Can I just say "WOW"? Granted, I love caramel and chocolate, but you have to check these out!
First, as the name describes: NO BAKE. Just pat them into a pan and refrigerate.
Second, as the name also describes: SNICKERS & RICE KRISPIES. Okay, no complaining here...
Third, as the name doesn't tell you but the critical part of this yummy snack: WERTHER'S CHEWY CARAMELS. Drum roll, please...
These bars are off the hook! Is it okay for me to describe them in the language of my kids? I've decided it is because these really are the best snack I've made in a long time. So good, in fact, that I ate the entire pan of them myself (little by little, over the course of a few days, but yes, all by my lonesome). Maybe next time I'll share... Ha!
(Recipe adapted from Sugar Salt Magic)
Makes: 18 pieces
Active Time: 20 minutes
3 cups Rice Krispies
5 snickers bars (1.8oz each), roughly chopped
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 tablespoon honey
8.8oz chewy caramels (I prefer Werther's, but any wrapped chewy caramels will do) 1/4 cup heavy cream
1 cup milk chocolate, roughly chopped
Grease and line an 8x8 inch baking tin with baking paper. Place the Rice Krispies in a large bowl and set aside.
Set aside about 1/4 cup of Snickers pieces, then add the rest along with the butter and honey to a small saucepan. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly until melted and the only lumps are the peanuts.
Pour the mixture over the Rice Krispies, add the 1/4 cup of snickers pieces and mix well to combine. Tip it into your prepared tin. Press it down well all over to make a firm base. Place in the fridge while you make the caramel.
Heat the caramels and cream in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until melted and smooth. Pour it over the top of the Rice Krispy base and place it back in the fridge to set for at least 1 hour.
Place the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring really well between each. This should only take 1 minute. Be careful to not risk burning it.Pour it over the cold slice and let it set for 1-2 hours before slicing and serving. Best eaten straight from the fridge.
