INGREDIENTS

1 cup M&M’S Milk Chocolate Candies

3 tbsp butter

1 pkg (10 oz) mini marshmallows

3/4 tsp pumpkin spice mix

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp maple extract

6 cups crispy rice cereal

DIRECTIONS

1. Line 13- x 9-inch pan with enough foil to overhang sides. Spray with cooking spray.

2. In large microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter for about 45 seconds or until melted. Add marshmallows; toss to coat. Microwave for about 1 minute, stirring once halfway, or until marshmallows are melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in spice mix, vanilla and maple extract.

3. Stir in cereal. Stir in M&M’S until well combined; press evenly into prepared pan. Let cool for at least 30 minutes.

4. Use foil overhang to lift from pan; cut into bars.

• Make your own pumpkin spice mix by stirring together 1/4 tsp each ground ginger and cinnamon and 1/8 tsp each ground allspice, cloves and nutmeg.

• Store squares between layers of waxed paper in airtight container for up to 1 week.
