Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats


  • 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 9-inch 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.

  1. Just ran across this recipe. looks yummy. I was wondering if you could use vanilla pudding with the spices for pumpkin pie?

  2. 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.

  16. rice krispie treats are one of my faves! these look so good!
    when i go to walmart i’m definitely look for the pudding too! 🙂

  17. I have a box of this pudding mix and haven’t decided what to do with it yet–but these are calling out my name…especially since I have everything to make them in my panry right now. LOVE rice krispie treats!!

  18. What a great idea to add pudding mix to Krispie Treats. These treats look and sound do good. I remember seeing the pumpkin pudding mix last year at Walmart and bought some…now it’s time to stock up again.

  19. 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!!!

  20. 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 🙂

  21. 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!

    1. 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!

  22. 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!!

  23. 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!

  24. 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!

  25. 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. 🙂

    1. 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!

  26. 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!
