Sewing Snacks :: S'more and Caramel Pumpkin Pecan Rice Krispie Treats

I'm always happy to bake treats to share at our local quilt guild meeting and these were the yummy offerings from last night's meeting. I figured everyone loves Rice Krispie treats but I wanted something a little more special. 

S'mores Rice Krispie Treats

4T butter (1/2 stick)
1 10oz bag marshmallows
4 C rice krispie cereal
2 C Golden Grahams cereal
1 C chocolate chips
Marshmallow Bits to sprinkle on top

Spray a 9"x13" with cooking spray (or butter) and set aside.

Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat until melted, add the marshmallows and continue stirring until smooth.

Remove the pan from heat and stir in the cereals and chocolate chips. Press mixture into prepared pan - I use a piece of waxed paper to keep mixture from sticking to me or spoon.

Sprinkle with Marshmallow Bits and cool until set.

These are the other variation I came up with and they were rich but oh so delicious and full of Fall flavor - there's no pumpkin in this recipe but pumpkin pie spice!

Caramel Pecan Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats

1/2 C butter (1 stick)
1/2 C dark brown sugar, packed
1/4 C heavy whipping cream
1 T light corn syrup 
pinch of kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

1 C chopped pecans
2 C Golden Grahams cereal
4 C Rice Krispie cereal

Butter or spray a 9"x13" pan and set aside.

In a large saucepan melt butter (med-high heat) then add brown sugar, cream, corn syrup, salt and spice. Cook until thick and syrupy while stirring frequently (I pretty much stirred the whole time), about 5 - 7 minutes.

Add the marshmallows and stir until they are melted and smooth. Then remove from heat and stir in cereals and half of chopped pecans, mix well. Press in prepared pan and sprinkle with remaining pecans. Cool until set. Cut into squares and enjoy!

Happy Friday everyone!
