Pumpkin Rice Krispies Treats

It’s October, and that means I have everything pumpkins (and candy corn) on the brain! So it is no surprise that when Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® asked me to create a Halloween themed Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Treat for this sponsored post, it had to be a Pumpkin Rice Krispies® Treat! And really, does it get any cuter than this?

Rice Krispies Treat Pumpkin

My inspiration came from a picture I saw in a magazine last fall where they took two mini Bundt cakes and put them together with icing to create pumpkins. I can’t remember the magazine, but I haven’t forgotten that image. So when wanted to make Pumpkin Rice Krispies® Treats, I knew just how I would do it. 

And I am oh-so-pleased with how they turned out!

My daughters were so excited with my creation, I think I might make more next week for my daughter’s class birthday celebration. (Because I can assure you these won’t last that long!!!)

Pumpkin Rice Krispies® Treats

Like other Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Treats, these Pumpkin Rice Krispies® Treats start with just three basic ingredients (Rice Krispies®, marshmallows and butter). When you add decorative elements you get adorable Halloween Rice Krispies® Treats with the same original recipe. 


Rice Krispies Treats Ingredients
Makes nine Pumpkin Rice Krispies® Treats.


Melt butter in a pot over low heat. Add marshmallows. When marshmallows begin to melt, add orange gel food coloring. (It doesn’t take much to get vibrant color.) 

Rice Krispies Treats Marshmallows

Once marshmallows are fully melted, remove from heat and stir in Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® cereal. 

Spoon gooey Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Treats into a well-greased mini Bundt pan.

While Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Treats are still warm, take two treats and smoosh them together end to end. 

Orange Rice Krispies Treats

Decorate with green decorating gel for the pumpkin vines.

Halloween Rice Krispies Treats

Melt ends of chocolate candies by placing them on their end in a pan on low. When they start to melt, pick them up and place them directly onto the top of the pumpkins and smoosh into place to form stems. 

Rice Krispies Treats Halloween

The Pumpkin Rice Krispies® Treats are cute just like that, but if you want Halloween Rice Krispies® Treats you can turn them into Jack-o-lanterns. To do so use black decoration gel to create silly faces.
