Well, I had to find something to do with the leftover Pumpkin Spice Oreos I had from last week's Krispie Pumpkin Spice Oreo Tartlets, so I made some truffles. I love Oreo truffles. They are so easy to make and with all the different Oreos that keep coming out, there is a flavor for everyone's liking. And you can shape the dough in a variety of ways. I used a pumpkin ice cube tray to shape these pumpkin truffles.
Sometimes you have to have a little fun with your desserts. These Krispie Pumpkin Spice Oreo Tartlets are a mash-up of Rice Krispie Treats and Pumpkin Spice Oreo Truffle filling with a little frosting thrown in. Did I get your interest yet? I hope so, because these are really easy to make and taste fabulous. Each layer is filled with a variety of flavors and textures that will awaken your taste buds and make them cry out for more of these crunchy, chewy, sweet and spicy little bites of fall heaven.
I can't believe it's almost Halloween. Time is flying by. We finally got around to putting up our spooky decorations for the kids and decorating our pumpkins. Hopefully, they will have as much fun as last year when the big day arrives. In the meantime, we are enjoying these Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cookies. They are chock full of Pumpkin Spice M&Ms, pumpkin puree, pretzels, and Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa. They are decadently good.
While the weather down south is a bit warmer, we have had a few chilly mornings and evenings. So I know that fall is here. What better way to celebrate than with some Caramel Apple Oreo Truffles. They have a crunchy outer layer of caramel apple candy coating, drizzled with caramel and inside is a soft, chewy filling made of Caramel Apple Oreos and cream cheese. A simple, no bake treat that you can bring to any fall party. I brought them to a neighborhood shrimp boil last weekend and they disappeared real fast. The kids and the adults loved them.
OK, now I am ready for fall. I opened up my first can of pumpkin puree today and made these Maple Pumpkin Banana Muffins. They are filled with all sorts of goodness and they are healthy. I used pure maple syrup instead of sugar, replaced some of the flour with whole wheat flour and used coconut oil. I am trying to be a good mom and send healthy treats to school, so I have been baking muffins and freezing them to have on hand. These ones may not last until I freeze them though. Even my picky eating son loved them. Of course he does love maple syrup and bananas, so that helps. Healthy treats don't have to lack flavor.
