Caramel Marshmallow Candy Treats

These are the Treats that my granddaughter and I made today. I am going to box them up and send to my out of town grands for a Christmas treat! I got the recipe from the TOH Recipe board. :) I used the crockpot to melt and blend the milk, caramel and butter. And I managed to drop all of my first 5 cups of Rice Krispies on the floor before I even began! Thankfully I had a big box and had enough to finish this project.

  • 5 cups crisp rice cereal, coarsely crushed
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 package (14 ounces) caramels
  • 1 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 package (16 ounces) large marshmallows


Line two baking sheets with waxed paper; set aside. Place cereal in a shallow bowl. In a large saucepan, cook and stir the milk, caramels and butter over low heat until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat; stir in the cinnamon and vanilla.
With a toothpick, dip each marshmallow into warm caramel mixture; turn to coat. Press marshmallow bottoms in cereal; place on prepared pans. Let stand until set.
Yield: 5 dozen.
