Ingredients for Caramel Marshmallow Crispy Treats
- 1 small can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 1 package caramels
- Rice Krispies cereal
Melt caramels, shortening, and sweetened condensed milk in a double boiler.
One by one, dip large marshmallows in the caramel mixture and roll in rice cereal. Place on wax paper to set up a bit before storing. If the caramel mixture starts to stiffen before you are done, throw it back over the double boiler for a minute or two. (Tip: keep a wet towel, knife and fork handy as it will make them easier to work with.) Makes 4 dozen.
Store covered. They'll stay fresh for several days (not that they last that long at my house!)
For a cute presentation, add cute cupcake toppers like the 4th of July picks my sister-in-law added to these.
