PUMPKIN PIE SPICE
3 Tblspns butter
1 /4 cup pumpkin puree (allow to set for 30 minutes on 2-3 paper towels to
absorb the excess water in the pumpkin)
1 bag (10 ounces) mini marshmallows
1 1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
6 cups 'Rice Krispies' cereal
4 ounces white chocolate, melted
orange food coloring
Spray (with cooking spray) a 9x9 inch baking pan. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the pumpkin and stir to combine. Fold in the marshmallows, Pumpkin Pie Spice, vanilla and salt. Remove the pot from the heat and allow the mixture to cool for 20 minutes. Once this mixture has cooled, add the cereal and stir until all pieces are coated with the marshmallows. Pour the cereal mixture into the prepared pan, pressing it into the pan and using your hands or the back of a large spoon to smooth the top. Let the Rice Krispie Treats set for 30 minutes in the pan. Cut the treats into bars. Mix a few drops of the food coloring into the melted white chocolate. Drizzle the colored chocolate over the top of each.
