Soft and crunchy pumpkin Rice Krispies treats with a touch of cinnamon-sugar on top. An easy, no-bake fall snack!
Ingredients
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 (8 ounce) bag pumpkin spice marshmallows*
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 5 cups Rice Krispies (or any kind of crispy rice cereal)
  • cinnamon-sugar mixture for sprinkling on top (optional)
  • Halloween sprinkles (optional)
Instructions
  1. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and pumpkin pie spice and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add Rice Krispies cereal and stir until well-coated.
  3. Using a spatula sprayed with non-stick spray, gently press mixture into baking pan. Sprinkle a mixture of cinnamon-sugar on top (a mixture of 3 parts sugar to 1 part cinnamon), along with sprinkles (both steps optional). Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares or into desired shapes with a cookie cutter. Store treats in an airtight container up to one week.
Notes
*If you can't find pumpkin spice marshmallows, you may use a 10 ounce bag of mini-marshmallows with an extra teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice.
