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).

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.
