Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats

Chewy, delicious Pumpkin Spice Krispie Treats. Easy to make and perfect for any fall party!
I spent 4 days searching for the main ingredient in these krispie treats. 

Jello Pumpkin Spice Pudding mix. 

I have a simple love of putting pudding mix into my Rice Krispie treats. Gives them a whole new flavor, and keeps them moist!

I found the pudding mix at Walmart. And I stocked up! I have more ideas on how to use it, besides making pudding of course! So if and when you find it, buy extra boxes. Just in case!
These little treats went fast around here. I topped them with some melted white chocolate and sprinkles. Super quick to make, and easy too! 

And you all should know by now how much I enjoy Krispie Treats…

Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats

Jell-O pumpkin spice pudding mix adds a fun fall twist to a classic snack!


  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 10 oz bag marshmallows
  • 1 box (3.4oz) pumpkin spice instant pudding mix
  • 5 cup rice krispies cereal
  • 1 cup white chocolate, melted
  • sprinkles


  1. Line a 9inch square baking pan with foil. Grease the foil with butter (I use the butter wrapper to grease the foil dish). Set aside.
  2. In large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add in marshmallows and stir constantly until melted (lower heat to low-medium). Remove from heat and quickly stir in pudding mix. Fold in cereal.
  3. Pour mixture into buttered foil pan. Press treats into pan (but not too hard, that will dry them out).
  4. Spread melted white chocolate over top of treats and sprinkle immediately with sprinkles. Allow to set about 1 hour. Cut and serve. ENJOY.

Thank you for this delicious recipe! I’m heading to Walmart in the next day or two, to see if they carry that pudding flavor here in Canada. If they do, this will make an easy, delicious treat for our community connect time during churchy this Sunday!

pretty darn awesome!! Here from Trick or Treat Tuesday


Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie October 2, 2012 at 1:14 pm

Yum! Love how you decorated them too


Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust October 2, 2012 at 1:30 pm

I need to look for that! These look so good. And, you need to give me a course in food styling. I’d totally pay you in sugar. :)


Aimee October 2, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Payments in sugar. I love it!!! But I’m no help…I’m a lost cause. Food styling is the worst part of blogging to me…but thanks for the kind words!


Anita at Hungry Couple October 2, 2012 at 1:53 pm

I’ve never had a Rice Krispie treat anything like this but I love it. :)


Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel October 2, 2012 at 1:59 pm

I need to get my hands on that pudding! I had no idea to ever put pudding mix into krispy squares, but if they’ll make them taste and look like these, I’m now a firm believer in it!


Rachel @ Baked by Rachel October 2, 2012 at 2:15 pm

I was just thinking about this exact kind of recipe last night! So glad you whipped it up :)


Averie @ Averie Cooks October 2, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Oh these sound so good! I love RKTreats in any way shape or form and with pumpkin pudding and the white choc frosting, even better!


Winnie October 2, 2012 at 5:20 pm

These look wonderful :) Colorful and very tempting treats


Anonymous October 2, 2012 at 6:01 pm

my sister just made these but a little simpler. She used the pumkin marshmallows(just as hard to find) instead of regular and made the treats like normal. No pudding. It was hard to stop eating them!!


sally @ sallys baking addiction October 2, 2012 at 6:44 pm

Aimee, I just made pumpkin rice krispie treats last night! no pudding mix, but pumpkin puree instead! We are both in the pumpkin state of mind! I love RKTs – to easy and versatile! I love your frosted and sprinkle topping :) Great addition!


Aimee October 2, 2012 at 8:51 pm

Thanks Sally! I thought about using the pumpkin puree…but I’ve had such luck using pudding mix that I went that route! Can’t wait to see your version!


Julie @ Table for Two October 3, 2012 at 12:20 am

these came out so perfect! i love how perfect the lines of the squares are, what a great idea to use pumpkin spice pudding in these too :)


Shiloh Barkley October 3, 2012 at 2:24 am

love paper and twine wrapped around the goods.



Jocelyn October 3, 2012 at 2:25 am

Yay for yummy pumpkin flavored rice krispies! I almost made mine with pudding the other day, but opted for the marshmallows instead. You are going to crack up when I post mine because they look so similar. Well, except for the fact that yours are wrapped up way cuter:-) Love the paper and twine!!!


Michelle C {Krumble Cakes and Sweets} October 3, 2012 at 3:48 am

Ive never made Rice Krispie Treats using pudding mix, sounds so good!


Nancy @ CouponClippingCook October 3, 2012 at 6:37 am

They look so pretty! I’ve never seen pumpkin spice pudding mix in Australia (or pumpkin spice for that matter!) – I will have to keep my eyes open for it in some of the specialty stores that stock US foods. Thanks for the recipe. :)

I hope you find the pudding mix!

Aimee, I’m making this recipe today!! No Walmart’s in DT Chicago, but I’m going to check out every grocery store in a 5 mile radius to find pumpkin spice pudding. Any good substitutes in case I can’t find it?? Thanks! Meghan from The Tasty Fork


Capturing Joy with Kristen Duke Photography October 15, 2012 at 3:57 am

Pudding makes everything better! What an adorable presentation, I love a rice krispie treat, I’m sure I’d love it with pumpkin spice pudding mix in it!


Pretend Chef October 26, 2012 at 8:24 pm

I love your presentation. I need to duplicate it to take for my coworkers. I think they would love these.


Mary W. December 6, 2012 at 11:55 am

I had the problem of not buying enough of the pumpkin spice pudding last year. Learned my lesson & stocked up this year. Now I’m on a qhest to find the gingerbread pudding. Sounds awesome. Thanks for sharing with us.
(If you are in the Northeast or New England I found the pudding at Hannnaford as

Pumpkin spice anything is a favorite. Halloween is the best time of the year in my opinion. Pinning to make in a few months!

aimee @ shugarysweets October 27, 2013 at 9:27 am

I have no idea.


Hillary August 24, 2014 at 4:30 pm

Yum! I’m going to try these with a drizzle of cream cheese frosting instead of the white chocolate!


brenda September 6, 2014 at 12:37 pm

Just wondering,, can these treats be froze,, or will they go soggy,,, can anyone help me out on this,, thanks so much


Kris October 16, 2014 at 7:22 pm

There was no pumpkin spice pudding at the store But I found an alternative. They have pumpkin spice marshmallows! I got those, added a bit of pumpkin pie spice the same time I added vanilla pudding.
Turned out So yummy, they only lasted a short time in the house.
