Instructions

To prepare the streusel

  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
  3. Melt butter in microwave for 30 seconds.
  4. Pour melted butter over dry ingredients and use a pastry cutter or fork to combine dry ingredients into butter. Mixture will be clumpy.
  5. Line a 9×9” pan with tin foil. Press into the bottom of a 9×9” pan. Bake streusel for 20 minutes at 350°. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

To Prepare the Apple Pie Filling

  1. Slice apples into small pieces and squeeze a lemon over top to coat it in juice.
  2. Add cinnamon, apple pie spice, brown sugar and flour over top of apples. Stir to mix ingredients.
  3. Heat apples on the stove over medium heat for 10-15 minutes until soft. Stir occasionally. Set aside and allow to cool.
  4. Pour apples over streusel and cool for at least 30 minutes.

To Prepare the Rice Krispie Treats

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat until butter starts to turn brown and let of a slight aroma.
  2. Pour marshmallows in saucepan and stir until melted.
  3. Add Rice Krispie cereal to saucepan and stir to combine.
  4. Pour Rice Krispie mixture over apples and streusel. Use a piece of wax paper to spread and firmly pack down the Rice Krispie treats.
  5. It is best to allow this to set for a couple of hours, but it can be served immediately.

Notes

I used a 9×9″ Pan. Lining the pan with tin foil will help to remove them easily and slice apart.

Make sure to firmly pack the Rice Krispies Treats onto the streusel mixture.

Store in a airtight container for up to 3 days.
