Peanut Butter Cup Pumpkin Rice Crispy Treats made with no marshmallows! An easy and healthy rice crispy treat recipe with a fun fall twist.
Fun fact about me that you likely don’t know.
Homemade rice crispy treats are my absolute favorite dessert in the whole wide world. They triumph any banana bread in my book and you know that means business.
In college, I used to microwave a huge rice crispy treat that my cafeteria sold. I’m not talking the blue wrapper kind of rice crispy either. A homemade one with marshmallows, butter and extra chunks of marshmallows. Pop it into the microwave for 30 seconds and OMG!
My best friend’s mom actually made a huge rice crispy treat for my bachelorette party – that is how much I love them. Plus they are always a crowd pleaser. And in fact, they are surprisingly so much easier to make than most think.
Today we are making healthy homemade rice crispy treats with a twist.
There are are no marshmallows in these bad boys either. We’ll get to the ingredients in a moment, but let’s first talk about the run down of flavors happening here..
First off there is a peanut butter pumpkin bottom layer (the orange part). Then we add a dark chocolate crispy layer right on top and it is like a pumpkin peanut butter cup you guys! The flavors together are absolutely insane. Maybe it is the mom in me now that wants to make fun treats like this. But all I have to say is that when Ezra and his friends are able to eat fun treats like this, I will be making these on repeat.
