Caramel Marshmallow Treats

Mmmmm..... A childhood favorite. Maybe that's why I was so chubby. :)
  • 5 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 package (14 ounces) caramels
  • 1 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 package (16 ounces) large marshmallows


Line two baking sheets with waxed paper; set aside. Place cereal in a shallow bowl. In a large saucepan, cook and stir the milk, caramels and butter over low heat until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat; stir in the cinnamon and vanilla.
(I like to let caramel cool and thicken a bit before dipping, cuz if it's too runny it will run off mallow and then you just get a puddle at the bottoms)
With a toothpick, dip each marshmallow into warm caramel mixture; turn to coat. 
Roll marshmallows in cereal; place on prepared pans. Let stand until set.
