Delicious, soft, small, and chewy are a few words that have been used to describe pumpkin spice Rice Krispie Treats. These treats are especially easy for simple snacks, on the go, and for kids.

To make these tasty treats, the ingredients are butter, marshmallows, crispy rice cereal, vanilla extract, pumpkin puree, and spices. The butter is melted while pumpkin puree is added to it. Then, marshmallows are folded into the mixture as well. Once everything is well incorporated, the vanilla extract, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg are added into the mixture. Then, it is added into a well greased pan and flattened. After some time of cooling, the treats are ready. These treats, although normally cut into small squares, can be made into any preferred shape. Due to the marshmallows throughout the treat, it allows the treat to be abnormally flexible compared to others.

These treats can also be customizable. Several different things can be added to top the sweet fall treats. Things from regular sprinkles to caramel drizzle are frequently used. However, these treats are just as amazing without any toppings as they are with toppings. These treats are not just used for fall, but they are used for many different seasons and holidays. They are extremely easy to be customized to any and every occasion. However for more information for pumpkin spice flavored treats, The Comfort of Cooking has a great and easy recipe to follow. Although a good more simple and customizable recipe is available on Rice Krispies.
