Who has even heard of Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats?

I was thinking up family friendly fall desserts today, but I wanted something different. Something fun that my kids will get a kick out of! But also a treat, something special to do in the fall with the kids helping.

3. Add the Rice Krispies cereal and stir to combine, then stir in the remaining marshmallows.

4. Cover a 9×13 pan with butter or cooking spray, then press the cereal mixture into the pan and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to set.

5. Take the cooled down Rice Krispie treats out of the fridge, and set them onto a cutting board and cut into squares.

6. In a microwave or double boiler, melt the white chocolate, stirring the whole time until smooth. Be careful while you do this, and don’t leave the chocolate or stop stirring, as it could overheat quickly.

7. Dip the top portion of each square into the chocolate. Alternatively, you could drizzle the chocolate on top with a spoon, instead of dipping. Add the sprinkles and decorate as you like!
