I know, I know. You’re probably thisclose to being completely over the whole pumpkin spice craze. America seems to have reached peak PSL this fall, with products ranging from vodka to nail polish. But before you slam the door on all things cinnamon and nutmeg, you have to try this 15 minute recipe. I promise that it won’t push you over the PSL precipice, but it might inspire you to cuddle up in your fave pair of yoga pants and a flattering infinity scarf.
Start by whipping up one cup of Bettercreme frosting liquid. As it is mixing, pour in the vial of coffee flavoring. The vanilla and coffee flavors combine to create a perfect creamy latte taste. You can probably try this flavoring trick with other frosting recipes too. If you give them a shot, let me know how it turns out!
While the mixer is running, pop the marshmallows and butter into the microwave. Mix in the cereal and dump the whole mixture into a greased 9×13. Spread the cereal mixture into the pan, but DO NOT pack the cereal down! If you’ve ever had a rice krispie treat that was tough or too chewy, it’s probably because the person who made them jammed the cereal mixture down into the pan. No bueno.
Once the Bettercreme has reached soft peak consistency, add it to the top of the treats, covering the whole pan of cookies.
You can make a whole pan of these amazing treats in less time than it would take you to order a PSL on a busy day at the coffee shop.
If you have had it with all things pumpkin spice, I can’t say that I really blame you, though. I would feel so bad if an ill-conceived can of Pumpkin Spice Pringles prevented you from enjoying these delightful treats. They are totally worth being basic for.
