We don’t sit on upholstered dining chairs for three course meals.
We don’t use cloth napkins..unless someone else is doing the laundry.
We are paper napkin folks. Paper napkins and 30 minute meals.
I understand, though, that “fancy” is a fairly relative adjective.
Ask me to dress fancy and I will put on my dark wash jeans and some earrings.
Where-as I am sure for some of you “pulled-together” ladies, my fancy is your casual.
I will spare you the gory details of my casual…it’s not cute.
So this dessert is MY version of fancy.
Only here will the word fancy and krispie treat be used in the same sentence.
That’s me. Elastic pants and all.
Browned Butter Pumpkin Spice Krispie Treats
1/4 cup salted butter
1 (10.5) oz bag mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispie cereal
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Spray 9×9 pan with non-stick spray.
Over med-low heat melt your butter.
Once your butter is melted, continue to cook until butter starts to brown.
Be careful not to burn. Once the butter begins to brown it can burn quickly.
Stir up any brown bits.
Add the marshmallows and pumpkin pie spice.
Remove from heat and stir in rice krispies.
When mixed spread the krispie mixture in your prepared pan.
Spray a sheet of wax paper or parchment with non-stick spray and gently press the krispies down evenly.
Let cool for 30 minutes and then cut into squares.
I had to make them a little cute.
So, I cut them out using a pumpkin cookie cutter.
I should eat them…waste not, right?
I will tell you that the browned butter totally makes a difference. A yummy difference. It’s worth the extra 5 minutes. Plus, it makes them fancy.
And we could all use a bit of fancy every now and then.
