Are you invited to a Halloween party that you need to bring a treat to? And you forgot about said party and said treat? I’m not talking about me, I’m asking for a friend…
Anyways, I’ve got you covered.
Rice Krispie Treats to the rescue!
If you’ve been reading my blog for the 7+ years I’ve been writing, you probably recall that I used to eat these unfailingly in college which led to my freshman
15 25. Some might say it was the Sonic onion rings, but I beg to differ.
ANYWAYS, I’ve since reigned in my old habits and rarely make rice krispie treats because when I do make them, I eat them all. Moderation is not my strong point. Ahem.
But clearly I’m desperate for super simple no-bake recipes. So here we are.
This recipe is just the original rice krispie treats recipe found on the back of the box that I topped with melted caramel and salt. It takes 15-20 minutes start to finish and everyone will go nuts for these. #winning
Be sure to get the printable recipe below! Have a wonderful Halloween 🙂
Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Treats
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 4 cups mini marshmallows
- 6 cups rice krispies cereal
- 20 caramels unwrapped
- 1 1/2 tablespoons heavy cream
- coarse salt
In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
Add rice krispie cereal. Stir until well coated. Using buttered fingers, spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Set aside. In a small bowl, microwave caramels and cream until thoroughly melted and smooth. Cut into squares and drizzle with caramel and sprinkle with salt.
Best if served the same day.
