Caramel Rice Krispy Treats with Chocolate & Caramel Glaze
I love Rice Krispy Treats. Ever since I was a little kid I remember begging my mom to make these confectionary gems. Little did I know just how simple and easy they were to make.
I decided to make some Rice Krispy Treats that were extra special by adding some caramel to the mix and topping them with some more caramel and chocolate. They are a decadent and delicious treat that I am sure you and your family will love.
Caramel Rice Krispy Treats
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
- OR -
4 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 lb. CC Confectionary Madagascar Vanilla Caramel or other fine caramel, divided into 1/4 lb. pieces
6 cups Rice Krispies
3 oz. milk chocolate, chopped
1 tsp. half & half
1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Add half of the caramel and melt into the marshmallow mixture on low. (See the picture below for what your mixture will look like.) Remove from the heat.
Add Rice Krispies. Stir until well coated.
Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool.
In a microwave safe bowl combine caramel & half & half. Microwave in 30 second increments until melted. After each 30 seconds, remove caramel from microwave and stir. Drizzle over Rice Krispy Treats.
In another microwave safe bowl add chocolate. Microwave in 30 second increments until melted. After each 30 seconds, remove chocolate from microwave and stir. Drizzle over Rice Krispy Treats.
Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.
