Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats

I was dreaming about these the other night.  The idea popped into my mind and wouldn't leave.  It swirled through my dreams until I made them.  It's just so hot here, I want to celebrate Fall, but can't imagine turning on the oven yet!

These did not disappoint!  It brought fall to my home without the oven!

Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats

1 pkg marshmallows
1/4 cup butter or margarine
6 cups rice Krispies
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
orange food coloring (optional)

Melt butter in a large plastic bowl in the microwave.  Mix in spices and a few drops of food coloring.  Add marshmallows.  Microwave and additional 1 1/2 minutes.  Stir until all are nice and smooth in color.  Add cereal.  Press into greased 9 x 13 pan.

Cut them up and yum!

mmm! Those look and sound delicious! What a fantastic idea...I wouldn't have been able to sleep after thinking that up either. :) I'd love for you to link this at my Fall Craft Challenge: this week's theme is Fall Snacks, so these would be a perfect fit.
