If I could give this recipe 6 stars I would. These are awesome. Such a delicious twist on the plain old krispie treats! If you use a 13x9 pan as suggested in the recipe it will fill the entire pan and make big tall krispie treats but if you want them a little smaller divide it up into 2 13x9 pans. I ended up cutting tall ones in half to serve...but either way they are wonderful. Thanks MrsFisher!! Read More

I found these to be heavy and for the extra calories and ingredients just not worth it. I'll stick to the original. Read More

Super yummy of course with all the butter brown sugar cream of course it's amazing. My question is with the photo. Where did the thick top layer come from? Is it extra sauce? I'm guessing you stir in 1/2 the sauce then use other 1/2 for the topping. We popped some popcorn and used the extra sauce for that. Read More

Almost too delicious! Only variation is I used a can of sweetened condensed milk that I cooked in crockpot first for the caramel sauce. Then added marshmallows and Rice Krispies! Read More

I was making a second batch before the first one had cooled. My daughter needed a snack for a class at school. I came across this recipe and after reading the rave reviews decided to try it out. AMAZING!!! This is my first review as well. It is that good and I will definitely make this again! Read More

Believe the reviews on this one! I couldn't find flaked sea salt so used fine Pink Himalayan sea salt. I wasn't sure if I needed to adjust amounts so added 1/2 teaspoon at a time and tasted after each addition. I ended up using the full 2 teaspoons and it was perfect. I used a 13x9 pan and also a 9x9 to get the height that I thought was good. My finished bars were a titch over an inch high. Everyone asked for the recipe on this one. They still taste like Rice Krispie bars but subtly and wonderfully different. Great recipe!! Read More

Excellent! I couldn't find gluten free cereal but made anyway. You can easily use a 16oz box of cereal without getting too dry. We also made a batch using toasted coconut marshmallows and topped with toasted unsweetened coconut. We won't ever make them the old way from the cereal box recipe. We've made 6 batches for Christmas treats to give away. Read More

This recipe was fantastic the caramel sauce was really decadent. But it seemed like I had too much marshallow caramel sauce but not enough cereal 12 oz of rice krispies was not enough. Maybe I measured the cereal wrong? I dont know but it was still delicious and I will make them again. Read More

I never write reviews but I HAD to for this one. I've tried a few dessert recipes with a caramel sauce before and I've never had one turn out as good as this one! This recipe is amazing for the salted caramel sauce alone. The only change I made was to use cocoa krispies for a chocolate taste otherwise this recipe is perfect! Read More
