Expert Tips

  • Prepare Pan – Make sure to prepare baking dish and spray with cooking spray. This helps when serving and for easy clean up.
  • Mixing Ingredients – Make sure to cover the ingredients with the melted marshmallow mixture.
  • Cool Treats – Allow for the treat to cool at room temperature. Do not place in the refrigerator.
  • Parchment Paper – I find it easy to press the treat mixture into the pie plate with parchment paper.
  • Topping – You can make these rice krispie treats into many different things. We love the orange color but you can also add sprinkles or candy eyes.
  • Fresh Ingredients – When making these treats, it is best to use fresh ingredients. The marshmallows melt better and the treats just taste better.

Can you Freeze Rice Krispie Treats?

I do not recommend freezing rice krispie pumpkin pie. It will change the texture of the final product and cause it to harden.

Storage

Do not store in the refrigerator. They are best left to cool at room temperature so that the remain gooey and delicious. Place inside an airtight container.
