Orange Dreamsicle Krispies


It's no secret that Fall is my favorite season ever.  Fall scented candles, pumpkin spice coffee creamer, pumpkins, football, football food, boots, sweaters, Halloween, Thanksgiving.  The list just goes on and on.  What's not to love about fall?  It inspires me, and when the lazy days of summer end I go into major DIY, cooking, crafty Kelsey mode.

So here is recipe #1 of about 1000 to come this fall!   

ORANGE DREAMSICLE KRISPIES
Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large pan over low heat.
Add 1 (10oz) package miniature marshmallows, stirring until melted.
Remove from heat.
Stir in 1 1/2 tbsp. Vanilla Extract.
Add 1/2 c. orange cake mix, blending well.

Stir in 4-5 cups rice krispies and 1 (12oz) package of white chocolate morsels until well coated.

Spread mixture into a lightly greased 9x13 pan.
Cool completely before cutting or icing.

If these aren't sweet enough and you think you want some frosting on top...
Stir together 3 cups of powdered sugar, 6 tbsp. softened butter, 5 tbsp. orange juice, 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract , 1/4 tsp. orange extract, and desired amount of orange or peach food coloring. 

Next time, I won't bother with the frosting because these little babies are plenty sweet without it...but the choice is yours! :)

Happy 'almost' Fall y'all!
