Pumpkin Chocolate Chips Rice Krispie, need I say more? This recipe definitely puts a spin on the traditional rice krispie treats by adding some fall favorites.
The ingredients needed to make these pumpkin chocolate chip rice krispie balls are pretty simple. You’ll need rice krispies, chocolate chips, butter, vanilla, salt, marshmallows, pumpkin spice and pumpkin puree.
To make this start by heating your butter over medium heat. Once melted add in pumpkin until blended together. Add marshmallows and continuing stirring until marshmallows are melted. Add in salt, vanilla and pumpkin spice.
Let sit for about 20 minutes until marshmallow mixture is cooled and reaches a caramel like thickness.
Add in rice krispies and then chocolate chips. Get out a cookie sheet and spray it with non stick cooking spray. Lay flat and press to mold rice kripies into pan.
Look for something circular. I used the top to a canning jar and cut out the rice kripies.
Once you cut them out shape them into balls. Lay on another cookie sheet and place them in the fridge for about an hour to help them set. If you don’t want to shape them, just put the cookie sheet in the fridge and after the hour cut them into whatever shape you want.
