Pumpkin Spiced Rice Krispy Treats


I whipped up a new easy fall treat this afternoon for my kiddos and wow was it good! I am officially in love with this new recipe! I went grocery shopping this weekend and I discovered pumpkin spiced marshmallows on the baking aisle. I planned to make Rice Krispy treats this weekend for a snack. So of course I had the great idea of trading out my normal marshmallows to pumpkin spiced! I am currently celebrating all things pumpkin around my house, so this was a brilliant idea in my world! I added a few ingredients then I tasted and added ingredients as I made these treats. I added a special "spiced up kick" by pouring melted Hershey Pumpkin Spiced Kisses as a final topping to my Rice Krispy treats. So without further ado, here's my new fall treat! 

Pumpkin Rice Krispy Treats Recipe

3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1 (8 ounce) bag pumpkin spice marshmallows
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon salt
7 cups crispy rice cereal
4 oz white vanilla bark
24 pumpkin spiced Hershey kisses 


Generously spray a 9x13 baking pan with non-stick spray. Set pan aside.

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add the vanilla bark and continue to cook until it is warmed through. 

Fold marshmallows, stirring frequently until almost completely melted. Stir in vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt, and remove from heat.

Add marshmallow mixture to the cereal and stir until combined.

Pour mixture into prepared baking pan and gently spread out evenly. I sprayed the back of a large spatula with non-stick spray and gently pressed the mixture without packing it down. 

In microwave melt 24 Hershey kisses in 10 second increments till mixture is melted. 

Pour over rice Krispy treats. Allow to set for about 30 minutes before cutting into squares.

Store in an airtight container up to one week.  You could even cut these treats into pumpkin shapes or decorate with regular candy corns.  Enjoy!
