  • 1 8 count box Rice Krispies Treats
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter divided
  • 1/2 bag caramels about 16-18 pieces

Maple Glaze

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  • Line up your unwrapped Rice Krispies Treats in a small baking dish. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons butter over medium heat.
  • Add sweetened condensed milk. Allow it to heat up for a minute or two, but not to a boil.
  • Add caramels, and stir until the caramels are melted and the mixture is smooth and creamy. Remove from heat.
  • Pour caramel mixture over the Rice Krispies treats, and spread, if necessary.
  • Chill for 15-30 minutes, until the caramel sets.
  • When the caramel has set, remove from refrigerator, and separate the Rice Krispies Treats if the caramel made them stick together.
  • In a medium microwaveable bowl, add maple syrup and 2 tablespoons of butter. Warm in the microwave in 45 second intervals, stirring between each interval until the mixture is hot and the butter is melted.
  • Whisk in powdered sugar.
  • Immediately drizzle onto caramel-topped Rice Krispies Treats.
  • You can eat these immediately, since the glaze sets pretty quickly.
