Pumpkin Marble Crispy Squares


After posting my favourite vegan and gluten-free crispy square recipe, I came across Dandies Vegan Pumpkin Mini Marshmallows. They have a mild but delicious pumpkin flavour and since they're more natural than other alternatives, my children don't bounce off the walls after eating them. Me and my girls so much fun making them today, and they test so good, I had to share :)

Have a safe and spooky Halloween!

1/2 block of Earth Balance Vegan buttery sticks

1 package of Dandies Vegan Pumpkin Mini Marshmallows 

2 cups of Nature’s Path Organic Crispy Rice cereal

  2. Remove saucepan from the heat and stir in cereal. Stir until the cereal is well coated in melted marshmallow.
  3. Using a spatula, wooden spoon or wax paper, evenly press the mixture into 1-1/2-quart 9-inch pan or dish (lightly coat the spatula and dish with a bit of the buttery spread first to help avoid sticking).
