Marshmallow Krispies

These marshmallow krispies are a family favorite during Christmas time. It’s a tie between these and the corn flake treats I shared last month.

I made this batch for my daughter’s school Christmas program. They’re great to make ahead of time and stick in the freezer. You can even serve frozen.

The only thing missing in these pictures is the dozen other Christmas cookies my family makes in addition. Eventually I’ll get to sharing the other recipes. I hope you enjoy this one in the meantime. 🙂

Recipe Instructions & Tips

Unwrap the individual caramels. This was our job growing up when my Mom would make these.

In a medium to large bowl, add the butter, caramels and sweetened condensed milk. Melt in the microwave in small increments until melted, stirring often.

Dip each marshmallow into the caramel mixture. I use a dipping tool I use often for dipping cake pops.

Roll in Rice Krispies. You may have to press the marshmallow into the Rice Krispies to get them to stick.

Place on wax paper or parchment paper to set.

And like I said above — these treats freeze well, especially in a metal tin. And are delicious when frozen.
