Pinterest! For those of you who have never heard of it, Pinterest is a virtual bulletin board site where you grab photos (or "pins") of things you like and categorize them onto different "boards." I love it! I have a board specifically named "My Pumpkin Obsession," and I decided to make one of my pins- Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispies Treats!
I've eaten Rice Krispies treats most of my life (one of my favorite snacks!) so I wanted to mash it with my favorite flavor- pumpkin! The following recipe is for 12 servings, but I cut everything in half for just 6 bars. I also used my handy dandy Wilton Square muffin pan so I can create perfect squares without having to cut them out.
- 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 1/4 c pumpkin
- 1-10 oz bag mini marhsmallows + 1 cup
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of all spice
- pinch of nutmeg
- pinch of salt
- 6 cups Rice Krispies
*or press into your square muffin pan!*
These were as amazing as I thought they'd be! My brother snuck one and he loved it! Then he snuck another!
One thing I would probably change is the addition of the whole marshmallows at the end. The next time I try this recipe, I'll see how it is with all of the marshmallows melted at the same time.
Oh, feel free to pin me!
