Instructions

  • Spray a 9×13 glass pan with non-stick spray. Also spray a rubber scraper.
  • In a large bowl measure out marshmallows and butter. Microwave for about 1 minute 15 seconds, until marshmallows are puffing up.
  • Stir the Rice Krispie cereal into the marshmallow mixture. Once well mixed, transfer to the 9×13 pan and gently press in until the treats are as even as possible.
  • Once they’re cooling in the pan, pour the caramel bits into a microwave-safe dish and add the milk. Microwave for about 1 minute 20 seconds. Bits won’t necessarily look melted, but once you begin stirring them, they’ll run smooth. If they don’t, put back in the microwave for another 10 seconds.
  • Pour caramel over the Rice Krispie Treats and use your rubber scraper to smooth the caramel over the top until even.
  • Sprinkle on coarse sea salt and let cool completely.
  • Once cool, I like to take all the treats out and put the entire block on a cutting board. I slice them all at once, then return them back to the pan.
