Did you know there's a surefire way to make any treat better?  It's called caramel...and chocolate...and pecans; otherwise known as turtles!

Any dessert that's layered with delicious homemade caramel, melty milk chocolate, and crunchy pecans is right up my alley.  I decided to whip up some rice crispy treats this weekend - I'm all about the no-bake desserts lately - but I couldn't just stop there. 

Nope, not content to let a good thing be...I decided to make it just a leeeeetle bit more special. I wanted Turtle Rice Crispy Treats, and the result was so good and so easy. Next time you want to fancy up your crispy treats, try 'em this way. You won't be sorry.

Turtle Rice Crispy 
Treats
Yield: 12 bars   Printable Recipe

4 tbsp salted butter
6 cups mini marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla
5 cups rice crispy treats

Caramel:
2/3 cup salted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/8 cup milk

Topping:
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans

In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until the marshmallows have melted. Add the vanilla extract. Stir in the crispy rice cereal, one cup at a time, until well combined. Press the mixture into a greased 9x9 baking pan.

Make the caramel: In a small saucepan add the butter, brown sugar, and milk. Bring to a boil and cook until caramel begins to thicken and pull away from the pan.


Pour the caramel sauce over the rice crispy treats. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the caramel, followed by the chopped pecans. Place in the refrigerator until the chocolate sets back up. Serve and try not to drool. Enjoy!

Mmm what a fabulous recipe!

Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe said...

I LOVE rice krispie squares but do not make them nearly often enough (mostly because I would eat the entire pan in less than two days...it's happened before). I absolutely love the addition of caramel, chocolate and pecans - what a great way to make a plain (but totally awesome) treat even more special!
