Can we talk about fall for a second? Does anyone else kind of feel like we’re getting cheated just a bit?

The weather has been crazy warm here in Ohio. Our air conditioning is still running pretty much nonstop and Elle was wearing her favorite summer dress and flip flops a few days ago because it was almost 80 degrees.

And don’t even get me started on the leaves – 80% of them are still green and there are hardly any on the ground. Which by the way, I know I shouldn’t be complaining about, but guys, I love fall and I’m just not feeling very fall-ish right now.

I mean, it’s too hot to sip pumpkin spice lattes and if I put a sweater on at 6:30 AM, I am 100% regretting that decision by 10:00 AM.

Frosted Maple Pecan Marshmallow Cereal Treats are a surefire no-bake treat. A perfect fall inspired treat!

I want crisp air, cozy sweaters, hot cocoa and piles of gorgeous leaves. Right now, it almost seems weird to have pumpkins, cornstalks and mums on my porch.

In fact, I took Elle to the pumpkin patch last week and I broke a sweat while picking apples. Which was partially due to the fact that I wanted to look all fall-ish for pics and dressed way too warmly for the weather. So instead of looking cute, I looked like I just stepped out of a 60 minute hot yoga class.

Even though the weather isn’t cooperating, I decided to jump right back in to fall treat-making after we returned from vacation. First on my list were these Frosted Maple Pecan Marshmallow Cereal Treats.

If you follow My Baking Addiction on a regular basis, you know that I am a big fan of marshmallow cereal treats. From these Birthday Marshmallow Cereal Treats and S’mores Marshmallow Crispy Treats to these Berry Cereal Treats, I’m all about that ooey-gooey crispy goodness!

Frosted Maple Pecan Marshmallow Cereal Treats are a surefire no-bake treat. Easy and delish!

These Frosted Maple Pecan Marshmallow Cereal Treats use Campfire® Maple Roasters to impart a lovely maple flavor to these cereal treats. A little cinnamon, chopped pecans, and a layer of maple-cinnamon buttercream push them into ultimate fall food territory.

I took these to Elle’s school for the staff and someone actually said they don’t typically like marshmallow cereal treats, but these changed her mind because she deemed them as the best marshmallow cereal treats – ever!

If you can’t find Campfire® Maple Roasters in your area, I’ve got ya covered. Simply sub in Campfire® Mini White Marshmallows and add 2 1/2 teaspoons of maple extract to the melted marshmallow mixture.

Even better, if it’s still warm in your neck of the woods too, these are a no-bake treat! All the right flavors to get you in an autumnal mood without the need to crank up the oven is just about right for this kooky weather we’re having.

As you may remember, I’m partnering with Emily from Jelly Toast and Campfire® Marshmallows. We’ve got tons of great recipes from the past couple of years, and more to come!

Frosted Maple Pecan Marshmallow Cereal Treats

Prep: 20 minutes
Total: 20 minutes
Servings: 9 large bars
Frosted Maple Pecan Marshmallow Cereal Treats are a surefire no-bake treat. They taste warm and toasty without the need to turn on your oven!


  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 24 ounces Campfire® Maple Roasters
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 8 cups crisped rice cereal
  • 1 cup Campfire® Mini White Marshmallows optional
  • cup chopped pecans
  • ½ cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar sifted
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons maple extract
  • 1-3 teaspoons milk
  • cup chopped pecans for garnish optional


  • Line a 9 x 9-inch baking pan with parchment paper or foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In large pan, melt butter over low heat. Add in Maple Roasters and stir until completely melted. Note: These marshmallows are pretty large, so they will take a bit of time to melt. If you're short on time, you can use kitchen scissors to cut the marshmallows into smaller pieces, which will help them melt quicker.
  • Stir in cinnamon and vanilla.
  • Gradually add crisped rice cereal; stirring until well coated. Fold in the mini marshmallows and pecans until thoroughly incorporated.
  • Use a buttered spatula or clean hands to firmly press the mixture into the prepared pan. Cool completely.

For the Buttercream

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter on medium-high speed for about 5 minutes.
  • With the mixer on low speed, slowly add in powdered sugar and cinnamon and continue beating until combined.
  • Add in the vanilla extract, maple extract, and 1 teaspoon of milk. Mix on low speed until incorporated.
  • Turn the mixer up to high speed and beat the frosting until it is smooth and fluffy; about 4-5 more minutes. If your frosting is too thick, gradually add a little more milk, 1 teaspoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
  • Spread or pipe frosting onto cooled marshmallow cereal treats and top with chopped pecans.


  • I cut these cereal treats into 9 large pieces. I then piped the buttercream in a zig-zag pattern using a Wilton 2a piping tip.
  • If you want the bars to be thinner, I'd suggest using a 9 x 13-inch pan instead of a 9 x 9-inch pan.
  • If you can't find Campfire® Maple Roasters in your area, I've got ya covered. Simply sub in 2 (10.5-ounce) packages of Campfire® Mini White Marshmallows and add 2 1/2 teaspoons of maple extract to the melted marshmallow mixture.

    I made this today, the only thing I changed was I crumbled some crumbled maple bacon on the top. These things are flipping delicious! My family LOVED them!

    1. Jamie says:

      Crumbled maple bacon? YES, please! That little tweak sounds all kinds of amazing! Thanks so much for leaving your feedback.

    So nice and easy. Perfect timing ! Thank you so much !

  5. Jennifer Essad says:

    your recipe is one I’m anxious to try, I never would have thought of a maple version of marshmallow treats.  When I make a batch of them I can’t stop at just one!

    1. Jamie says:

      They are so good, Jennifer! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

  6. Cheryl says:

    Fall???????? Right now my roof thermometer says 104 in San Gabriel Valley of California (near LA).
    80 degrees would seem like Fall!

    1. Jamie says:

      Okay, I should probably stop complaining. I don’t know that I would function in 104 degree temperatures! Stay cool, Cheryl! Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Megan says:

    My son is to take a special “treat” just for him on Halloween and I think he will love these! It’s a nut-free classroom so I will either just leave out the pecans or sub something else. Do you have any substitute suggestions? Thank you!

    1. Jamie says:

      Hello! I would just leave them out. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  8. Pamela G. says:

    These look like something that would be nice to send in the care package to my nephew at grad school and I have the marshmallows. I found them last week at Target. But, unlike his undergraduate days when UPS was overnight Indiana is 2 or 3 days from Maryland so things don’t arrive quite so quickly. How would you suggest shipping these? Would I be better to cut in the 9 servings and wrap individually or pull the entire tray out and wrap as one item?

    1. Jamie says:

      I would package them whole in an airtight container. I’d probably leave the frosting off of them as I think it would get everywhere. I hope this helps.
