Pumpkin Spice Krispie Treats

A fall twist on a classic and yummy treat! This is really simple to make and is for anyone to enjoy.

Step One:
Gather your ingredients--

-12 cups Rice Krispies
-6tbsp butter
-2 8oz. bags Pumpkin Spice marshmallows
-Brown sugar
-Cinnamon
-Ground Cloves
-Ginger
-Nutmeg
-Powdered sugar

Step Two:
In a large pot combine butter and marshmallows.

Step Three:
Add brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Now, this I did by eye. You can add as much or as little as you like depending on how strong you want the "pumpkin pie" taste to be. Be careful with the sugar, it will make things VERY sticky. Stir.

Step Three:
Add Rice Krispies and stir. Your arm will get tired and you'll get pretty frustrated, but you'll be fine.

Step Four:
Spoon out contents from pot into a foil cake sheet--I like using these because they are disposable and they give the treats a nice shape/depth.

Step Five:
Place treats in freezer to set. While you're waiting for that, make a glaze to put on top. Powdered sugar, butter, a bit of brown sugar and a bit of cinnamon. Microwave the butter until almost liquid, add sugars and cinnamon and whisk together.


Step Six:
Remove treats from fridge and drizzle glaze over top. Place back into the freezer until a half hour until you're about to serve them. The treats will need some time to thaw so you can cut into squares.

2. Decorations

Halloween and Christmas are the top decoration holidays of the year. There are about a million different Halloween decorations you could break out whether you buy them at Target or you make them yourself!

Music is super important because even if it's scary, it's still a party. Create a fun playlist with classics such as "The Monster Mash" and "Thriller."
