Here is yet another delicious Pumpkin recipe I wanted to share with y’all! Pumpkin Marshmallow Treats!
I can remember making rice krispy treats growing up, it was the first thing that my mom taught me to bake that I was ever successful at! We used rice krispie cereal, marshmallows and butter to make them, but now that I’m a mom I wanted to try and at least make the ingredients a little healthier. Then I had another thought…”it’s November, I could add some pumpkin to it too! So here’s my recipe for some yummy and fun looking fall flavored treats!
Recipe makes 10 pumpkin marshmallow treats:
In a large plastic bowl, microwave 10 oz of marshmallows, 2 tbsp pumpkin puree, and 3tbsp butter, until marshmallows expand to at least 4 times their size and appear to be very soft, remove from microwave, immediately pour in 4 cups whole wheat cheerios, a few drops orange food coloring(optional) and 1tbsp pumpkin pie spice and stir quickly together until mixed well.
While still pliable, form into pumpkin shaped balls and stick a pretzel stick into the top to give your pumpkin a stem.
And there you have it! My son loved making these with me, I hope you enjoy making them with YOUR kids!
