Do you enjoy Rice Krispie Roll Ups? I sure do. I love them alone, dipped in fondue, covered in caramel or chocolate or any other way.
What makes them better, you may ask? Well, my husband discovered the trick. It really isn’t all that complicated, either!
If you can go to the store, buy a box of Rice Krispies, drive home, and pour the ingredients into a bowl, you can most certainly master the fine art of whipping up a batch of these beloved treats! Now, I like this recipe because it adds something a bit different to the mix than what your classic rice Krispie treats do. Are you curious as to what this mystery ingredient is? Caramel!
Caramel Krispy squares. My husband was the one who suggested this additive and we looked up a recipe and lo and behold, found one from Australia of all places! It was such an amazing alternative to the original and still so delicious with everything I mentioned above.
I will be making these yummy treats during the holidays as I am sure my friends and family will love them to pieces! You can also bring these treats to a church party, classroom snack, or give them away as gifts for a lovely homemade treat.

10 ½ ounces of mini marshmallows.
5 ½ cups of rice krispies.
1 ½ cups of milk chocolate chips.
½ cup of peanut butter.
In a 6 quart kettle, melt the butter and mix in the marshmallows and let melt over low heat then add in the rice and mix until well combined.

Loosen all around with a metal spatula and roll starting on the long side.
Sprinkle the roll with seasonal sprinkles and slice to serve!
Easy, peasy and crazy! The marshmallows and rice krispies go perfectly with the chocolate and peanut butter. I had some leftovers that I wrapped in saran wrap for the next day. Give it a shot, you will like it!
