Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Feel free to grab pumpkin spice mallows and use those for your pumpkin pie rice Krispie treat filling. 
  • You want to make sure you use a deep dish pie plate. This helps you to make a nice deep pie. If you don’t have one you can use an 8-inch cake pan as well. 
  • If you have extra crust and filling you can use muffin tins to make mini pumpkin pie rice Krispie treats. 
  • If you want your pumpkin pie filling to be a nice orange color, be sure to add orange food coloring. For best results, add it to the marshmallow mixture. 
  • It’s best to get each layer packed tight. This makes it easier to slice once it’s set. 
  • It works best to use your hand or spatula that is sprayed with cooking spray to spread your rice Krispie treats. This helps prevent them from sticking as you try to manipulate them. 
  • You can melt the marshmallow on medium to low heat on the stove if you prefer.
