Ingredients

For the Salted Caramel Sauce:

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 6 TBS butter (cut into slices)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp Sea of Cortés Gourmet Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

For the Rice Krispie Treats

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 10 oz mini marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup salted caramel sauce
  • 5 1/2 cups crispy rice cereal

Instructions

!For the Salted Caramel Sauce:

  • Measure out all your ingredients and set them aside so they are ready when you need them.
  • Add your white sugar to a medium sized sauce pan and heat over medium heat on the stove top.
  • Stir constantly with a wooden spoon. Sugar will first form into little clumps, and then will eventually melt into an amber colored liquid. Keep stirring.
  • Once the sugar is completely melted add in the butter. Stir it into the butter until its completely melted, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Very slowly stir in the heavy cream. It will steam a little, so be careful. Allow the mixture to boil for 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat and pour in the sea salt and vanilla.
  • Pour into a glass jar and allow co cool until needed.

For the Rice Krispie Treats:

  • Melt the butter over medium low heat in a large sauce pan.
  • Add in the marshmallows and stir together till the marshmallows are almost completely melted.
  • Stir in the salted caramel sauce.
  • Pour in the cereal and mix together till cereal is completely coated.
  • Pour into a 7x11in pan (or a 9x9) and press down evenly. 
  • Allow to set before slicing.

Notes

You can also use a 9x13 pan, the treats will just be a little thinner.
