Life Above the Clouds: How to Make Cannabis-Infused Pumpkin Pie Rice Krispie Treats

Happy fall! This is my favorite season. The weather starts to cool off, the holidays are right around the corner, and I can start eating pumpkin-everything. Have you had your first PSL (pumpkin spice latte) of the year yet? If not, perhaps you can kick off this fall's pumpkin obsession with infused Rice Krispie treats. They're sure to be a hit all of the season. 

Cannabis-Infused Pumpkin Pie Rice Krispie Treats

These gooey cannabis infused pumpkin pie rice krispie treats are the perfect fall treat!
Prep time: 10 min, Cook time: 30 min 
Serves 12


  • Sauce pan
  • 9×13" pan


  • 1 tablespoon cannabis butter
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 10 oz. bag mini marshmallows
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal


  • Line a 9×13 baking pan with parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray. Set pan aside.
  • In a large saucepan, melt both butters over medium-low heat. Add the pumpkin puree and continue to cook until it is warmed through. Stir in the vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.
  • Fold in the marshmallows, stirring frequently until completely melted, and remove from heat.
  • Pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal and stir until all of the cereal is evenly coated.
  • Pour mixture into the prepared baking pan and spread out evenly using a silicone spatula. Allow to cool for about 30 minutes before cutting into squares.
  • Store in an airtight container up to one week.


Sometimes I like to use an 8×8″ pan for really thick treats!


Few other entrepreneurs in the cannabis space have their hands in quite as many ventures as Lorne Gertner. Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
