Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Squares

Thick and chewy salted caramel rice krispies. Seriously, you guys are going to love these. They’re easy, and oh-so good. This recipe is just the same as my Peanut Butter Rice Krispies, the Mars Bar Rice Krispies, and Nutella Rice Krispies. Just take out the peanut butter, nutella and mars bar, and add part of your caramel mixture. Yes, there is caramel on the inside and on top! Plus that sprinkle of sea salt on top give it that perfect salty-sweet taste. These extra gooey rice krispies are made in 2 pans, but you can always just use one and have thicker squares. Or ditch the extra marshmallows, and 2 cups of rice krispies and voila, the perfect amount for just a 9×13 pan! These are a perfect treat for those first few days of school for the kids, or even for yourself! After you try these, you won’t want to have the classic rice krispies again!
