Caramel and sea salt take good old Rice Krispie bars from good to great. Plus, who doesn't love a treat on a stick?
Things You'll Need
Caramel candies, 11-ounce package
2 tablespoons cream or milk
Marshmallows, 10-ounce package
3 tablespoons butter
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
Unwrap the caramel candies and place in a small saucepan.
Add 2 tablespoons of cream or milk and cook over low heat, stirring frequently until all the candies are melted and the caramel is smooth. Set aside.
Melt 3 tablespoons of butter together with 10 ounces of marshmallows. Cook over medium heat until smooth, stirring frequently.
Add 6 cups of Rice Krispies cereal and stir to combine.
Pour caramel sauce over Krispies mixture, reserving about 1/4 cup. Stir gently to distribute the caramel sauce throughout the Krispies without mixing it in completely.
Pour Krispies mixture into a buttered 9 x 13-inch pan and press lightly. Allow to cool, then use a biscuit cutter or cookie cutter to cut circles.
To avoid waste, warm the Krispie scraps in the microwave and press them together. Cut more circles from the reformed scraps.
Press a lollipop stick into each Krispie circle.
Place the Krispie pops on a cooling rack set over a sheet of parchment paper. Drizzle caramel sauce over each pop.
Sprinkle sea salt onto the warm caramel sauce.
Cool to room temperature and serve.
