Caramel Krispy Treats
I found this recipe on my friend, Shana's, blog. It is so, so delicious. And so, so bad for you. These do not stick together as much as regular Rice Krispy Treats, but who gives a good crap? They taste so awesome you won't care. Also, be careful when pouring these babies into your dish - this barely fits into my glass 9x13 and that is after I mush it down with the wooden spoon:
CARAMEL KRISPY TREATS
1 box (18 oz) Rice Krispies
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 3/4 cup light corn syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
In a large pot melt butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and corn syrup. Bring to a boil; boil for 3 minutes.
Remove from heat. Stir in sweetened condensed milk. Return to heat. Boil for 3 more minutes. Stir in Rice Krispies if your pot is big enough; otherwise pour caramel over Rice Krispies in a large bowl, and stir to coat. Pour into greased 9x13 (or larger) baking dish. Let cool and cut into squares.
I think I might try cutting these into small squares and then coating them in chocolate. Doesn't that sound sinful?
Update: I made these and they are delicious. I melt one part semi-sweet and one part milk chocolate chips and then dip. Place on wax paper-lined baking sheet until chocolate solidifies. You can speed this process by placing them in the fridge.
