Easy Pumpkin Pie Rice Krispies Treats

Making Pumpkin Pie Spice Rice Krispie Treats is my favorite way to serve a slice without any fuss because I forgo the dough!

Full of fall flavor and plenty of crunch, this twist on classic Rice Krispies treats recipe creates the classic soft and chewy treat but presses it into a 9 inch round cake pan as if pretending to be a pie!

The simple pie crust is made by coating the rice cereal in a buttery marshmallow mixture, then molding it along the inside of a circular pan and leaving the middle empty for filling.

The filling contains orange food coloring plus pumpkin pie spice, and is set in the center of the outer Krispie treat crust – it’s the fastest way to prepare fall’s most famous dessert and cuts the cook time from multiple hours to mere minutes.

How to Make Pumpkin Pie Rice Krispie Treats

  1. Create The Crust: Pour the marshmallows into the melted butter and mix until melted. Stir in maple extract, remove from heat, and stir in Rice Krispies until coated.
  2. Pour Crust In The Pan: Pour the “crust” in the pan and press the mixture along the perimeter.
    Pro Tip: The crust should be about an inch thick. Make sure to leave the middle of the pan empty for the “filling”.
  3. Prepare The Pie Filling: Pour the marshmallows into the melted butter and mix until melted. Stir in pumpkin pie spice and yellow and red food coloring.
  4. Pour The Filling In The Pan: Pour the pie filling into the center of the crust, pressing down until flat.
    Pro Tip: Make sure to leave the one inch crust around the outside.
  5. Slice and Serve: Allow the pie to set for 15 minutes, then cut into 8 pieces. Enjoy!

Tip From Our Recipe Developer

  • Make sure to use low heat and not turn it past medium! If marshmallows are heated too quickly, the sugar in the marshmallows will turn into candy which means when they cool, they will be hard.
  • When pressing the Rice Krispie mixture into the cake pan, spray a piece of parchment paper with cooking spray and press down with the parchment paper. This prevents the mixture from sticking to your hands or a spatula.
  • You can use orange food coloring instead of red and yellow.
  • When you combine the Rice Krispies and marshmallow mixture, don’t overmix it. You want to gently fold the cereal into the mixture and then stop once coated.

Storage

  • To Store: Store your pie in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. Garnish just before serving.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can Make Sure My Rice Krispie Treats Are Soft?

For soft Rice Krispie Treats, make sure to keep the stovetop temperature low! When stirring your marshmallows, you must remove them from the heat as soon as they are all melted. Overheating the marshmallows will cause them to “seize up” and give you rock-hard Rice Krispie treats when they cool.

How Many Servings Does This Recipe Make?

This recipe can be cut into 8 pieces. Slice it just like you would for a pie.

How Can I prevent The Rice Krispie Treats From Sticking To My Hands?

A super easy trick to keep gooey Rice Krispie treats from sticking to your hands is to spray a piece of parchment paper with non-stick spray and use it to press your Rice Krispie treats into the pan. You can also grease your hands with some butter before touching the Rice Krispie and marshmallow mixture.
