Gift Idea: Pumpkin Rice Crispy Treats

A special someone would be utterly charmed by this tasty concoction.
Christmas is just five days away!
There's something so special about a rice crispy treat. Imagine giving that away as a present.
Put a little sweeter twist with additive pumpkin flair. Pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and pumpkin seeds are mixed in traditional batter, and when cooked together with melted Dandies marshmallows expect the kitchen to be a fragrant autumn enchantment only lacking colorful leaves falling downward.
I sampled a few for breakfast, impressed by the scent and delightful flavor, the pleasing warmth blended well together. Plus, being a visual person, I adored the family of orange colors with pops of green.
If this is too risky of a gift idea, especially if your special someone doesn't like pumpkin, try these original rice crispy treats-- my first foray into making a childhood classic! 

Six ingredients away from a treat!
Pumpkin Rice Crispy Treats Ingredients and Preparation

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 10 oz bag Dandies Miniature Marshmallows
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
5 cup Crispy Rice Cereal
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (optional)

In a medium temperature skillet, heat up olive oil with marshmallows, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin pie spice. Blend well. When melted, turn off stove and add in crispy rice cereal a cup at a time and pumpkin seeds a tablespoon at a time.
Press mixture down onto foil or parchment paper in a pan. Store at room temperature or refrigerate.
Cut into bars and prep for gift wrapping, but save a few for yourself. Tis the season.
