  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 5 cups miniature marshmallows, divided
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 5 cups rice krispie treat cereal
  • 1/2 tsp flaked sea salt
  • 2 tsp pumpkin spice creamer
  • 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup powdered sugar


  1. Grease a 9x9 squash pan with non-stick spray. 

  2. Add butter to a large skillet. Turn the heat on medium-high. Once the butter melts and starts to brown, swirl pan until butter smells nutty and is a deep golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. 

  3. Reduce the heat on low and add white chocolate, marshmallows, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until marshmallows and chocolate are melted, about 2-3 minutes. 

  4. Turn the heat off and add cereal and salt. Stir until combined. Press into prepared pan. Let set for 5 minutes. Cut into nine squares. 

  5. Whisk pumpkin creamer and powdered sugar together. Drizzle over treats.
