Caramel and Chocolate Covered Rice Crispy Treats

I think rice crispy treats are the mac daddy of desserts. I love them! I always have. But I don’t like the store bought rice crispy treats. They taste weird. So when my friend Heather sent me a picture of a rice crispy treat dipped in caramel and then milk chocolate (with the subject “you have to make these”) I had to make them. Let me rephrase that… I had to make them! I mean seriously. The perfect dessert then dipped in awesome and then dipped again in awesome. I’m all over it! (Thank you Heather!!!)

Super easy to make!

I made a pan of rice crispy treats.

* 3 Tbls. of melted butter
* 1 bag of mini marshmallows
* 6 cups of rice crispies

Then I cut them into squares.

I melted caramels in the microwave with a tiny amount of milk. Then dipped the treats in the caramel so the tops were completely covered.

Final step – melt milk chocolate chips in the microwave and then dip the caramel layer in the chocolate.
I know, right?! Pure heaven.

Here’s one cut open. Can you see the caramel? Oh, it’s tasty!!!

I made these for our company who are coming into town on Saturday but I seriously doubt I, I mean my kids, won’t eat them all before then.
