Browned Butter Pumpkin Spice Krispie Treats

I am not a fancy person.
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.
That’s us.
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.
It will turn a golden brown color and develop a nutty aroma.
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.
Stir until marshmallows are melted.
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.
———————————————–
So, I couldn’t just let them be…you know how I am.
I had to make them a little cute.
So, I cut them out using a pumpkin cookie cutter.
And how sad…the scraps left over.
I should eat them…waste not, right?
I dipped the top into some orange candy melts and added some eyes and a mouth with icing.
I just happened to have some black sugar sprinkles in the pantry…so, why not…sprinkle eyes!
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.

Happy Monday!

I’ve been driving my husband crazy with talks of Autumn and everything pumpkin. I found this recipe on Pinterest a few weeks ago and finally had the time to make some tonight. My kitchen smelled so good when I was melting the marshmallows with the pumpkin pie spice! I was in heaven! I licked the spoon after mixing everything together and putting it in the dish. From that moment, I knew that I could never go back to regular krispie treats. I’m hooked! I’m looking forward to my husband getting home from work, making a fire in the back yard,… Read more »

Great tip on using browned butter–my French friends are having their first taste of Rice Krispies Treats this Saturday and I'm definitely trying it out!

Question:

When I eat these, can I wear an ascot and hold my pinky in the air?

I am assuming that will be not only totally fine, but expected.

Thanks for another Krispie recipe!! I am a firm believer that one can never have too many. YUM!!! 🙂

It is like you know what I want to make sometimes! I just made a trip over to London and I found Rice Krispies there. I bought two family sized boxes and carted them back over to the Netherlands so that I could make some Rice Krispy Treats (don't even get me started on what they don't have here). Now these are definitely fancy shmancy and I just might put on dark washed jeans and earings to eat them 🙂
