We are in love with these gooey Salted Caramel Marshmallow Treat Bars. Chocolate, pretzels, Chex, butterscotch chips,- how could you not love these easy treats?
Just looking at these pictures again makes my mouth water. These treat bars were just so perfect!
Salty caramel sauce and pretzels. Two kinds of chocolate. Butter. Marshmallows. And let us not be remiss and forget to mention the butterscotch chips!
I enjoy a good rice crispy treat as much as the next person but my absolute favorite ones have some “extras” in them. Still chewy and gooey and just a bit sticky but full of fun flavors. We took these to a game night and friends begged for the recipe as the bars flew off the platter. Clearly I’m not alone in my love of this chewy confection!
Maybe best of all you can make them in 15 minutes. You’re welcome!
