Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Treats

  • Author: Julie
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 16 bars 1x

Scale

Ingredients

  • 7 cups Rice Krispie cereal
  • 1/2 cup butter, salted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon flaky sea salt such as Maldon (or 1/4 teaspoon table salt), plus more for sprinkling
  • 12-ounce bag regular marshmallows

Instructions

  1. Prepare a 9 by 9 inch square baking dish by spraying with nonstick spray, or buttering well. Measure out 7 cups of cereal and set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium high heat.  Add brown sugar, heavy cream, and corn syrup and bring to a boil while stirring constantly.  Cook until the mixture thickens, or about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the salt, and remove from the heat.  Stir in the marshmallows until completely melted.
  4. Combine the cereal and the marshmallow mixture and stir together until completely combined.  Pour into the prepared baking dish and press to level.  I like to rub my hands with nonstick spray so the mixture doesn’t stick to them.  Sprinkle with additional flakey sea salt to taste.
  5. Allow the Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Treats to cool completely and then cut into 16 bars.  Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
