Baking and fall just go together. I love all things pumpkin and this recipe is not the exception. If you are looking for a fun, kid friendly recipe to enjoy on a fall day, these Brown Butter Pumpkin Spice Crispy Rice Treats are amazing!!
I was craving something sweet this last weekend and we made the most amazing crispy rice treats using Santé’s Pumpkin Spice Pecans. It took the baking to a whole new level and added so much flavor and fun! The pecans provide such rich flavor to the recipe that you don’t need to use many other spices or ingredients to take make something fabulous.
