Caramel Stuffed Krispie Bars | Cookies and CupsThese bars combine my 2 favorite food groups:  Rice Krispies and Sweetened Condensed Milk.

They are really easy too…you do everything in the microwave!

First melt some butter, sweetened condensed milk and caramels together…
Melted butter and caramel in a bowl with a spoonThen mix up half of the krispie treats. Starting with marshmallows and butter…
Mini marshmallows and a stick of butter in a glass mixing bowlThen the Krispies…

Give it at least an hour, but I recommend longer.
They’re actually best the next day, but again, just give it a little time.

Also, I will warn you…these are sweet. Like rahhhly sweet.
And totally delicious.

My mom actually pointed me to this recipe! I made them for football party and everyone LOVED them!!! They are just the right amount of sweet!!!

I made these a few days ago, and now everyone loves me and thinks I am a genius! They are A-MA-ZING (said like Penny from Happy Endings, because I just feel like you are the kind of girl who also loves that show). Thank you forever for this recipe!!!

sounds Delish! I have a jar of salted caramel sauce I’m dying to use, but after reading recipe and instructions, I don’t think it will set like the caramel sauce in this recipe. It will probably stay gooey and soft. Either way, I’m going to try this sometime. I’ll find something else to do with the sauce I have.

I also like to substitute the caramels with microwave fudge …
in step 5 you say “repeat the krispie layer (step 4)” do you mean krispie layer (step 1).

I have been making a similar recipe for years. Mine calls for a cup of chocolate chips over the Rice Krispies, then the marshmallows, then the caramel, and last the Rice Krispie top. Delicious and I am always asked for the recipe.

I make a similar recipe and was sooo excited when my local grocery store started carrying Kraft Caramel Bites on the baking aisle, little beads of caramel instead of the squares you have to unwrap! So much easier and they melt in a smoother manner. Same cost for the same amount. Definitely look for them.

You are an evil yet entirely wonderful person. Look at that layer of gooey goodness. ::weak in the knees::

Possibly the most delicious things I’ve ever tasted. When making them, I had the crazy idea to throw some chocolate chips into the caramel layer. I must say, one of the best ideas I’ve ever had. Even though I’ve never tried my hand at baking, I’m going to attempt some other recipes. They all look so good!!

Hi Shelly! I love this recipe, caramel is my favorite thing everrrr, and I wanted to stop by to let you know I featured it in my Sunday Sweeties Easter Links 🙂

I made these for a potluck at work…OMG! Everyone was freaking out and asking for the recipe. Delish!!!

Okay I’m new to baking/cooking thing….can you tell me what ingredients I need for the final layer? I followed it until the final layer of rice crispy and then got lost. I don’t understand the remaining ingredients. If you could post what exact measurements you used for the final layer, that would be soooooo helpful! Thank you.

Is it possible to leave the additional marshmallows out? I think I’d like it with just the rice crispy base, the caramel, and the rice crispy bar topping. Do the marshmallows make it easier to add the top layer?

I have to say, your blog is just KILLING me! I love it so…..
