I thought these were so good. They are kind of a pain though. I cut the marshmallows in half and used a skewer to dip them in the melted caramel. I used a knife to help push them off the skewer after rolling them in the rice krispies. This recipe makes a ton. Next time I'll just make half a batch.

We really liked these but they took a long time to prepare. But...... they were so worth it. The combination of marshmallow and the caramel were out of this world. Add the crunch of the rice krispies and wow, instead delish. DD and I were talking and we want to add coconut to the krispies next time to try. Thank you for posting.

I love, love, love these things. Yes, they're messy to make, but totally worth it. We poked the frozen marshmallows with skewers and then dipped them in the caramel and then the rice krispies. You could try spraying Pam on your hands to help with the mess. I didn't mind the mess, though. They are SO good!!

This was a twisy on Rice Krispy treats - kinda "inside out" but delicious - at least my daughters thought so. One trick; we speared the marshmallows with popsicle sticks/ sucker sticks and used that handle to dip, roll, and eat these treats without the "sticky factor"! We wrapped a few in plastic wrap, tied with a ribbon to give as favors for a party. Yummy!

I got this recipe from my Grandma. I absolutely LOVE these little treats. She taught me to cut the large marshmallows in half using wet scissors. It makes them more of a bite sized treat. I've never bothered to freeze the marshmallows before assembling. I think they are worth the effort. My kids and I have fun making these together and the extra hands make the assembly go faster! Thanks for posting!-HK

The finished product is always tasty but it can be a pain to make. We like to serve these on our cookie trays around the holidays (but due to the 'stick factor' we don't give them as gifts).

I was going to post this recipe and now I don't have to! Our family loves these little treats and they disappear very quickly. I normally make them using Mackintosh's Toffee instead of the caramels (this recipe would use 8 bars of toffee). They're definitely worth the mess and the sticky fingers!

This is a great recipe! I was looking for something different to do with all the Rice Krispies I had and decided to make these. My nieces and nephews loved them, and my room mate is begging me to make more. The only problem was that I ended up with a big bowl of cereal that had a lot of caramel sauce run-off in it. Next time I make these, I'll only use a couple of cups at a time and change it out when it gets clumpy. The clumpy cereal isn't a bad thing as it's fun to eat, but it seems to waste more cereal than necessary. Thanks for a great treat!
