Carmallow Crisps

I was at the grocery store last week... 
and found

Seriously... look at how much bigger they are!

Sink your teeth in those babies.

They got me thinking back to my childhood, when my mom used to make
one of my FAVORITE things - 
marshmallows dipped in melted caramel and Rice Krispies.

Here's what you need!

- 1/2 can of Sweetened Condensed Milk

- 1/2 stick of butter

- 1 bag of caramels

- 2 cups of Rice Krispies

Combine the condensed milk, butter and caramels in a bowl.
Put in the microwave for 3-5 minutes... (stop and stir every minute.)

It will come out like this!

Put your 2 cups of Rice Krispies in bowl.

Put the BIG mallow on a fork.

Dip in the melted caramel...

... then dip in the Rice Krispies!

Line some tupperware with wax paper.
(You'll be SO GLAD you did this, when it comes to clean-up!)

Place the dipped "carmallow crisps" in the tupperware.

Put in the fridge for about 1-2 hours.

Take out - and serve at room temperature.
(Some people like them REALLY cold... just depends how soft you want 
the marshmallow inside.)

Oh, baby... baby... baby.

The sweetness from the marshmallow... 
and the saltiness from the caramel...
combined with the CRUNCH of the Rice Krispies - yummmmmmo.


But - BONUS!
If you FLIP the bag over... there are some fun recipes on the back.

If caramels and Rice Krispies ARE NOT your thing...

The GIANT marshmallows are just as delicious with a nice dessert wine!

Whichever way you prefer - enjoy!

These marshmallows would also be PERFECT for the campfire this summer :)
