Salted Caramel and Chocolate Rice Krispies Squares

Share

 

This is now my favorite way to eat Rice Krispies treats. They’re really incredibly good and the boys (except for one who claims not to like caramel) went wild for them. So did some of their friends. The addition of caramel, chocolate and salt pushed these treats over the top.

Truth be told, I thought the cookies were good, not excellent. Not terrible, but not the best things I’ve ever […]
