Salted Caramel Rice Krispies Treats
Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Treats will satisfy your craving for something sweet and something salty! So easy to make, these snack bars of crisp rice with marshmallow topped with creamy caramel and coarse salt will be your new go-to dessert recipe.
- 4 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 11 ounce package Kraft caramels unwrapped
- 2 tablespoons milk
- coarse sea salt for sprinkling
Prepare a 9x13-inch glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
Place the butter and marshmallows in a large microwave safe bowl. Heat on high in the microwave for 1 minute and 15 seconds until the marshmallows are melted and puffed up; stir well until smooth.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the Rice Krispies and the marshmallow mixture; scoop into the prepared glass baking dish and press down evenly.
In a medium microwave safe bowl, combine the caramels and the milk. Microwave on high for 1 minute and 20 seconds. Stir well until completely smooth. If the caramel is not incorporating well into the milk, keep heating the mixture in the microwave in 10 second increments, stirring well between each heating until smooth.
Pour the melted caramel sauce over the Rice Krispies treats. Sprinkle the top with coarse sea salt; set aside for 15 minutes to set. Cut into 16 bars and serve.
