Pumpkin Treats Even I’m guilty of using pumpkin spice during the height of the “everything has pumpkin spice!” craze. These rice krispie treats are 100% worth it!

Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats


  • 3 TBSP unsalted butter
  • 4-5 cups regular white marshmallows
  • 5-6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin or 1/8 cup fresh pumpkin


  • In a large pan, melt the butter over medium low heat
  • Add your marshmallows and let them melt (I recommend 5 cups if you’re using 6 cups Rice Krispies)
  • Add the pumpkin spice and pumpkin to the mix, blend well
  • Add your Rice Krispies to the marshmallow mix; start with 5 cups and increase to 6 if you determine it needs more. If transferring to a pot for easier stirring (recommended), add about half of the cereal, transfer, add the rest, then mix well.
  • Pour the mixture into a 9×13 pan (grease it with butter first if it’s metal; glass should be okay ungreased)
  • Flatten mix using wax or parchment paper
  • Let cool, cut with butter knife, and enjoy your treats
