These Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispy Treats are the perfect sweet treat this time of year. Let me tell you why...
1. They are an excellent holiday variation of an already delicious dessert. I mean...who doesn't like homemade Rice Krispy Treats?
2. They are extremely easy to make - which during this time of year is essential. Everyone is running around like crazy with a million things to do, so an easy go to dessert is sometimes necessary.
3. They are a GREAT comfort food after you come home for a particularly awful date. I know from experience...it was so bad it only lasted 34 minutes.
You are probably asking yourself, how did this 34 minute date happen?
A few months ago I decided it was time for me to get back into the dating game. I figured if I was ever going to get myself an Instagram Husband, I needed to start with finding a boyfriend. But how do you even find one? I was told you go on a dating app, swipe right on a bunch of people's faces, endure a a couple awkward dates and then one magically shows up.
Here I am three months later...and still no magic. After 20 minutes of me asking rapid fire questions about this boy's job, I literally ran out of things to say. And for those who know me...that doesn't happen often. I started panicking and sweating and then I blacked out. I have no recollection of how I got out of there, but somehow I ended up back in the car driving home to stuff my face with Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispy Treats. It turns out you can eat a lot of these and not feel sick at all.
So if you are feeling particularly stressed this holiday season - it may not be a bad date, but an annoying family member, or awkward dinner conversation - these will definitely make it all better. I recommend a dose of about 4 - 5. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
