Pumpkin and Peanut Butter Chocolate Covered Rice Krispie Treats

Fall is here!

Which in layman’s terms means- I get to put pumpkin in just about everything!

I spied this fun bag of Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows and just had to put them into some gooey and rich Rice Krispie Treats. These are not your typical Rice Krispie Treats.

There is not one tiny bit of butter in this recipe.

Does that mean these are healthy?!?


Tricked ya!

So fall break started this week and that means the kids are off school.

We took the opportunity to torture ourselves drive all the way up to Utah to visit some family.

The Man and I ditched dropped off the kids with his mom and spent one night in Las Vegas. In my mind I am still waaay too young to be let loose in Vegas. When we were first married we both got carded all the time when we were just playing the slot machines.

Even when the lady walking around asked for my drink order and I replied, “Oh! Do you have Mountain Dew?” She carded me…

This time… we didn’t get carded once.

I guess I’m getting older, even though I am reluctant.

Anywho… what makes me feel younger is Rice Krispie Treats {and botox}.

Instead of butter, you add 1 cup corn syrup, and 1 cup sugar in a large sauce pan over high heat. Mix until it starts to slightly boil and then add 1 cup of peanut butter.

Here’s a way to get rid of those aging mommy arms! My 7 year old says to me the other day, “Mom, how come your arm muscles are on the bottom of your arm and not on the top?”
Stir, stir, stir!

Let the chocolate harden again. Sometimes you can throw it in the fridge if you’re impatient like me. Cut into little squares and enjoy!

All the pumpkin and peanut butter gooey goodness is just the right mixture to make me feel like a kid again.
