  • 14 oz. caramels about 45 little caramel squares
  • 1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups Chocolate chips or almond bark if you use chocolate chips you can add a little heavy cream
  • 2 cups chopped pecans (toasted for more flavor, optional)


  1. 1. Prep a 9 by 13 pan by greasing it and/or lining it with parchment paper.
  2. 2. Place marshmallows, butter and vanilla extract in a large microwave safe bowl and microwave until marshmallows are puffy and stir until smooth.

  3. 3. Add Rice Krispie Cereal and fold until combined. Dump into prepared pan and pat until flat.

  4. 4. Over medium heat melt unwrapped caramels, sweetened condensed milk, and butter until smooth. Pour over Rice Krispie Treats.
  5. 5. Melt chocolate chips and spread over caramel. (Add a little cream if you want it to be thinner.)
  6. 6. Sprinkle chopped pecans over the chocolate layer and let set in the fridge or on the counter. (But the fridge takes much less time.)
