I had a sweet tooth the other day which should come as no surprise to anyone that knows me. I pretty much have a sweet tooth 24/7.
So to satisfy that sweet tooth I made these Rice Krispie treats I’d seen over at Crumbs and Chaos. They were good, really good, additively good. I only made half a batch because I didn’t have enough marshmallows which is probably a good thing, otherwise I would have been in trouble. I’m not sure who liked them more, me or my boys.
If you’ve got a hankering for something gooey, sweet/salty, chocolaty and caramely, (is that even a word?), then you need to make these.
- 5 Tablespoons SALTED BUTTER (use real butter)
- 9 cups mini marshmallows
- 4 1/2 cups Rice Krispie cereal
- 4 1/2 cups Cocoa Krispie Cereal
- 1 8 oz. bag Rolo MINIS , cut in half
- 1/4 cup bottles caramel sauce (I used Mrs. Richardsons)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Your kitchen salt shaker for sprinkling (I used kosher salt)
Butter a 9x13 pan.
In a large microwave safe bowl (or a saucepan for the stove), melt butter. Add marshmallows to bowl, heat at 45 second intervals, stirring in between until melted and smooth.
Meanwhile, mix together cereals in a large bowl.
Add caramel sauce and 1/4 teaspoon of salt to melted marshmallows, stir well to combine. Pour over cereal and mix well. Add in halved Rolo candies and stir again.
Transfer this mixture to prepared pan. Take a turner spatula and butter the back of the flat side well. Use it to press the bars firmly into the pan. Take a salt shaker and lightly salt the top of the bars. Set aside to cool and set up before cutting into bars.
