Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats

Enjoy the flavor of pumpkin with a classic Rice Krispie Treat! This Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats Recipe is a keeper.

I am addicted to Pumpkin this time of year. I could probably eat an entire pumpkin pie on my own, although I am not going to try.  I have passed my love of pumpkin onto the sweetest, cutest, most handsome little guy I know.  My son loves pumpkin, but he is gluten free.  So we have channeled his love of pumpkin into many things: pumpkin pudding, GF Pumpkin Cookies, GF Pumpkin Muffins, and more.  You name it and I have probably tried it.

Today I wanted to surprise my little buddies with a new special treat when they came home. Monday’s can be rough. We needed a little extra smile. So I made a batch of these Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats. They are just as amazing as I imagined. Maybe better.  They are very easy to make and the perfect fall snack, or even addition to the kids table at Thanksgiving.

Give these yummy treats a whirl.
