Juuuuust when you thought my pumpkin obsession couldn’t get any worse…
I ended up walking past these yesterday while in good ‘ol Walmart and decided that I could not let them go untouched. I mean, they were only $1.25…they were practically begging to be thrown into my cart.
This whole summer, I’ve really been all about rice crispy treats. Anytime we’ve been out at a party and they’re there, I can’t get enough of ‘em (my friend, Andrea, makes some great ones!). Yet, I never end up making them myself.
That needed to be changed.
So this afternoon, I got my pumpkin marshmallows all cooked up.
And go to work on making some delicious pumpkin spice rice crispy treats.
Into the pan they went…
And then, just because a little extra chocolate is never a bad thing…
I came across this milk chocolate candy bar in the back of my fridge (leftover from my fun package in June) and decided I’d put it to use.
Knowing that the hubby can get weird about “extras” added into baked goods, I made sure to keep some nice and plain.
Then again, they are pumpkin, so something tells me he may not be in to these as much as I am.
Pumpkin Spice Rice Crispy Treats
Recipe from Kraft Foods
- 3 tbsp butter
- 1 package Pumpkin Spice Mallows Marshmallows
- 5 cups rice crispy cereal
- Optional: your favorite chocolate candy bar, cut into chunks
Line a 9×13” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
Microwave butter in a large microwave-safe bowl for 20-30 seconds, or until melted. Add marshmallows and toss to coat. Microwave about 1-1/2 minutes or until marshmallows are completely melted (check at around 45 seconds).
Add cereal and mix well. Press onto bottom of prepared pan. Press chocolate chunks into rice crispy treats, if desired. Allow to cool; cut and go to town!
I think these would be mighty fun and festive to celebrate the beginning of fall this coming Saturday, don’t you?
