Why is Nutella so delicious and sooo addicting?? Its like peanut butter… I can just eat spoonful after spoonful.

The sea salt in this Salted Caramel & Nutella Rice Krispie Treats recipe balances out the sweetness of the Nutella and the Rice Krispies cereal give it that perfect crunch
Feel free to try Cocoa Krispies with this recipe as well, as I’m sure it would be delicious!

Salted Caramel & Nutella Rice Krispie Treats
(serves 12)
6 Tablespoons butter
1 bag mini marshmallow (10.5 oz)
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1 cup Nutella
1 1/2 cups chopped chocolate (I just used semi-sweet chocolate chips)
1 Tablespoon vegetable shortening

1/2 of a 14 oz. bag of caramel candies, unwrapped
2 Tablespoons half and half

1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat.
2. Once butter is melted, stir in the marshmallows, keep stirring until the marshmallow are melted- about 2-3 minutes. 
3. Stir in the cereal and sea salt. Mix well. 
4. Place cereal mixture into a pre-sprayed 9X13″ pan & use a silicon spatula to press the cereal mixture evenly into the pan. Set aside to cool.
5. In a small saucepan melt the Nutella, chopped chocolate and shortening over medium-low heat. When the chocolate has melted completely, pour & spread evenly over cereal mixture. Allow the chocolate to set for at least 30 minutes, then cut into squares.
6. Melt the caramel and half and half in small saucepan over low heat.
7. When the caramel mixture has melted, scoop some into a pastry bag or a Ziploc bag with a small hole cut out of the corner.
8. Drizzle the caramel over the tops of the rice krispie treats and serve.

Ummm, I think I would do something very very bad to get my hands on these! I have been wanting to make just regular Nutella Rice Krispie Treats but these look a million and one times more sinful.

do you use unsalted butter in the recipe?


Mini Baker March 14, 2012 at 12:05 am

I use salted butter for 99% of my recipes. But you can use either 🙂
Happy Baking,

These look dangerous and delicious! Salted caramel is one of my favorite flavors out there.

Just discovered your blog from a comment you left on How Sweet Eats and really excited to explore more! 🙂

are you aware an Etsy shop has stolen your idea and images?


Tina April 18, 2014 at 10:33 am

These look good and I will be making them, but can someone explain how these are “salted caramel” if it is just plain old melted caramel drizzled on?..I would think sprinkling some of the flaked salt on top would then render them “salted caramel.” Otherwise these are just Nutella and caramel Rice Krispie bars.

These were absolutely amazing!!! Without a doubt, they were the best thing I’ve baked in months.
