Fall’s officially here, and obsession with all things pumpkin is in full swing.

If you saw our list of 5 amazing vegan pumpkin products, you’re aware that Dandies — purveyor of fabulous vegan marshmallows — makes a seasonal pumpkin spice ‘mallow. When used to make a vegan version of the iconic crispy rice treat, the end result is pure pumpkin-palooza!

Here’s a recipe for pumpkin spice rice crisp treats, courtesy of the fine folks at Dandies:

Ingredients: 

  • 1 10 oz bag of Dandies Pumpkin Marshmallows or Dandies Marshmallows (Pumpkin Dandies are ideal for this recipe, but regular vanilla-flavored Dandies can be substituted)
  • 2 Tbsp vegan margarine
  • 5 cups Crisp Rice Cereal
  • 2 Tbsp Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Clove
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg

Instructions:
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine Dandies, margarine, and maple syrup. In 30-second intervals, with a quick stir between each, microwave until marshmallows are fully melted. Stir in spices. Mix in cereal and stir until evenly coated with marshmallow cream. Press mixture into a 9×9 pan. Once cool, cut into squares, and enjoy! Recipe by Chelsie Jangord.

Now go enjoy a pan-full of these gooey, sweet treats. There’s no way you can eat just one.
