Pumpkin Spice Treats -Fall Doodlings

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!

We followed the simple recipe on the bag for Pumpkin Spice Crispy Treats

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!

 Enjoy!!

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.

  1. So, since we are also in the midst of all things pumpkin, we have made a few observations… Beware of “how to make Pumpkin Spice Lattes at home” recipes, and either use Green Mnt Pumpkin Spice coffee or go buy a latte. Fresh Market Pumpkin Whoopie Pies are most likely the very best in the entire world! Emeril has a great pumpkin bread recipe. We are having trouble finding a pumpkin cheesecake recipe that doesn’t taste more like regular old pumpkin pie. We are loving pumpkin and butternut squash soup. And, interestingly, Martha Stewart actually uses butternut squash in lots of her pumpkin recipes instead of actual pumpkin – what’s up with that??

    Well, that pretty much wraps it up for now. Next on the agenda is to try to make a pumpkin roll cake! :)
