Double Pumpkin Butterscotch Rice Krispy Treats

I’m a fan of rice krispy treats. They seem fairly guiltless. And when you spice ‘em up a little, you get to pack a lot flavor into fewer calories than cake requires. And there are days that I just shouldn’t eat cake. Sad as it may be. I’m not one of those naturally skinny people. I have to work at it.

So I worked really hard this past weekend and made these tasty treats. :)

And they really do have a lot of flavor. A little more butterscotch-y than pumpin-y, but still yummy. They were quite popular among our friends.

If you’re anything like my husband, than you’re tired of all the pumpkin already. But if you’re like me then you’re still excited about it. At least for another few weeks. Which would be good because I’m not done with pumpkin yet.

So go ahead and enjoy these until I give you my next pumpkin treat!

  1. I love the colour – they look great!

  2. These look amazing, I’ve never had them in with pumpkin though…people in Australia don’t get as excited about pumpkin as our American cousins unfortunately!

  3. Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a
    free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Many thanks!

      Thank you! Whether or not to start with free or paid depends a bit on how comfortable you are with web stuff. It seemed overwhelming to me at first to start with self hosted, so I went with free for about a year. Transferring everything over once you’re ready to be self-hosted can be a pain though, so if you are comfortable, I’d say go with paid hosting from the beginning. Either way you go, WordPress is a great platform.
