A traditional turtle candy has a caramel mixture mixed with salty pecans all covered in chocolate. These rice krispie treats have the same great flavors, with a tasty and gooey marshmallow rice krispie layer too.
These turtle rice krispie treats start out with a traditional gooey marshmallow rice krispie treat later. Top that with a layer of melted caramel, that soaks into the rice krispie treats to make the whole bar a gooey caramelly treat. Then you’ll spread melted chocolate over the top and sprinkle it all over with chopped pecans.
Grab everything you need to make these amazing bars from your local Target! For these you need Kellogg’s Rice Krispies, butter, mini marshmallows, soft caramels, heavy cream, chocolate chips and chopped pecans!
These bars are one of my new favorite treats and I can’t wait to make batch after batch for the holidays. They are the perfect treat to share with friends, family and neighbors! And they’re great to make together as a family, even my two year old loves helping me stir and mix the ingredients together and sprinkle the nuts on top.
