Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Treats Recipe

This is a family-friendly recipe that only takes a couple of minutes to make and a handful of ingredients. It’s also nearly fail-proof! Here’s what you need to make the perfect Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Treats.

  • Rice Krispies – crunchy puffy cereal.
  • Marshmallows – what sweetens this recipe and helps everything stick together.
  • Butter – salted or unsalted. I’d recommend salted to help balance out the sweetness. You can also brown your butter for a nutty taste.
  • Caramels – these are those candy soft caramels you can find in the snack section of your grocery store.
  • Heavy Cream – this helps the caramel become creamy and a consistency that is perfect for drizzling.
  • Coarse Salt – sprinkled on top for the balance to all of the sweet. Coarse salt looks better and there is less of a chance of overloading your bars with salt.

    Yay for quick and easy (and no-bake!) treats! I’ve got a moderation problem with brownies. Maybe I could switch to these? Ha ha 😉

    I have a new love for all things salted caramel and am dying to try these! I was hesitant on trying salted caramel because I like my sweet treats sweet but one bite and I was hooked! I am afraid to make these in fear that I will eat the whole pan!
