What is it about Rice Krispie Treats that never cease to amaze or disappoint me? Is it the simplicity to their form? The very few ingredients needed to make them? Or the countless ways to change them up? Whatever the reason may be I have been a loyal fan for years and still find pleasure in eating (and making) these deliciously sticky treats. This time around I kept them pretty simple by using this recipe and adding a hint of pink food dye… I’m telling you, there will never be a day where there’s too much pink in my life!
I’ve been a fan of crumb cake since I was a little girl. I remember everyday that my dad would drive me to school we would stop at our neighborhood favorite for a quick bite; I always ate the sweet crumb top off the cake and leave the rest behind… some things never change ! I was a bit skeptical to try this recipe because I didn’t want to ruin my love of crumb cake by messing it up. It turned out to be really easy and pretty delicious, though I have to admit there is something so comforting in getting a piece from your favorite coffee shop.
One of my favorite things about Fall is all of the pumpkin flavored goodies that come with it. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin muffins or pumpkin soup, pretty much anything that has the flavor is good in my book! There’s something very welcoming to spice infused scents and once I put this loaf in the oven to bake there was nothing I wanted to do more than cuddle up on the couch. For how simple this recipe was I was surprised at how delicious it turned out; it proves my point once again that sometimes simplicity is the best way to go.
