Pumpkin Pie Spice Rice Krispie Treats

These pumpkin pie spice rice krispie treats are so sweet and delicious. Leave them plain or get the kids in on the fun by helping decorate.

I would like to let you all in on a little secret. These rice krispie treats are the BEST I have ever had. Oh yes. I’m making that statement. I know it sounds drastic but it is the truth. The addition of pumpkin pie spice adds tons of warm Fall flavor.

I thought it made the krispie treat taste like Apple Cinnamon Cheerios. Which is one of my favorite cereals…so you can see why I loved these 🙂

Since I’m a nanny I had the little girl I watch and her friend help me decorate the treats. I thought since Halloween was going to be here it would be fun to make these treats a little more festive. I did not necessarily find the frosting to taste the best (sorry Betty Crocker) but it was still fun 🙂

    i think everything tastes better with pumpkin spice. But I’m just an addict, don’t mind me. These sound awesome. Speaking of which someone should make pumpkin pie cheerios. Just saying.

    These sound fabulous Brandy – definitely not your usual rice krispie treats. Great Halloweeen idea.
