    1. I hate refrigerating krispie treats, so I would actually just wrap them tight and keep them at room temp. They should be ok for up to 3 days.

  1. Karen Sillerud

    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.

  2. 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.

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

  4. 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!!

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

  6. 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.

    1. The first layer is half the krispies, the second layer is the other half. When you made the first layer you should have split the ingredients, as per the instructions and ingredients.

  7. 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…..

    1. Absolutely, the marshmallows don’t add much more to the recipe, except,well, more marshmallows! So if you’re not a huge fan, you can absolutely leave them out!
