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…

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.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

  1. YUM, RK treats and caramel are my sons 2 favorite things…. mine too! I just made them and I think the waiting 2 hours to set up is going to be the hardest…. I want to eat them NOW, they look scrumptious! I love your blog… thanks for sharing…

    These are just like the ones from a favorite restaurant in Fort Madison, Iowa called The Ivy. They have the yummiest food, but their desserts are super yummy!! I bought their cookbook and this recipe is in it, thank goodness, cause once you try them, you want them again!!

    1. shelly

      Yes! The reader who sent me the recipe told me that she had them at a place called The Ivy Bake Shoppe… I included that in the bottom of the recipe 🙂
      I have to get there one day!!

  3. I’m the same. I hate awkward silence. haaattteee it. And I will do anything to make it stop. YOu don’t have to ask me twice to make these though…these I’ll agree to right from the get-go.

  4. Joni

    Will definitely try these – they look delicious!!!

    Another twist on this that is fun and delicious, but more time consuming, is to make the caramel mixture (minus the butter), dip a large marshmallow in the caramel and then roll the marshmallow in Rice Krispies. The kids love them!

    Love your blog!

  5. These look incredible! I will make a pan of these when the husband is at work and the child at school, then hide the pan so I don’t have the guilt of not sharing! I can’t wait to make these!

  6. Ah yes, the awkward silence. Revel in it Shelly. Silence is your FRIEND.

    And these treats are my friend. Maybe you should bring them along on outings? Stuff them in your mouth when you feel like you need to say unnecessary words 😉

    I used to come here for the recipes, which of course I still do because every single one is PHENOMENAL, but your blog posts keep me coming back. You are hilarious! Has anyone given you a book deal yet? You need a cookbook and a memoir! I would buy both hahah

    Just to point out, you have the Rice Krispies divided into 4, 4, and 2 cups, and the marshmallows in half. They should be the other way around, according to the instructions.

    My sister made a similar recipe for a family reunion a few years ago. She made another pan the next day because the first one was devoured. I can attest to how yummy these are.

        You’re welcome–it was pretty clear that it was just a mix-up, but I know that sometimes I just skim a recipe and *think* I know how to make it, and then have a problem because I didn’t read it completely. 🙂

        I had planned to make RK bars today, but when melting my marshmallows and butter, rather than turn into a smooth, creamy pool, it morphed into a gelatinous mass that looked kind of like chewed gum. My marshmallows weren’t stale, so I don’t know what happened. Since I had the RK in the bowl already, I just made Scotcheroo bars instead. I was annoyed that I had to dump my marshmallow/butter mess in the garbage, but suppose that it could have been worse–I could have had to dump the bowl, too!
