Caramel Pumpkin Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats

Caramel Pumpkin Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats

There’s nothing that makes you want to be a kid again quite like being a senior in college. And if you’re in my position right now, though I can’t help you return to a time of no worries or responsibilities, I can tell you how to make a version of an all-time favorite childhood snack that is more grown up, but in a good way. So take a break from panicking about your future, and use the BEST fall ingredient (pumpkin, of course) to make a delicious treat that combines the goodness of classic rice krispie treats with chocolate, caramel, and pumpkin! What’s not to love about that?


4 tbsp (1/2 stick) butter
½ of a 15 oz can of pumpkin
½ tsp vanilla
½ cup plus 2 tbsp flour
¼ cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp granulated sugar
½ cup chocolate chips
Pinch of salt

Other ingredients:

1 ½ cups mini marshmallows
½ cup caramel candies

2 cups Rice Krispies
2 cups Cocoa Krispies


1. Melt butter, pumpkin, vanilla, flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, chocolate chips and salt together in a saucepan over medium heat until chocolate chips are melted and well combined with other ingredients.

2. Pour the marshmallows caramels into the saucepan and stir mixture until caramels and marshmallows are fully melted and well mixed in with other ingredients. Remove saucepan from heat.

3. Pour mixture over a bowl of the mixed Rice Krispies and Cocoa Krispies, and mix together.

4. Spread into a coated 8 or 9 inch square pan.

5. Let cool for about half an hour.


Kick back, relax, and when in doubt, bake!
