Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats

Our Friday night fun consisted of Mommy going grocery shopping, coming home and trying to find a place to put everything, then making a treat.  The request was Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats.  They turned out really good.  I found the Pumpkin Spice chips at Target.  That's the only place I found them this year, but then, I didn't look super hard either.  The original Rice Krispie Recipe was posted here, but I changed it just a tad. 

Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats

5 Tbl. butter
10 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispie cereal
A pinch of salt
1 cup Nestle Pumpkin Spice chips


Melt butter in a large pan. Add 8 1/2 cups of mini marshmallows and a pinch of salt, and stir constantly until melted.  Remove from heat, and add Rice Krispie cereal.  Stir until well combined, then add additional 1 1/2 cups of mini marshmallows and Pumpkin Spice chips while still hot.  Press into bottom of greased 9x13 baking dish (or 8x8 if you like them really thick).  Let cool, then ENJOY!

(Note: These have a strong pumpkin taste.  If you want it to be a little more subtle, you can reduce it to 1/2-3/4 cup of the Pumpkin Spice chips.)
