If I could give this recipe 6 stars I would. These are awesome. Such a delicious twist on the plain old krispie treats! If you use a 13x9 pan, as suggested in the recipe, it will fill the entire pan and make big tall krispie treats, but if you want them a little smaller, divide it up into 2 13x9 pans. I ended up cutting tall ones in half to serve...but either way, they are wonderful. Thanks MrsFisher!!

I found these to be heavy and for the extra calories and ingredients just not worth it. I'll stick to the original.

Almost too delicious! Only variation is I used a can of sweetened condensed milk that I cooked in crockpot first, for the caramel sauce. Then added marshmallows and Rice Krispies!

I am a rice crispy lover, I don't know that I will be making them any other way! My family can't stop eating them! Worth (at the very least) trying once!

I was making a second batch before the first one had cooled. My daughter needed a snack for a class at school. I came across this recipe and after reading the rave reviews, decided to try it out. AMAZING!!! This is my first review as well. It is that good, and I will definitely make this again!

I never write reviews but I HAD to for this one. I've tried a few dessert recipes with a caramel sauce before and I've never had one turn out as good as this one! This recipe is amazing for the salted caramel sauce alone. The only change I made was to use cocoa krispies for a chocolate taste, otherwise this recipe is perfect!

Believe the reviews on this one! I couldn't find flaked sea salt so used fine Pink Himalayan sea salt. I wasn't sure if I needed to adjust amounts so added 1/2 teaspoon at a time and tasted after each addition. I ended up using the full 2 teaspoons and it was perfect. I used a 13x9 pan and also a 9x9 to get the height that I thought was good. My finished bars were a titch over an inch high. Everyone asked for the recipe on this one. They still taste like Rice Krispie bars, but subtly and wonderfully different. Great recipe!!

12 oz. cereal does not mean 12 ounces per your measuring cup, it means a whole box. If you are going with a 12 fluid ounce measurement, you will have to run to the store for more cereal, which is a bummer when you are cooking. The family members who made this gave it two stars (see above) but the people who ate it gave it 4s and 5s. You absolutely need all the salt--otherwise it is ridiculously sweet (probably too sweet if you substitute the sweetened condensed like one reviewer suggested).
