Pumpkin Spice Treats

During the same stop at Wal-Mart that produced the dolphin cutter, my daughter found Pumpkin Spice marshmallows and had to have them. They are orange and pumpkin shaped, very cute. I instantly had thoughts of wonderful lunch box pumpkin patches! Of course my dreams were shattered when we got home and she declared that she did not like them :(  Too much spice she said.

So on the back of the bag they said to use them for rice cereal treats. So I was back in business for cute treats. The bag recipe said to make them in the microwave but I did them the old fashioned stove top way as I think they turn out better. I cut mine into Halloween shapes and added Halloween sprinkles to half the batch since not everyone in my family is a sprinkle fan. To do that I just pressed the sprinkles into the top of one half of the treats while still warm before I cut them.
Since my daughter didn't like them, I made them for my husband to take to work. However my daughter tried the treats and said they tasted pretty good so we kept a few at home for her ;)  They were a huge hit at work and I think they would make a great alternative to traditional cereal treats that always turn up at school parties. I also threw a few of the marshmallows in my latte and it was pretty tasty. I think they'd be great in hot cocoa too!

Have a relaxing Sunday!
