Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Treats

Rice Krispie Treats are a childhood favorite. There is definitely ways to make a childhood favorite become an adult favorite! Jazzed Up Rice Krispie Treats are the best kind of treats!

 

I absolutely love rice krispie treats! No matter what form they are in! So when I was trying to pick a treat for my kids for their first day of school I began making rice krispies and then i just kept adding and kept creating and these delicious treats were born!

Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Treats

5 Tablespoons butter
10 ounces marshmallows
5 cups rice krispie cereal
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 10 ounce bag of caramels, unwrapped
1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
5 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
6 ounces milk chocolate chips
sea salt
 
 
 
 
Butter a 9 x13 baking dish. In a saucepan add 5 Tablespoons butter. Once the butter start to melt add the marshmallows. Stir continually until the marshmallows are completely melted and creamy. Then remove from heat. Add the vanilla and stir. In a bowl add the rice krispies then add the marshmallow mixture on top and mix very well. Then pour into the buttered baking dish. Press the rice krispies down and then set aside.
 
In a different saucepan add the sweetened condensed milk, 5 tablespoons butter and unwrapped caramels. Melt over medium heat until the butter is melted as well as the caramels. Once it is all melted remove from heat and pour directly over the rice krispies then spread evenly to cover it completely. Then sprinkle on some sea salt and set aside to cool for about 15 minutes.
 
Then in saucepan add 1/2 cup heavy cream. Once it barely begins to boil remove from heat. Pour the milk chocolate chips in a cereal bowl. Slowly mix cream and chocolate by adding the heated heavy cream a tablespoon at a time while stirring the chocolate chips. Add a little at a time until it is at the right consistency to be drizzled. Then let it cool for a few minutes and then drizzle on top of the caramel layer on the rice krispie treats. Then sprinkle with more sea salt!

  1. Okay, this looks so good I wanted to try. I got to the caramel stage and my caramel mixture is way too them. I’m pretty sure I followed the recipe closely.

    What could be wrong?

  2. What is the consistency of the caramel/sweetened condensed milk layer? Does it firm up or is it stretchy/chewy underneath the chocolate layer? Thanks.

    1. It’s not really under a chocolate “layer”, the chocolate is just a drizzle. But, to answer your question, it does firm up somewhat, but it is still sticky and stretchy. I will definitely make it the day before (instead of the same day, like I did this time), to give it more time to get firm.
      At any rate, it’s very good!

    In the paragraph where the sweetened condensed milk is added to the saucepan, you said to add 5 tablespoons butter and unwrapped caramels. Why shouldn’t the carmels be unwrapped? Leaving the wrapper on is wrong. You want us to eat the wtapper?

    It’s easy to prepare. You don’t need 1/2 cup of whipping cream and all the chocolate chips unless u want to cover it all instead of the drizzle . It’s still cooling I have not taste it . I’m sure it’s great .

    I made this and it is basically mushy Rice Krispie treats. Too much caramel and chocolate
    Before cutting, it looks delicious. After cutting you have to eat it with a spoon. Definitely needs some tweaking.

    Seriously 5 stars for flavor! They were so good! I gave 4 stars only because the recipe needs some adjustment. I think less sweetened condensed milk to caramel ratio, will try to cut down by a 1/4, also I would just melt chocolate in a double boiler and only use 3-4 ounces of chocolate as the mixture with the cream did not set and also makes way too much! Otherwise super delicious! Got eaten up by all the ladies at craft night!

    I have made these three times now and every time I hear “these are the best things I have ever eaten in my life”, not kidding. I’m just about to make two pans, one for a holiday gathering and the other as a gift for a couple that raved over them. I am however going to put parchment in my pan so I can remove the entire piece at once to make cutting easier.

  9. In the chocolate chip isle I found caramel chips. Couldn’t you just melt those and pour on rice krispies? Would be way easier.

    1. Personally, I wouldn’t chance it. I googled and found this:
      “The flavor is close but not quite identical and the texture is slightly different. The square caramels have a slightly better taste and definitely have the expected soft chewy stuck-in-your teeth texture. The caramel bits have a texture, that while chewy, is not stuck-in-your-teeth sticky, which I think I prefer.”
      Hope that helps!

    I followed the recipe as written, and I had no problem with the consistency of the Rice Krispie layer. Not sure why others had an issue. As a matter of fact, I even cut mine into very small portions, because it’s so sweet, and the little squares were perfect!
