An Addiction

Sorry for the fuzziness, an iPhone snapshot.

My name is Erin, and I have an addiction…  Hershey’s Pumpkin Spice Kisses.  From the first bite I was hooked.  They’re soft & creamy, with the perfect amount of pumpkin spice.  I love autumn.  I love the temperature, the colors, the smells, the feeling.  Everything about autumn I love.  Football season, “back to school”,  festivals… I love it all.  I love all things pumpkin.  Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread (to be baked soon), pumpkin spice lattes, and now, my newest discovery, these little bits of heaven wrapped in foil.  From the moment I purchased them I knew I wanted to make a special treat with them.  I have something planned, but I won’t be making it until right before Halloween.  I knew there had to be something else I could make.  Friday night I decided to use up the Rice Krispies I had and make some Rice Krispie treats.

I like to dress them up, with peanut butter, or candy, or anything I feel like adding.  The boy is a bit of a purist, and prefers them in their classic form.  So I made a half batch of regular Rice Krispies.  The second batch I “spiced” up (no pun intended).  After the marshmallows melted I added in 9 Pumpkin Spice Kisses, removed from heat, and stirred until they were melted.  Then I added the Rice Krispies like usual.  It was the perfect twist I must say!
If you like pumpkin spice ANYTHING definitely purchase some of these kisses, and make these Rice Krispies as well!

Can you tell which are Pumpkin Spice & which are regular???

    I didn't know they made them either! I don't know whether to kiss you or shake my finger at you for telling me. I was doing 2 pumpkin dishes a week in Ocober but was running out of steam for this week. This might have just pushed mt to finish this silly challenge I made for myself. I love your blog by the way. Thanks for all the yummy dish ideas.
