Yay! This is my first vlog ever. Here are the adventures from my food coma road trip, including a trip to a Jersey diner and the Borgata buffet. This is the reality of what happens during an (unusual) day of indulgence.
Leave a comment and let me know if you want me to do more vlogs!
LET’S BE FRIENDS!
This is not diet food (gasp!). This is nowhere near clean eats (appalling!). This is fun food, ya’ll. Pumpkin Pie Rice Krispie Treats is tiny indulgence because you’re gonna cut yourself a small square instead of a gigantic one. Right?
GATHER YOUR INGREDIENTS
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 10.5 ounce bag mini marshmallows
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 2-3 pinches each of nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon
- Brown butter in large pot until dark golden brown. Watch the pot carefully and be sure not to burn the butter.
- Remove from heat and add entire bag of marshmallows. Quickly stir as it melts.
- Add sea salt and pumpkin puree. Continue stirring.
- Add the Rice Krispies. Keep stirring.
- Add nutmeg, clove and cinnamon spices. Use a little of each at first, then taste. Add more, if necessary, until you achieve desired level of spice-flavors.
- Pour mixture into 8×8 pan or similar size, then press firmly with wax paper.
- Put in fridge for approximately 10 minutes to allow mixture to set.
Important Note: Due to the addition of the pumpkin puree, these treats will be slightly less crisp than traditional Rice Krispie Treats.
Greedy Baby loved these treats and absolutely enjoyed the twist of festive pumpkin spices. Now go make your own. ((burp))
Sorry, ya’ll. I’ve been overdoing it on this fitness stuff lately. It’s about time I showed you some hardcore proof that I’m still a greedy woman. My stomachs just luuurve those non-fasting days.
I ordered two slices of pie on a day I wasn’t fasting. Apple pie and also ‘da pumpkin, too. But I’m doing it wrong? Will order enlarged pieces next time.
Sidenote: On this same day of non-fasting I turned down pancakes, lemon cake, pizza with bacon topping, and barbecue chicken wangs. The pie slices were a small bit of indulgence compared to all the other greedy choices I could’ve gnawed on.
Food freedom is important but do it with no regrets. Don’t give up the foods you love! Just make sure your choices are worth it.
