Caramel Rice Krispies Bars

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by The_Desperate_House

A delicious twist on an old favorite. A rich and sinful caramel layer nestled between two layers of Krispies bars. It is sweet, it is gooey, and once you try these you won't ever want to eat a plain Krispies bar again! (Prep time includes refrigeration)

Thank you for this recipe! The first time I made these, I didn't have enough rice krispies, so substituted corn flakes. They were a hit! That's how I make them every time, now. (Plus, I use butter instead of margarine.) Now, at my kids' school, I am famous for these bars!!! I totally agree, "you won't ever want to eat a plain Krispies bar again!" (I have also been in too much of a time crunch to refrigerate the caramel layer and that seems to not affect their wonderfulness.)
