If you ever wondered if there was a way to make Rice Krispy treats fancy and elegant then you’ve come to the right place. Rice Krispy Treats have always been one of my favorites treats both to eat and to make. Typical I go for the classic sweet and simple way of making them but this time I decided to do it a little differently, and they came out amazingly.
- 6 Cups Rice Cereal
- 8 Cups Mini Marshmallows
- 6 Tablespoons Butter
- Dark Chocolate(I used 2 of NibMor’s Original Dark Chocolate bar)
- Caramel( Meltable)
Grease a flat 9-13 pan.
In a large pot slowly melt the butter and the marshmallows on a medium heat stirring constantly.
Once the marshmallows are melted remove from heat and add the rice cereal, you will want to do this fairly quickly. Gently stir until the cereal is completely coated.
Now press the mixture into your prepared pan using a greased spoon or your hands( if you do use your hands make sure to grease them first).
Once the marshmallow mixture is evenly spread out, sprinkle with some remaining mini marshmallows and gently press them down so they stick. Set aside while you melt the chocolate and the caramel.
How you melt the chocolate and caramel is up to you, for the most part, I find that a Bain Marie works best.
I chopped up a few salted caramels and saved out a couple squares of chocolate for decoration and texture. I started by sprinkling the bits of caramel fairly evenly over the top and followed with the melted chocolate and caramel.
Let the toppings set for about twenty minutes before cutting into squares.
I absolutely love the texture of this bars, all the different toppings really shine through. I think I still prefer the classic, but these are great for adding a touch of class to a fun and yummy treat.
Thanks so much to NibMor for supplying the chocolate for this recipe, if you would like to see the other recipe I did with them you can find it(here).
