What's better than Rice Cereal Treats? Pumpkin Rice Cereal Treats! If you love pumpkin, you are going to go gaga over these little sweet treats. There is nothing more cozy to make in the Fall than a batch of these good old fashioned rice cereal treats with a twist. It's probably the first dessert we made by ourselves as kids and we hope to one day teach our children how to make them. They are easy and fun to make. Enjoy!
3 tablespoons of butter
1 bag of mini marshmallows (10oz)
1/4 cup of pumpkin puree
1 1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
6 cups of rice cereal
6 oz. of butterscotch morsels
2 teaspoons of vegetable shortening
Cinnamon for decor
Measuring cups and spoons
Square cake pan
Spray the cake pan with cooking spray and set aside.
Melt the 3 tablespoons of butter in the pot over low heat. Once melted, add the marshmallows and stir until melted. Next, add the pumpkin puree and the pumpkin pie spice. Mix until incorporated. Remove from the heat and add the rice cereal into the mixture. Softly stir until the cereal is fully coated and pour into the cake pan and allow to cool.
Next, cut the treats into squares and place on a cooling rack. Meanwhile, melt the butterscotch morsels in a double broiler. Add two teaspoons of vegetable shortening to thin it out. Drizzle on the treats and allow to harden.
