Rice Krispie Treats With Chocolate And Salted Caramel! November 26, 2012

I love, love ,love rice krispie treats!  So much so, a couple of years ago my daughter made me a birthday cake of rice krispie treats – 3 layers tall – it was awesome!!!!  Well, I was pretty psyched when I found this recipe that was gluten free and it was made with rice krispie treats – wahoo.  I made these for our Friday dinner and the 13 x 9 pan was gone before I could blink.  Huge hit by young and old alike.  Enjoy!!!

Rice Krispie Treats With Chocolate and Sea Salt Caramel

6 oz of dark chocolate chips

1/2 cup chopped pecans or almonds

1 pkg. of caramels

2-4 Tlb. of no fat coffee creamer (I used vanilla)

Sea Salt

Melt the chocolate chips over low heat or in the micro wave and keep warm.

Heat the caramels and the creamer in a small saucepan on low heat until the caramels are melted and smooth stirring occasionally.  When melted, add a few pinches of sea salt to taste

As the chocolate is melting and the caramels are melting make a 13 x 9 pan of rice krispies, making sure the rice krispies are gluten free.  It’s important the rice krispies are warm when you pour on the other toppings.

When the rice kirspies are in the pan, pour the melted chocolate over the top, using a spatula or the back of a spoon to smooth out.  Quickly sprinkle the chopped nuts over the top of the melted chocolate.  Let rest about 2-3 minutes or until just starting to set.  Quickly pour warmed caramel over the top of the chocolate. (I sprinkled a bit more sea salt over the top of the caramel

Cool the bars in the frig or in a cool place until set.  Cut into bars and and enjoy!
