Take A Bite Of: JennyMac's Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats

Fall kicks off what is my favorite time of year in the kitchen. From October to January, my creativity and interest in cooking and baking is higher than normal so the production of treats (and some that turned out to be not quite my favorites) is historically appreciated by co-workers and teachers at MiniMac's school.

I was unaware until recently such a thing existed as pumpkin spiced marshmallows. As soon as I saw them, I thought it would be an easy twist on Rice Krispie Treats and perfect for the numerous Halloween parties coming forth. So, I tried them. They are awesome. I gave them to many people to taste test (JMac voted a strong no against a pumpkin flavored anything so he is no longer on the judging panel for this particular good.) Even weary people told me they were fabulous. I added a little pumpkin spice as well. Oh, my favorite part? They take about 15 minutes to make. From my kitchen to yours, enjoy every bite.

JennyMac's Pumpkin spiced Rice Krispie Treats

4 T butter
10 oz of pumpkin spiced marshmallows (bags are 8 oz each so buy 2.)
6 cups of Rice Krispies
2 t pumpkin spice

Follow traditional directions to melt butter and marshmallows. I spray my spatula with cooking spray to keep the marshmallow sauce in the pan and not on the implement. Add pumpkin spice and stir.
Mix in Rice Krispies. Add more if you need to balance out the ratio. You dont want them dry and you dont want them oversauced.

Pour into greased 9.5 x 13 pan. I then use a square of parchment paper to press them firmly and flatly in the pan. Let them cool. Share. Eat. Enjoy.
