Spiced and delicious, these Rice Krispies Treats get jazzed up by pumpkin spice

You know how people go around saying things are their jam? Well, Rice Krispies Treats are my jam. I could eat them at almost any time. They are so sweet and delicious, and that marshmallow chew is the best. This recipe doesn't deviate too far from the traditional one but delivers big on flavor.

To give these treats a taste of fall, I threw in a little pumpkin pie spice seasoning, and instead of just melted butter, I used browned butter. It brings a nice, nutty flavor to just about any dish, but it's my favorite when used in desserts. These are the perfect fall treat.

These sweet, pumpkin pie-spiced, jazzed-up Rice Krispies Treats are the perfect way to welcome fall. Plus, the addition of browned butter takes this simple treat and elevates it to a whole new level.

Yields 1 (9 x 13-inch) dish

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
