Over the weekend, I needed a quick dessert. I had all the ingredients to make rice krispie treats, but desired to make something with a fall flavor.
These went together in a pinch and we enjoyed them a great deal. That’s the polite way of saying half the pan was gone within an hour!
Try them … they are a great and simple fall recipe.
Apple Cinnamon Rice Krispie Treats
- 3 T butter
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp. ginger
- 1 bag mini marshmallows
- 6 C brown rice krispies
- 1/2 C dried apples, finely chopped
Prepare a 9x13 glass baking dish by spraying it with cooking spray.
Begin by melting the 3 T butter in a large sauce pan.
Stir in the spices. Feel free to add more/less to taste.
Add in the marshmallows, reduce heat to med-low and stir until they are melted.
Stir in the dried apple pieces.
Carefully, and quickly, spread the rice krispie marshmallow goodness into the greased 9x13 baking dish. If needed, spray your spatula with olive oil spray to help wrangle those sticky krispies into their place.
Allow the rice krispie treats to cool to room temperature before diving in.
If you don’t devour them immediately, cover and store on the counter for about a week.
But, they won’t last that long!
