Pumpkin spice and Rice Krispies are a great combination! Nothing says the arrival of the Fall and Halloween better than the treats made out of these two. This Pumpkin Spice and Rice Krispie Treats was an idea that came to mind recently since I had a box or two of Rice Krispies in the pantry.
Quite easy to make if you have few pumpkins lying around. In this season, it is not really hard to find them, right?
Take a look below and see how you can make a batch of your own Pumpkin Spice and Rice Krispie treats!
Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats
4 cups marshmallows
6 cups puffed rice cereal
1 Tablespoon butter
2 Tablespoons pumpkin puree
2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
Optional Cream Cheese Glaze
2 Tablespoons butter, room temperature
1 Tablespoon cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
+ milk, optionally, to thin out
1. Melt the marshmallows and butter over the stove or in the microwave in 30 second bursts. Stir well in between heats to prevent scorching.
2. Once the marshmallows are melted and well stirred, add in the pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice, and then gently stir in the rice cereal, coating completely but being careful not to crush the cereal.
3. Spoon the mixture into a lined or buttered baking pan, and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.
4. Just before serving, mix your cream cheese glaze together. You can drizzle this onto your pumpkin spice rice krispie treats with a spoon or a piping bag if you want more precision.
Optional: Sprinkle with extra pumpkin spice or cinnamon.
There you have it. Yummy Pumpkin Spice and Rice Krispie treats is ready!
Great crowd pleaser on Halloween night, agree? 🙂 Happy Halloween!
