Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats
Well, they are not actually as adventurous as they sound, but nevertheless, I thought they were pretty ingenious.
for best buddy of BOOF's birthday (Mo), I wanted to send her something delicious and GLUTEN FREE to celebrate it with since I could not be there myself. It was fall and I love me some pumpkin and I know that Mo does too, but I wanted to do something other than a pumpkin pie or pumpkin bread because I needed to overnight whatever I was making. Because of their gluten-free nature, I decided on a Rice Krispie Treat of the Pumpkin variety. Now, I was not able to find some ingenious way to add to infuse the pumpkin into the rice krispies, but what I did was pretty stellar and i even had enough to give some to my classmates...who loved it too.
1 Box of Rice Krispies (but you'll only need about 8 cups)
1 Pack of Marshmallows (mini or regular)
1 1/4 cup of pureed pumpkin (canned or fresh)
1 8oz package of cream cheese
1 cup of Confectionery sugar
1) Follow the directions on the box for making rice krispie treats :-)
2) Spread rice krispie treats into 9x13 or 9x9 pan
3) Add Pumpkin and Cream Cheese together and mix well. Add 1/2 cup of confectionery sugar to the pumpkin and cream cheese and mix well. Check the consistency and flavor. If too thick, add some more confectioners sugar.
4) Once icing is too your liking, spread on top of the rice krispie treats.
5) Share and Enjoy!
Man o man. these are quite tasty. It is not too inventive but yet it is quick, easy and delicious.
