- 6 cups crispy rice cereal
- 1 10oz package mini marshmallows
- 1 stick (8oz) butter
- 1/4 c Caramel Kitchen Pumpkin Spice Caramel Sauce
- 6 oz white chocolate bars (I like to use Lindt White Chocolate bars)
- Butter a 9x11 baking dish and set aside. (You can also use an 8x8 or 9x9 pan if you prefer thicker bars).
- Add the butter, marshmallows and pumpkin spice caramel sauce to a large pot over medium-low heat and stir continuously until most of the marshmallows are melted.
- Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the crispy rice cereal. Continue to stir until the marshmallow mixture evenly coats the cereal.
- Transfer the contents of the pot to the prepared baking dish and use a greased rubber spatula to smooth out the cereal until evenly distributed.
- Allow to cool completely before cutting into equal size bars.
- Coarsely chop the white chocolate bars and add them to a double boiler. Completely melt the white chocolate over low heat and transfer to a shallow dish.
- Take one rice crispy bar at a time and dip the bottom into the melted white chocolate.
- Place each dipped bar on a piece of parchment paper to allow to set up. (I placed a piece of parchment paper on a cutting board that I placed in the freezer for a couple of minutes to cool, allowing the chocolate to set faster when the bars were placed on it).
