Sometimes you’re just too tired to make cookies, so I often opt for rice crispy treats because they are so easy to make when you’re half asleep and need a treat at the last minute. Melt butter, melt marshmallows, add cereal, pat into a pan, cool, eat. With such a versatile recipe, you can make it fit whatever mood you’re in. I was in a chocolate and caramel kind of mood one rainy night, so I made Chocolate Caramel Twix Rice Crispy Treats. Which is funny because I was never a fan of Twix growing up (it was a texture thing with the cookie part). However, I needed something to stir in that would reflect the chocolate and caramel, and Twix was all that I could think of. With leftover caramel sauce and a full box of cereal, I grabbed a pot and started melting and stirring.

My original thought was to mix caramel sauce in with the marshmallows and stir in regular rice cereal. After all, I’ve done it before with peanut butter. Then I spied the box of Cocoa Rice Krispies on top of my fridge, thinking it only had a handful left in it. Apparently I never opened the box! Now I’m wondering if I bought the box for another recipe I had in mind. Well if I did, I didn’t write it down. Or maybe I predicted making these chocolate caramel treats down the road.

These treats were gobbled up in no time. As much as I love chocolate and caramel paired together, I also want to try these with regular rice crispy cereal and let the caramel sauce shine through. Oh and just the other day, I spotted caramel swirl marshmallows at the store. First I thought of caramel s’mores then I thought about these treats. I can only imagine the possibilities.
