Pumpkin Rice Crispy Treats Take I

We are almost in the home stretch of Vegan MoFo 2012! I am admittedly a bit relieved because posting every day has overly challenged my delicate brain. It has also motivated me, which is always nice!

A few days ago I posted here and on Facebook about a 2-pound bag of Sweet & Sara marshmallows I received in the mail. I asked people what I should make and my favorite reply came from Jessica over at Awesome Vegan Rad. She suggested pumpkin rice crispy treats. What a super idea, right?

I finally had some time to attempt a recipe this afternoon. It wasn’t a complete success. It wasn’t a failure either. While the outcome tastes very pumpkin-y, the texture is a bit off. They are crispy and¬†slightly soft. It’s hard to explain. They hold up fairly well after a short stint in the refrigerator. I think all the recipe needs is an adjustment in the amount of pumpkin puree. I will make them again, but for now, my sweet tooth is satisfied.

  1. They look heavenly!
    For some reason I want to add peanut butter. It’s just one of those cold rainy days when I want PB with everything. {{sigh}} :)

  2. Holy moly. I’m so glad you did this! Bummer about the texture, but I bet with some tweaking it would be amazing. I’ll have to snag a bag of vegan ‘mallows and try this out myself soon. (Good thing I have a trip to the ‘health food’ store planned for tomorrow.)

  3. Last year I overdid it with the pumpkin and am still trying to reclaim my propensity towards it. It hasn’t helped that my dog eats canned pumpkin ever day; the smell is a little much. But, I’ve made concession for Lula’s incredible pumpkin ice cream so perhaps I can do the same for these delicious looking treats.
