You heard me, pumpkin spice rice krispy treats. Courtesy of these little guys, discovered yesterday in the holiday baking display at Walmart:
I made these in under 5 minutes, and they taste like autumn incarnate.
Pumpkin Spice Treats
1 8 oz package pumpkin spice marshmallows
3 Tbsp butter
5 cups puffed rice cereal
1. Spray a pan with non-stick cooking spray. If you like thinner treats, use a 9x13, if you like thicker treats (me!) use an 8x8.
2. Put the butter in a large microwaveable bowl, microwave for 45 sec, add the bag of marshmallows and stir until the mallows are coated. Back in the microwave for 45 secs, then give it a good stir. If everything is melted and smooth, move on, otherwise, back in for another 20-45 secs.
3. Once its melted and smooth, dump in the cereal and stir with a big spoon until the cereal is evenly coated and combined. Press into your pan. If you touch it with your hands, spray them with Pam first or you will have a sticky mess on your hands, literally.
4. Now just wait as long as you can for them to cool and harden. 1 hour? 5 min? Ok, 5 min. The fridge might help if you're in a hurry.
