Simple, but Fabulous.
I love this recipe because it is fast and incredibly delicious. I generally use Werther's chewy caramels. Sometimes I like to add salted nuts or toasted coconut. If you want to be fancy, you can cut the treats with cookie cutters, or mold them in an interesting pan/container.
Caramel Rice Krispie Treats
adapted from Trish Deseine's Caramel.
1 stick unsalted butter
125 g marshmallows
125 g caramel candies
7 cups crisp rice cereal
1. melt the butter and caramel in a heavy pot/saucepan over medium heat. When the mixture is mostly melted, add the marshmallows. Stir until the mixture is completely melted and smooth.
2. Put the rice crispies in a large bowl. Pour the caramel mixture over the cereal and stir until well combined. Pour this mixture into a 9x13 baking dish (but really, any size will do) and let cool completely before cutting into squares (or other shapes/robots.)
