A Little Pumpkin Fun
Does anyone remember those little chocolate rice crispy patties that were shaped like little cookies. They were sold sometime in the mid-90’s? For the life of me, I can’t remember what they were called–and I’ve definitely already hit up Google’s search engine for the past 45 minutes and still, there’s nothing coming up that’s even close to those treats.
Well I remember being a little girl and visiting one of my aunt’s houses down in South Florida. She had stashes of them in her closet that she secretly kept hidden from all the crazy children like me who visited and she didn’t trust alone with them. Well if she’s reading this, now she knows that she didn’t eat them all in some nighttime drunken episode and blackout the memory. No, It was me! I would sneak in there and tear through those packages! *cue evil laughter* Unfortunately no matter how obsessed I was with those patties, I still can’t remember the name of them 🙁
Well those treats were what half-inspired these bars. That and October’s very own: Pumpkin.
I’m over pumpkin pies and pumpkin lattes for now. I wanted something different. Something a little more original, and so I made these pumpkin bars, and the outer crust just makes me weak yall! It’s so crunchy and yummy, I just can’t. I had to stash them away deep in the freezer so I wouldn’t eat them all, and yes, they stay just fine back there until I’m ready for them again 🙂
