilt, hosted friends and family in his new home, Biltmore House on Christmas Eve 1895. A 35-foot tall Fraser fir presides over the holiday season in the Banquet Hall and guests are treated to a Victorian era-inspired display of holiday finery. This year, guests will see 56 trees throughout Biltmore House, each intricately designed and hand-decorated by members of Biltmore's
floral team. Miles of fresh garland and wreaths create a yuletide scent
throughout the House, with around 1,000 red and white poinsettias in the Winter Garden and other areas.
Candlelight Christmas Evenings
Biltmore House takes on an enchanting atmosphere during Candlelight Christmas Evenings, creating a unique holiday experience. Choirs and musical ensembles perform Christmas music throughout the house while guests wander among the decorated rooms. The front lawn glows with a 55-foot tall Norway spruce, lit by 45,000-plus tiny
white lights, and enhanced by the glow of more than 300 hand-lit luminaries.
