Looking for a festive item to make for Halloween but don't love elaborate or candy filled treats? If you answered yes to any of this, then these are for you!
Pumpkin Rice Kripsie treats are made with only a little bit of pumpkin puree and are very lightly flavored with pumpkin in the final product which for my family is a big win because they are all purists when it comes to rice krispie treats 🙂 If you do like extra flavor you can add pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon to give it a big punch of Fall flavor.
Either way you do it, it will certainly be a big hit at your next Halloween gathering!
