Pumpkin Rice Krispies Treat

Category: Grubbecipes

Halloween always makes a perfect excuse for a crazy mom like me to find an excuse to tinker in the kitchen and whip up treats while using, “the school asked for it” as a legit excuse.

I tried making these last year, but because I tried to modify the recipe, it turned out to be rock, cement hard that those rice krispies didn’t crack when I slammed them on the wall! So I learnt my lesson, that with baking, one should not try to mess with the recipe too much and so, I (actually Silver Bullet) followed the recipe to a T. Well, almost. We varied it a little from the original recipe due to lack of ingredients available.

These turned out fabulous and kids love ’em.
