Pumpkin Spice Marshmallow Rice Krispy Treats

Have you noticed, all things "pumpkin" are hot right now.  Who doesn't love {and wait all year} on a good Pumpkin Spice Latte?  Have you seen all of the yummy seasonal creamers in the grocery store?  I can recommend International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer {but that's another post}.   If you visit Pinterest, you will see everything from creative, decorative pumpkins to some of the yummiest sounding recipes on the planet.  Yes, Pumpkin is hot.

While grocery shopping over the weekend, I stumbled across these:

Yes!  Thank you, Kraft for creating this yummy treat!  They are good straight out of the bag.  If you're a snacker, you might want to grab an extra bag to munch on while you make the real deal.   When I saw these in the store, I remembered seeing a pin on Pinterest about pumpkin marshmallow treats.  hmmmmm...the wheels started turning.  It was convenient that Kraft even printed their recipe right on the bag.  ;)

So, I got a box of Rice Krispies & whipped up a batch.  These are made exactly the same way that regular rice krispy treats are made.  All of the pumpkin spice is in the marshmallows.  Let's just say they are a GOOD THING!

Look!  They are a cute little pumpkin shape & color.  And, they melted easily!

I had to snap this picture quickly.  They didn't last very long.  ;)

What pumpkin goodness have you discovered lately?
