My nephew spent the weekend with me and we had lots of fun doing a few fall crafts! I am grateful to my friend Angela at Fab Find Foodie who told me that Wal-Mart was carrying a new Kraft Marshmallow product Pumpkin-Spiced Mallows! Wow! In my world, anything Pumpkin is a Winner!! So first, we had to go on a search for these delish treats. We hit up the closest Wal-Mart–NOOOOO! They were out. So we headed to the next Wal-Mart (good thing I live in a metropolitan area!). The next one had lots–so I bought 5 bags. You never know what recipe will need a sweet, pumpkin, marshmallow flavor!
What You Need
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 bag mallows
6 cups crisp rice cereal
Line a 13×9 pan with tin foil and spray with Pam.
Microwave butter in a large microwaveable bowl on High for 45 seconds or until melted. Add Marshmallows. Stir to coat with butter. Microwave 90 seconds or until melted. Stir well.
Add the cereal and mix well.
Press the mixture firmly into pan and let cool. (the hardest part, since it looked so yummy!) Store in an airtight container at room temperature–as if you will have any left over!!!
Remove treats from pan using the tin foil edges. Put on countertop and cut into squares or use a pumpkin shaped cookie cutter. OK, so I don’t have a pumpkin shaped coolie cutter, but I did have a drinking glass. I sprayed the lip of the glass with Pam and used it to cut out circles. Then I added a piece of the treat to the top to make the stem. We decorated with M&M’s because Garon likes them better than candy corn!
PS–I have heard that these sweet mallows are only available at Wal-Mart…and while you are there be on the look out for the M&M Candy corn white chocolate candies. Neither of my Wal-Marts had the M&Ms.
