Caramel Butterscotch Rice Krispy Treat Bars

image

For some reason I really enjoy making rice krispy treats because they are so easy to make and the possibilities are literally endless I feel like! Butterscotch isn’t an ingredient that I cook/bake with too often but butterscotch chips sure sounded and looked delicious when I was at the grocery store as they were laying  right by all the yummy chocolate chips.. So I thought, why not give it a whirl and add them to my rice krispy treats?! And boy was I sure happy I did! I highly recommend cutting these delicious pieces of heaven into bite sized pieces because they are way too good! Also, feel free to add more or less of one of the chocolate chips of your choice if you like! ENJOY AND BE CAREFUL (they’re addicting) 🙂

Ingredients:
6 cups of Rice Krispy cereal
4 cups of mini marshmallows (for extra gooey delicious-ness!)
2 ½ Tbsp butter
½ cup of caramel candy bits (you can find these by the chocolate chips in the grocery store)
¾ cup butterscotch chips (plus extra for the topping)
½ cup melting candy milk chocolate
½ cup white chocolate chips
½ cup milk chocolate chips

Steps:
1. In a microwavable bowl, melt together the marshmallows and butter for 1 minute.

2. In a large bowl, add the cereal and stir in the marshmallow mixture. ***spray spatula with non-stick cooking spray so the mixture doesn’t become too sticky. Stir in the caramel and butterscotch chips until slightly melted.

3. Spray a baking dish (I used a 9x13inch baking dish) with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the rice krispy treats and spread evenly with a sprayed spatula. (You can even spray your hands as well if you wanted to use your hands instead).

4. Melt the melting candy chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds, or until melted and spread with spatula until it evenly coats the treats! Sprinkle white chocolate, milk chocolate, caramel, and butterscotch chips all over bars and let cool for 20 minutes. I like to put mine in the refrigerator if I am in a hurry..Cut the bars into any size you want and enjoy!
CAUTION: these are ridiculously good 😉
