Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Coat a rectangular 9×13-inch baking dish with a thin layer of butter or a non-stick spray to prepare for the treat mixture.
  2. Begin by placing a sizable pot over a medium flame and toss in both the butter and pumpkin puree. Stir these together until well combined. To this, incorporate the vanilla extract and a blend of spices—cinnamon, ginger, and cloves—along with a pinch of salt. Continue to stir until the mixture is evenly heated and well mixed. Next, introduce the marshmallows to the pot. Keep stirring consistently over the same medium heat until the marshmallows are completely melted, which should take around 5 minutes. After removing the pot from the heat, let the mixture sit to cool for a period of 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Now, it’s time to add the crispy cereal into the mix. Stir thoroughly to ensure each piece of cereal is fully enveloped in the pumpkin and marshmallow blend—this step might take a bit of effort!
  4. Transfer the sticky concoction into your greased baking dish. Use a spatula to evenly press down and smooth out the mixture. For a quick set, place the dish in the freezer and chill until the mixture is no longer warm, which should be about 15 to 30 minutes.
  5. When ready to serve, loosen the treat from the edges of the pan with a knife and turn it out onto a cutting board. With a large, sharp knife, cut the sheet into individual bar servings.

Notes

  • – For a firmer bar, you can reduce the amount of pumpkin puree.
    – If you prefer a less pronounced pumpkin flavor, adjust the amount of pumpkin pie spice to taste.
    – To prevent sticking, lightly grease your hands or spatula when pressing the mixture into the baking dish.
