Trick-or-Treat Rice Krispie Treats

Rice Krispie treats rank high on my list of favorite baked goods (though, to be technical, no baking is actually involved!). I made these slightly modified treats for a movie night with my friends. They are super fast and easy to make!

Yield: About 24-30 treats

A Halloween twist on a classic treat!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Additional Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 25 minutes


  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 5 cups rice cereal
  • 1 cup candy corn, divided
  • Halloween sprinkles (optional)


    1. Spray a 9×13″ baking pan with nonstick spray (or you can line the pan with parchment paper).

    2. In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat and stir in pumpkin pie spice. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.

    3. Add rice cereal and 3/4 cup candy corn – stir until well coated.

    4. Press the mixture into the prepared pan (it helps to use a nonstick spray-coated spatula or spoon). Press remaining 1/4 cup candy corn into the top of the cereal bars & top with sprinkles.

    5. Cool for 2 hours and cut into bars.


Your yield will depend on how big or small you cut your bars.
