A few weeks ago I had a fall themed party at school for my students. My instructional assistant and I love to make desserts to go around a theme and a fall theme sounded like fun. I wanted to make something that I knew the kids loved, but I wanted to put a spin on it.
I decided on classic Rice Krispies treats. Who doesn’t like the gooey concoction? To jazz it it up and make it more fall themed I added in a bag of autumn mix candy corn. When the treats had cooled you could see that something was in them but it wasn’t too clear what it was.
The kids loved biting into them and finding a pumpkin or a piece of candy corn. They thought it was fun and I did too! These are a great treat that the kids could help with too.
