Pumpkin Pie Rice Krispies

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching! It is fun to have a cute thanksgiving dessert meant just for kids. What do kids love more than Rice Krispies Treats? To make them more thanksgiving themed, why not make them appear to be a pumpkin pie? What a fun, easy and creative dessert to bring for the kids (and maybe adults too).

Pumpkin Pie Rice Krispie Treats


  • 3 TBL unsalted butter

  • 6 C Rice Krispies cereal

  • 4 C mini marshmallows

  • orange food coloring

  • Non stick cooking spray


  • Sauce Pan

  • Silicone spatulas

  • 2 large mixing bowls

  • Pie Dish


  • Divide the cereal into 2 bowls- one with 4 cups and one with 2 cups.

  • Melt the butter in the saucepan and stir int he marshmallows until melted.

  • Add about 20% of the melted marshmallow into the bowl with 2 cuts of cereal in it, and mix in.

  • Spray the pie pan and add the non colored marshmallow Rice Krispie mix. Press in and form to the pie dish making sure it is evenly dispersed so there is a cavity in the middle to add the orange mixture.

  • Add the orange food coloring to the remaining marshmallow mixture.  Then combine the marshmallow mixture with the Rice Krispies in the remaining bowl.

  • Add the now orange Rice Krispies into the pie dish and spread out evenly. Let rest for a few hours to firm up.
