If there was an official flavor of fall we are willing to bet, Pumpkin would be it. Pumpkin spice to be exact. Is there really anything more magical then then the warm fuzzy feelings we get just hearing the words pumpkin spice? No matter what we seem to use the flavor in it just works. Cupcakes, muffins, cakes, pies, and of course our favorite – lattes. So why not mix it into one of our favorite easy go to treats, Rice Krispies! Yep, easy and sprinkle covered! You guys are gonna love this fall treat – Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispies.
If you don’t trust us, ask the half eaten “test” batch sitting here. Somehow one test square turned into two and two turned into half a pan. Hey we had to make sure it was a great recipe before sharing of course! Super easy, super yummy, and super covered in one of our favorite fall sprinkle mixes, Peach Tea! We really love this mix as it has two shades of orange and two shades of brown sticking to those traditional fall colors but with variety. It really made the perfect finishing touch for our Rice Kripsies treats. Going from pumpkin spice to PUMPKIN SPICE!! Sprinkles are basically the !! of dessert. Gotta have them if you want to make a great point, or that’s how we see it anyway,
- 3 Tbs butter
- 10oz marshmallows
- 1 Tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- orange food coloring (optional)
- 6 cups Rice Krispie cereal
- 1/4 cup sprinkle mix – We used our Peach Tea sprinkle mix.
Start by greasing a 9X13 cookie sheet and large mixing bowl with butter. Then melt the butter and marshmallow together on low heat stirring frequently. Once melted add in the pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and just a couple drops of orange food coloring. Mix together well. Pour over Rice Krispie cereal in the greased mixing bowl until full combined.
Once everything is nice and mixed, press into the greased baking sheet. Greased hands help here! Then sprinkle the top with Peach Tea fall sprinkles, giving them a slight press into the treat. Let cool, cut and serve! Our Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispies treats will be your new go-to fall treat!
