Cinnamon Dolce Rice Krispies Treats are made with gooey, creamy dulce de leche and caramel, making this a decadent Rice Krispies treat.
14ouncecan sweetened condensed milk
8cupsRice Krispies cereal
1/4cupGhirardelli’s white chocolate melting chips
Dulce de Leche
Remove the label from can. Using a bottle opener pierce three holes in the formation of a triangle on top of can. You need to do this to allow the pressure to release from the heat. You don’t want any exploding cans going off in the kitchen.
Place the can in a saucepan and fill the saucepan with water three-quarters of the way up the side of the can.
Bring water to a simmer and keep it there for 3-4 hours or until desired consistency. I like to cook mine closer to 4 hours for a thicker texture and darker color.
When ready to remove, use tongs to take the can out and cool slightly. Pour dulce de leche in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Use immediately or make the day before - just make sure if you do this to let it cool before storing.
Rice Krispies Treat
In a large mixing bowl, pour in the Rice Krispies cereal and sprinkle the cinnamon over the cereal. Toss and few times to get the cinnamon through the cereal.
Thoroughly grease a 9 by 13-inch pan with softened butter or cooking spray and set aside.
In a large pot, melt the butter. Stir in the mini marshmallows until they're totally melted. Remove from the heat and stir in a little more than half of the dulce de leche.
Pour the dulce marshmallow mixture over the cereal, folding gently the whole time until all combined. Turn into the buttered pan.
In a small microwaveable bowl, melt white chocolate, following directions on the package. Once chocolate has melted, drizzle over bars. Let the chocolate harden and cut into squares and serve.
The 3 hours is to make the dulce leche. If you don't want to make your own, you can buy canned dulce de leche from your local grocery stores. For this recipe I made my own.
