Caramel Turtle Rice Krispie Bars

I am sure that I found this recipe online but revisiting the page I can’t seem to find them anymore.

  • 6 cups Rice Krispies
  • 40 large marshmallows
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup butter (we did not use that much, more like a couple of tablespoons)
  • 3/4 pounds individual caramels
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans (we used walnuts)

1. In large saucepan over low heat, melt butter. Add marshmallows; stir until melted and well blended. Remove from heat.

2. Stir in vanilla. Add cereal, stirring until coated.

3. Using lightly buttered spatula, press into buttered 3.5L (13 x 9″) pan. Cool.

4. On top of a double boiler, melt the caramels along with water and vanilla. Reserve a small amount and spread the rest over the prepared Rice Krispies. Place whole pan in the fridge for 5 min or until caramel sets.

5. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate (in microwave or on top of a double boiler), stirring until smooth. Spread chocolate evenly over caramel layer. Top with walnuts and drizzle remaining caramel on top. Refrigerate again until chocolate has set.

Turtle Rice Krispies

Verdict: These were delicious. Rice Krispies squares are also a nice, nostalgic dessert. Adding caramel and chocolate just made it better and gooey-er.
