Anytime I have something in my cupboard taking up space, I always find something to make. I had both leftover marshmallows and caramels so I went out and bought my favorite cereal and decided to make Marshmallow Caramel Rice Krispie Treats. You have the softness of the marshmallow, the sweetness from the caramel and the crispiness from the cereal. It’s just a great combo. Did I mention they are bite-sized?! Of course, they are! If you check out my other recipes, I have a lot of bite-sized recipes.
Marshmallow Caramel Rice Krispie Treats are quick, easy and painless to make. You only need 5 ingredients to make these treats and they are ready to eat in under 40 minutes!
In a medium sauce pan, over medium heat combine the caramels, butter and heavy cream. Stir constantly until the caramels are melted with a nice creamy texture.
Insert a toothpick into the marshmallow, dip and coat the marshmallow in the caramel mixture. Tap off the excess sauce. Sprinkle Rice Krispies all over the dipped marshmallow. Transfer to baking sheet, make sure you cover the baking sheet with parchment paper. Let rest for 30 minutes.
You will probably have left over caramel sauce at the end of making these. It all depends on how many marshmallows you have. I made 36 and had sauce left over so I made Caramel Popcorn with Almonds.
- 1 11 oz bag wrapped caramels
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 bag large marshmallows (36 marshmallows)
- 4 cups Rice Krispies cereal
In a medium saucepan place the caramels, heavy cream and butter. Over medium heat stir constantly until creamy.
Using a toothpick dip each marshmallow into the caramel mixture. Tap off the excess.
Pour the Rice Krispies in a medium size bowl and sprinkle the Rice Krispies over the caramel marshmallow until it's covered.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the covered marshmallow on the baking sheet. Remove the toothpick if desired.
Let them rest for 30 minutes.
