Pumpkin Spice Rice Crispy Treats

by Courtney on September 20, 2012

Juuuuust when you thought my pumpkin obsession couldn’t get any worse…


This happened.


I ended up walking past these yesterday while in good ‘ol Walmart and decided that I could not let them go untouched. I mean, they were only $1.25…they were practically begging to be thrown into my cart.

This whole summer, I’ve really been all about rice crispy treats. Anytime we’ve been out at a party and they’re there, I can’t get enough of ‘em (my friend, Andrea, makes some great ones!). Yet, I never end up making them myself.

That needed to be changed.


So this afternoon, I got my pumpkin marshmallows all cooked up.


And go to work on making some delicious pumpkin spice rice crispy treats.


Into the pan they went…


And then, just because a little extra chocolate is never a bad thing…


I came across this milk chocolate candy bar in the back of my fridge (leftover from my fun package in June) and decided I’d put it to use.


Knowing that the hubby can get weird about “extras” added into baked goods, I made sure to keep some nice and plain.


Then again, they are pumpkin, so something tells me he may not be in to these as much as I am.

Hey…ohh weeeelllll. Winking smile

pumpkin spice rice crispy treats



I think these would be mighty fun and festive to celebrate the beginning of fall this coming Saturday, don’t you? Winking smile

I have never seen these before!! Awesome! Did they taste super pumpkin-y or did they add a slight hint on flavor?

9 Amanda @ .running with spoons. September 20, 2012 at 3:25 pm

Well you just convinced me to brave the crazy crowds of Walmart to go in search of these marshmallows. As simple as they are, Rice Krispie treats are probably one of my favorite desserts, and the combination of pumpkin and chocolate sounds to die for.

OMG must make these immediately. I might try with just regular marshmallows and add spices… we’ll see how they turn out!

With the chocolate sprinkled on top, it’s like Halloween in a pan! Mix up favorite candy bars (Milky Way, Reese’s, etc) and you can call them “Trick Or Treat Crispies.” :-)

Ohmygoshhhh….really?! I’m trying to get into the fall mood despite the 90 degree heat down here, and these little babies just might help me out! The marshmallows though, seriously? Since when have flavored marshmallows been a thing? Maybe I’m just way outta the loop!


30 Nicole September 20, 2012 at 6:33 pm

So funny…my kids were snacking on pumpkin s’mores made with these marshmallows when I opened up the blog. Just another twist on the pumpkin/chocolate combo;) now they’re begging me to make the rice krispie treats for tomorrow. Someday I’ll hit my fill of pumpkin…maybe:)

So I’m not the biggest fan of marshmallows and rice krispie treats, but these have me really intrigued cuz I loooove anything with pumpkin~very clever recipe indeed. :D How weird! It must be a man-thing because my husband doesn’t like choc chips, etc. in his pancakes. Only stuff like bananas, blueberries, but not the more “special” additions. haha!

47 Melanie September 21, 2012 at 11:28 pm

Yes! I’ve maybe got one session in since your last Challenge and really need to get my butt back in gear with it. I’d be in. Let me know if I can do anything to help!

Do you know what your friend Andrea does to her Rice Krispie Treats to make them so fantastic? My aunt makes a mean Krispie Treat, but I have a feeling she adds extra butter or something to make them super delicious….
What’s Andrea’s secret?


52 Courtney September 21, 2012 at 11:42 am

Haha, I have no idea :)


53 Shayla September 21, 2012 at 12:51 pm

Rice crispy treats have been sounding soooo good to me too and I absolutely have to make these!! I love your baked goodie recipes so very much and can’t wait to try these…they look delish….and I hope you snuck in some of those mallows…it’d be hard not to eat the whole bag! ;)
