Last week we talked apple treats, and this week it’s pumpkin time. You’re picking pumpkins this year, right? If only from the grocery store? Now all you have to do is seed, peel, and cube your pumpkin. Then roast and puree the pumpkin flesh and we’re almost ready to start. You have homemade pie crust ready, right?
Heh. You were getting worried there, admit it. We’d never put you through all that.
These six pumpkin-inspired sweets do not call for hours in the kitchen. In fact, they don’t even require a recipe. Hold on to your gourds, cool moms: you can order these fun treats over the internet. The only finger you have to lift to enjoy these is the one you need to type out your mailing address.
I need these Pumpkin Spice Crispy Rice Treats (above) from Treat House in NYC, like now. Lucky for me, I can place an order for store pick-up. Lucky for you, Treat House ships within the continental United States so long as you order a minimum of 12 treats. Who’s in with me?
Want to whip up your own pumpkin spice crispy rice treats? Or maybe pumpkin spice s’mores? (Just saying.) Then you need these Jet Puffed Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows (available through our Amazon affiliate or any grocery store). How good would these be with hot chocolate? The possibilities are endless.
If cupcakes are more your thing, these Pumpkin Cupcakes from famed cupcakery Sprinkles are for you. Spiced pumpkin cake topped with sweet cinnamon cream cheese frosting delivered to your door? You can’t go wrong.
We can’t talk classic treat brands without talking M&Ms. This year, the candy giant has gotten into the seasonal fun with Pumpkin Pie Spice M&Ms (available through our Amazon affiliate or stores everywhere). I can’t vouch for what “natural and artificial flavors” means but I can guarantee that these are bonkers in the most delicious way.
Gimbal’s offers a pumpkin spice candy for you all-natural mamas. Their seasonal Harvest Mix Gourmet Jelly Beans are made with real fruit juice and without high fructose corn syrup. They are also top 8 allergen free. The bonus? In addition to the Pumpkin Pie jelly bean, you’ll also get to try flavors including Roasted Marshmallow, Peach Cobbler, Red Delicious, and more!
Another all-natural option is from Cool Mom Picks fave siggi’s yogurt. You’ll have to get off of your computer for this low-sugar treat, since their limited edition Pumpkin & Spice flavor is exclusively available at Whole Foods, but it’s worth it.
