This Pumpkin Spice “Krispie Pie” is just the beginning in a series of Thanksgiving treat ideas for kids and adults alike. Rice Krispies are so reliable, and when mixed with the right amount of sweet ingredients and a dash of fall, these babies become sublime. Before your eyes roll at another “pumpkin” flavored treat – I’ve seen everything from bagels to beer this time of year – pumpkin spice in this Rice Krispie Pie recipe isn’t the star of the show. There’s a balancing act between marshmallows, white chocolate, and pumpkin spice. To make it even more unique, we’re making these treats into a pie shape – let’s be real here. Square Rice Krispie treats? So 1990s.
THE RICE KRISPIE PIE CRUST AND ITS YUMMY FILLING
This recipe will be split into two batches of the Rice Krispie treat mixture: one for the “crust” and one for the “filling.”
CRUST: First, you’re going to whip up a batch of your go-to Rice Krispie Original recipe. Add the butter to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, add the marshmallows, stirring constantly, until the marshmallows are melted. I always add a dash of vanilla to enhance the flavor, and then stir in the Rice Krispies cereal. Line the 8-inch round pan with plastic wrap and leave enough so that you can easily pull up the pie from the tin after it has set. You’ll thank yourself later.
