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
2 large mixing bowls
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.
