With only two additional ingredients, you can have your fave fall beverage in Rice Krispie Treat form! These Pumpkin Spice Latte Rice Krispie Treats are as easy as traditional RKTs, but fall-ified! And everything is better when it’s fall-ified!
These Pumpkin Spice Latte Rice Krispie Treats are one of the easiest ways to bring more fall into your life. You can make them in the same amount of time as regular RKTs, and you only need two additional ingredients. You guessed it: pumpkin spice and instant coffee granules. That’s it. But with just those simple tweaks, these Pumpkin Spice Latte Rice Krispie Treats are a whole new RKT experience.
I almost drizzled these Pumpkin Spice Latte Rice Krispie Treats with a coffee glaze, but I just didn’t feel like it would necessarily add anything, and it created an extra step. They’re so good the way they are, and I was in a place where I really wanted my recipes to be quick and simple.
If you’re tempted like I was, I have a coffee glaze recipe in these Pumpkin Spice Latte Cookies. Or if you find yourself needing another PSL fix, those cookies are amazing. The chewiest pumpkin cookies you’ll ever find.
Anyway, this is the year of Rice Krispie Treats for me, apparently. I’ve always liked Rice Krispie Treats… I mean, who doesn’t? They’re virtually impossible not to like. I love them even more as an adult though than I did as a kid.
They’ve grown on me even more in adulthood, and I think that’s for a few reasons: 1. Exposure. I really didn’t grow up with RKTs! They weren’t something my Mom or Gma made, and so I never really had them a lot. They’re not nostalgic for me at all. Not really a part of my childhood.
But I’ve had more exposure this last year as I’ve figured out that they are the perfect blank canvas for making lots and lots of fun variations – which, by the way, is Reason 2: versatility. You can take them in a million different directions.
Reason 3. They’re EASY. You can spruce up traditional Rice Krispie Treats in a million and one creative ways, and they almost always stay super simple, quick, fool-proof, and EASY. Anyone can make them, anyone can make them fast, and you don’t invest a ton of time.
Do you need more convincing? I’m sure not. You probably grew up with Rice Krispie Treats and have loved them all your life! Or if you’re like me, and you’re just exploring these delectable treats more and more, there’s an RKT ‘playlist’ for you down below to check out besides these Pumpkin Spice Latte Rice Krispie Treats! I have some other really awesome versions. 🙂
