World's Most Delicious Easy TREAT

My sister Deena is famous for making 50 cookie trays every year, with at least that many varieties of cookies. She knocks herself out -- baking into the wee hours of the morning.

But, with TWO THANKSGIVING babies this year, she had to scale down... When she asked her family to pick one or two favorite cookies -- imagine her surprise when many of us said, in unison "the marshmallow caramel crispy things".

During Mary's visit, we made a double batch of these delicious treats...this is a picture of my people -- before we actually got to the cooking portion of the evening.

You will need:

2 bags of marshmallows
1 box of Rice Krispie cereal

To make the caramel:
2 bags of Kraft Caramels (unwrap them)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of butter
______Deena microwaves the caramel mixture -- but you could also melt it in a double boiler.

Working fast, one at a time, roll the marshmallows -- first in the caramel, then in Rice Krispies. (if the caramel gets too hard, just reheat it..)

WE ARE TALKING SOME serious heaven here, folks!! And it's a fun treat to make with kids, too. They're best after they set up for an hour or so...Store in an open container (otherwise, the cereal gets soft).

  1. That must be tricky wrapping a marshmallow in hot melted Carmel! Sounds yummy. The kids love hot chocolate, but they will want more marshmallows for their breakfast.
