Create your own treats by making this easy simple Best ever Rice Krispie Caramel treat. Your kids will love them and the best this is you don’t need to use marshmallows to make this Rice Krispie Caramel recipe. In my case, marshmallows is not something that I buy but we do have Rice Crispy cereals.
In this recipe we used caramel, but I would recommend honey or even maple syrup instead of the caramel syrup, if you prefer. After folding the rice crispy into the caramel mixture we filled only half way, different size cookie cutters to make individual cookies. If you don’t have cookie cutters at the moment, you can transfer the mixture directly to the prepared baking sheet and press in evenly to form a rectangular, then let cool before cutting it into squares. You can even spoon the rice mixture into muffin tins. With these treats we sprinkled some rainbow decor but it you have a sweeter tooth you can always drizzle some chocolate, maple or caramel syrup over them.
I would totally recommend a cookie cutter to successfully make this recipe, it’s very useful to have in the kitchen!
