Caramel Apple Rice Krispie Treats

Hey y’all!!  Fall is almost here!!!  It is my most favoritest season!!  The crisp air, the chilly nights, the pumpkins, the falling leaves, boots, sweaters, I love it all!!!

Of course this time of year everyone starts gearing up for pumpkin.  I love pumpkin too but sadly caramel apple gets overlooked though it is an amazing fall flavor I cannot get enough of.

Fall also means backs to school and I want to share with you some great and easy back to school snacks this month.

This week I am sharing my Caramel Apple Rice Krispie Treats.  Listen to me people, this is important!  These are the best darn rice krispie treats I have ever eaten, ever!!

Caramel Apple Rice Krispies

These are caramely and have just the right bite of apple and spice, these are perfect!

Did I mention they are super easy, like ready in no time easy.

The 3 main things that make these stand out are, browning the butter, the caramel marshmallows and the dried apples.

One quick note about the apples, I got mine in the canned fruit section where they keep the raisins.  While you can use regular dried apples I found a small bag of crisp dried apples with a little cinnamon flavor mixed in.  They were perfect in the treats!
