Rice Krispietreats bring me straight back to childhood. There were one of the first things I made in the kitchen. I remember bringing a rice krispietreat home (my daycare teacher did a lesson on measuring) and I was so proud. I thought it was the greatest thing I ever did. It was neon-greenness and covered in the copious amounts of rainbow sprinkles. It was beautiful!

This recipe isn’t for a super-neon green rice krispiedecorated with rainbow sprinkles – although that would have been awesome. Instead it’s a bit (just a wee bit) grown up with some toasted coconut, sliced almonds and salted caramel. These squares kind oftaste like a macaroon and a macaronhad an illicit love affair and somehow ended up with a rice krispiebaby. I know, that makes no sense at all, but the toasted coconut gives it a macaroon feeling and the sliced almonds give it that macaron craving. What I’m not-so-eloquently trying to say is, they’re delicious and perfect for chasing away any Monday blues!

    Too funny, my daughter just made Rice Krispie treats tonight and she asked me if she could do something interesting with them. Since the only ideas she had were neon food coloring and peanut butter (which my husband can’t tolerate), we just made the original recipe. Bookmarking this to try next time. Thanks!

    Should the toasted coconut be sweetened or unsweetened coconut??

    These look so tasty and not too unhealthy.. Rice crispies are mainly air, right? I absolutely love the photography too. One to try. Thanks!

    Currently stuffing my face with one of these. Awe-some! I was nervous to make salted caramel sauce for the first time, but it was easy and I had to stop myself from drinking it. This is one of those go-to desserts that are perfect for those times when you want something homemade, but quick and textually satisfying (I’m kind of a texture dessert freak). It’s also a dessert that is sure to impress at a party. Thanks, you rock!!!
