Recipe - Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Squares

Rice Krispie squares are one of my favourite things to make. Recently I've started making different versions for the holidays.  I found a recipe for pumpkin spice Rice Krispie squares so I decided to try them. I modified the recipe for the microwave.  I've never made Rice Krispie squares on the stovetop, so I wasn't going to start now.

Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Squares

3 tbsp butter
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla (I used vanilla bean paste)
Pinch of nutmeg
Pinch of allspice
1 bag of marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies

Melt butter in a large microwaveable bowl, about 30 seconds.  Add pumpkin, marshmallows, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and allspice.  Stir to coat.

Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes until marshmallows are melted.  Stir together and then let sit until it reaches room temperature.  Then stir in Rice Krispies and press into a greased 9x13 pan.  If you mix them in too early the cereal will get too soggy. 

My taste tester liked them.
