Chewy no bake Pumpkinroos are a fall twist on classic scotcheroos! An easy, chewy, sweet n’ salty make ahead no-bake treat.
My house smells like heaven. Pure heaven. As long as heaven smells like pumpkin and spices and fall things, which I’m convinced it does. The holiday baking bug has settled in early this year and I’m not even trying to resist. If you can’t beat it, bake it, right??
Or something like that.
These Pumpkinroos from Karo® Syrup are a fun, fall-flavor twist on classic Scotcheroos and are absolutely to die for. The best part? Easy to make, NO BAKE, and prep time is 20 minutes or less! The first thing you’ll do is combine crisp rice cereal, toasted oat cereal, and crushed pretzels in a large bowl. Don’t worry about taking the time to chop the pretzels, crushing them by the handful does the trick without having to dirty a knife and cutting board.
Next you’ll melt sugar and Karo® Syrup in a pan on the stove. The Karo Syrup gives these bars just the right amount of sweetness to let the almond butter and pumpkin pie spice shine through, and creates the perfect gooeylicious consistency to bring all of those cereals and pretzels together in a minute. Once your mixture is smooth, stir in the almond butter and pumpkin pie spice until nice and creamy.
Stir the cereals and pretzels in with the almond butter mixture until all of the ingredients and coated well. Transfer to a large baking pan, press into an even layer, and chill until firm. The last step is to cut into bars, dip in melted white chocolate, and sprinkle with some chopped nuts and a little extra pumpkin pie spice. That’s it! These are so good, you may want to double the batch and bake a little extra. It’s a great way to show someone you care and a fun, Halloween classroom treat!
