These are great gooey bars. Just a couple of notes I might add - The rice krispie/marshmellow mix sets up quickly, so prepare the caramel sauce first and keep it warm and 'pourable'. The 9x13 pan makes a thinner bar and I found it difficult to make a solid krispie layer that would keep the caramel sauce from finding it's way to the bottom of the pan. A cooler (hence thicker) caramel sauce would also help. Next time I make these I would probably use an 8 x 10 pan just so the bottom layer could be more dense. Last tidbit - butter your fingers to help keep the rice krispies from sticking to you when your lightly smooshing the layers in the pan!
