What You Need to Make Pumpkin Rice Krispies Treats

*Ingredient amounts are located in the recipe card at the end of this post.

Butter: I used salted butter, but unsalted butter will work just as well.

Mini Marshmallows: For these pumpkin spice treats, you will need a large 16 ounce bag of mini marshmallows. One cup of marshmallows will be removed from the bag and added in later.

Pumpkin Pie Spice: This is what gives these treats their delicious pumpkin flavor. You can find pumpkin spice in the baking aisle at your local grocery store or make your own using this recipe.

Vanilla Extract: A teaspoon of vanilla extract is added for extra flavor.

Rice Krispies Cereal: 6 cups of Rice Krispies cereal are needed for this recipe. I prefer the name brand cereal to the store brand.
