Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Treats with Mocha Ganache

Print Post Print Recipe

Rice Krispie treats are all grown up with the addition of salted caramel and a rich mocha ganache.  Make this special treat for Super Bowl or your next gathering and watch the Rice Krispie treats disappear!

Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Treats with Mocha Ganache

Last Monday we talked the how-tos on making salted caramel.  Just a few ingredients and no thermometer; the basics really aren’t that hard.  Now that we have that covered, I figured you could use some new recipes for the salted caramel that you won’t want to stop making (and eating).

Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Treats with Mocha Ganache

These sweet and salty rice krispie treats are a fun and easy no-bake treat to make.  They might be the perfect pick-up treat for the Super Bowl in a few weeks.  The salted caramel krispie treat base is slightly gooey so they are best stored in the refrigerator.  The mocha ganache is rich and really makes them something special.  I liked them with and without the ganache topping, though.

    Actually, I DO have a superbowl party that I’m being dragged to (forcibly, against my will)…and these would definitely be a crowd-pleaser among the.boy’s friends!

    Definitely a special treat! I might not be able to wait for the Superbowl to make them :)

    Plain rice krispie treats will never be the same for me again! Super bowl party is TBD, but who needs to wait for game day to seek their teeth into this caramel-chocolate-mocha goodness?

    Words can’t describe how delicious these look! Or maybe they can: double yum :-)

    Wow. I have zero interest in the Super Bowl, but I’d watch it to get one or two of these.
