Salted Caramel and Chocolate Rice Krispies Treats

Salted Caramel and Chocolate Rice Krispies Treats

Salted caramel and chocolate makes these rice krispies extra fun and extremely addicting!

On our way to the library last week, I saw something that, not only surprised me, but, really annoyed me. Now, it’s May, right?  Then, why does my neighbor still have a plastic Santa Claus on their front lawn?!

Why in the world is wrong with these people? Does this bother anybody else or I am just a complete freak of nature?

May. 80 degrees. Santa.  Grrr..

What does this have to do with the treats? Absolutely nothing. I just needed to share my petty frustrations with somebody.

My husband doesn’t really listen to them anymore. 🤷

OK, crispy treats!

Is there anything easier?  You could just plain ole’ rice krispies, which are awesome. But, add some caramel and chocolate?  You’ve got some serious fabulousness going on

Oh, and the salt on top? As I told you guys just a few weeks ago, best topping ever for sweets.

These Salted Caramel and Chocolate Rice Krispies Treats are great no-bake dessert for the season!
