Tools for making Caramel Rice Krispie Treats:
- 3 tablespoons salted butter
- 4 cups miniature marshmallows
- 6 cups of gluten free Rice Krispies cereal
- 14 pieces of individually wrapped caramel
- Cooking Spray
In a medium sauce pan melt butter and caramel pieces over medium heat for 3 minutes stirring with a wooden spoon. Add marshmallows. Continue to stir until marshmallows and caramel are melted down and sticky like glue. A wooden spoon is pretty important here because the mixture will stick even worse to other surfaces.
Remove from heat and stir in Rice Krispie treats. Blend well.
Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray and pour in Rice Krispie mixture. Place a large piece of wax paper over top of the mixture and press down with your hands to evenly push it all into the pan.
Allow to cool for 20 minutes.
