Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats Recipe

Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats take the deliciousness of the traditional treats and add in pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice for fall flavor!

Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats

Not only do these pumpkin flavored treats satisfy all your fall cravings, but they’re so quick and easy to make. It’s just original recipe you find on the back of the box with spices you probably already have in your pantry thrown in.

Fall flavored spices like cinnamon, ginger and cloves make the treats scream autumn!

I do have one important tip to share before you get started. Since the recipe calls for real pumpkin to be combined with the melted marshmallow, it makes the mixture more dense than the original recipe. 

Be sure to let the pumpkin and marshmallow mixture cool down as the recipe instructs before stirring in the rice krispies. Otherwise your treats will become soggy.

My family loves these treats. And I mean, who can blame them? Seriously, who can say no to all that ooey gooey marshmallowy goodness or delicious pumpkin flavor that screams “FALL IS HERE!”?

Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie treats are also the perfect for holiday get togethers, classroom celebrations and even tailgate parties.

This recipe calls for canned pumpkin, but if you want to start with a fresh pumpkin, you can use this recipe to make your own pumpkin puree in the Instant Pot.

Combine cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt in a small bowl and set aside.

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
