Tempt My Tummy - Caramel Rice Crispy Treats

Life As Mom is having a recipe swap Picnic version this perfect!

As we approach summer I break out my grill-out/picnic treat recipes. Caramel is one of my favorites.....and so are rice crispy bars. Bonus!

Caramel Filled Rice Krispie Treats

8-9 Cups Rice Krispies
6 Tbsp butter
16 oz Marshmallows
50 Caramels (unwrapping them is a good job for the kids)
1/2 can Sweetened Condensed Milk (use the other half for a half batch of THESE)
1/2 cup butter

Melt 6 Tbsp butter and marshmallows together. Stir in rice krispies. Divide mixture evenly between two buttered pans.

Melt caramels, sweetened condensed milk and 1/2 cup butter together and spread over one pan of rice krispies. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Remove the second pan of rice krispies treats and place on top of the caramel layer.
If you want to make them a little more decadent you can try this too (not recommended for picnics)...Chocolate Ganache

2 Tbsp Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Tbsp Butter
1/2 Cup (2 oz) chopped semisweet chocolate or chocolate chips
1/2 tsp Vanilla

Heat whipping cream and butter in small sauce pan over medium heat until butter melts and mixture boils, stirring frequently with wooden spoon. Remove saucepan from heat. Stir in chocolate and vanilla until mixture is smooth, returning to heat for 20-30 second intervals as needed to melt chocolate. Pour over the top of finished krispie treats, let cool.


  1. That sounds delicious!! My family loves rice krispies treats I will have to give these a try.

  2. OK, you're definitely tempting me with this one. Sounds heavenly!! I'll have to "do it for the kids". ;)

  3. YUM YUM! Lu would love to sit and unwrap the carmels!

  4. YUM! I will definitely have to try these sometime. Around Christmas time, I make caramel rice krispie marshmallow thingies, but they are a little different. The marshmallow is in the center, and the caramel/rice krispie mixture is on the outside. Thanks for the new idea!

  5. Oh My! Those sound great. Wish I could make these, but one of my FishBoys has braces. Bummer!

  6. Amazing! Thanks for sharing the recipe
