Caramel Rolo Rice Krispie Treats

These rice krispie treats aren’t just any rice krispie treats. No, these treats don’t even use marshmallows. Instead the sugary gods of sweetness hold these babies together with an entire bag of caramels. And the caramel train doesn’t stop there. They’re also filled with an entire bag of Rolos. Caramel + Rolos + rice krispies = crunchy caramel heaven.

Can you tell I’m good at math?

And they would be a great way to use up some leftover Halloween candy. Any candy with caramel and/or chocolate would be tasty in these – milky ways, snickers, Twix, M&Ms – the possibilities are endless!
