Classic Rice Krispies topped with caramel and chocolate make the perfect Milky Way Rice Krispie Treats. I was in love with these when I made them. Not only are they gorgeous and easy to make but they’re sinfully good! I’m a huge Rice Krispie fan and my all-time favorite has been my Peanut Butter Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats but these Milky Way ones are definitely in the running now! The caramel layer is to die for…
Is everyone ready for Halloween or not so much? I still haven’t bought a pumpkin, whoops! But I did manage to get a wreath up on the door so I look a little festive 🙂 I even took a plate of these over the to neighbors!
First of all, don’t pay attention to my little ridge I made off to the right. I was already using my casserole dish and all I had to work with was this really huge pan, so I made do!
Yes, they do taste as good as they look. Maybe even better. Plus, to make taking these photos ever more fun, a friend let me borrow his fancy macro lens. Oh my, it was dreamy. Out of my budget, but it was so much fun to play around with it!
