Marshmallow krispies are marshmallows dipped in caramel and rolled in rice krispies. A family favorite for Christmas. You can make these ahead of time and freeze. Delicious right out of the freezer too.
These marshmallow krispies are a family favorite during Christmas time. It’s a tie between these and the cornflake treats I shared last month.
I made this batch for my daughter’s school Christmas program. They’re great to make ahead of time and stick in the freezer. You can even serve frozen.
The only thing missing in these pictures is the dozen other Christmas cookies my family makes in addition. Eventually, I’ll get to sharing the other recipes. I hope you enjoy this one in the meantime.
- 16 oz Kraft caramels
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 sticks butter (1 cup)
- 1 1/2 packages of marshmallows
- 1 box Rice Krispies
Recipe Instructions & Tips
Unwrap the individual caramels. This was our job growing up when my Mom would make these.
In a medium to large bowl, add the butter, caramels and sweetened condensed milk. Melt in the microwave in small increments until melted, stirring often.
Dip each marshmallow into the caramel mixture. I use a dipping tool I use often for dipping cake pops.
Repeat until all of the caramel mixture is gone. This recipe should yield about 5 or 6 dozen.
Don’t forget to at least test one. 😉 Store until ready to serve.
And like I said above — these treats freeze well, especially in a metal tin. And are delicious when frozen.
