Anyway, like I said, this is a weekend when lots of family comes to town. And that means lots of food and of course, treats are needed ☺. The last couple of years I have been asked to bring these:
Caramel Krispie Bars
Warning, they are rich and full of ooey, gooey, yumminess.
1 Cup Butter or Margarine
1 bag (about 14 oz) caramels (unwrapped)
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
16 oz bag mini marshmallows
9 cups Rice Krispies
1. Using a microwave, heat 1/2 cup butter, the caramels and sweetened condensed milk on low until melted. Stirring every few minutes.
2. In a large sauce pan on the stove, heat the remaining 1/2 cup butter and marshmallows until melted (do not over cook!) stir frequently. Once melted, remove from heat, stir in cereal and mix well.
3. Spray a 9x13" pan with non-stick spray. Pat 1/2 of cereal/marshmallow mixture in bottom of pan. Pour the caramel mixture on top and spread evenly. Then place the rest of the cereal/marshmallow mixture on top. Spread out and smooth evenly.
4. Chill until cool.
