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