Sweet and rich, these Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats give the classic ones a good swift kick in the rear!
1. With softened butter, oil, or cooking spray, grease a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan. Set the pan aside. Heat butter in a large pot over medium-high. Cook the butter until slightly golden-brown, about 5 minutes. “Browning” the butter will deepen the flavor and kick it up just a notch.
2. Into the browned butter add marshmallows, caramel pieces and salt. Turn the heat to low. Stir constantly until everything is melted and combined.
3. Turn off the heat and add the Rice Krispies cereal. Gently fold the cereal into the marshmallow mixture until combined. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and spread it around evenly with your fingers. It helps if your fingers are lightly greased. Allow this to cool before putting the chocolate on top.
4. Put the chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl. Melt the chocolate at 30 second intervals in the microwave stirring after each heating, and continuing for additional 30 second increments only until melted.
5. Pour the melted chocolate on top of the cooled Rice Krispie treats. Spread it on evenly with a spatula. Allow the chocolate to cool and harden completely before cutting. Depending on the humidity in the air this could be as fast as 30 minutes or as slow as 2 hours. Try to refrain from putting it into the fridge.
6. Once the chocolate has set, slice into squares. The size is up to you. Enjoy!
To me, nothing beats an old-fashioned red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting. Well, unless it’s a slice of cake of the same! Moist, deep in flavors, slightly sweet and topped with an incredible frosting!
