And as you all know, pumpkin is my absolute faveeee Fall ingredient... So, I am extremely excited because now I have even more the excuse to try and throw it in every recipe out there.
Rice Krispies are obviously a delicious, fun treat that pretty much everyone pretty loves, so when I saw this idea of Rice Krispies + Pumpkin, I almost fell off my chair.
These chewy, ooey-gooey treats not only bring you back to your childhood of unwrapping those shiny blue packages of deliciousness stuffed away in your elementary school lunchbox, but they also pack a punch of pumpkin flavor that totally defines Autumn in one large, chewy bite.
They are extremely simple to make and because of the addition of pumpkin, they stay very moist and surprisingly soft... of course, making them that much more scrumptious.
With only a few ingredients and a quick preparation, you will have the best little treat to enjoy on a cool, breezy Autumn day! Believe me they are sooo worth making!
So I encourage (demand) you to go make some apple cider, put your Fall decorations up, and make these absolutely delicious krispie treats...
Just try to get them out of the pot before they're all in your mouth ;) Happy Autumn!
3 TBS butter
1/4 cup pumpkin, canned
10 oz bag marshmallows
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
Pinch of all-spice
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
5 cups Rice Krispies, cereal
In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat.
Add pumpkin once butter is melted. Stir. (It may look like the butter evaporates when you stir, but you want it to look that way.)
Add whole bag of marshmallows.
Consistently stir until all of the marshmallows are almost melted.
Add in spices, and stir until combined.
Let mixture sit for about 20 minutes, until room temperature. This will help the rice krispies not become soggy when added to the mixture.
Once mixture has come to room temperature, add the rice krispies, folding them in one cup at a time. Make sure the rice krispies are throughly incorporated. You may have to use your hands to fold them in!
Line a 9x9 brownie pan with wax paper and press rice krispie mixture into the pan.
Cut and serve! I even cut mine using a pumpkin cookie cutter! Soo cute and soooo scrumptious!
