Wanna know something?
I’m a little sick of pumpkin spice lattes.
I used to be on pins and needles about when I could get the first one of the year. And I savored it like it was the last one on earth; I licked that cup clean. But then they started advertising them in, like, April and I got a little annoyed. Maybe a bit pumpkin-spiced out. So I haven’t had one this year.
But as I went to make some treats for a playdate, I thought pumpkin spice might be a nice fall twist on the classic Rice Krispie treat. I. Was. Right.
Looking for a fall version of one of the yummiest, simplest treats around? Look no further. This is a super-flavorful, lightly-spiced crunchy sweet treat. I originally made these for a kid playdate, but the adults ended up loving them so much we moved them right out of the playroom and into the living room.
While there’s not actual pumpkin in these (that’s a blog disaster for another time — but let’s just say it wasn’t good), these rely on pumpkin pie spice for a fall twist. In addition to the added spice, these treats use browned butter — mmmmmmmmm — which makes them taste all toasty and nutty.
Betcha can’t eat just one…
