KRISPY TOFFEE SQUARES
1 C. flour
1 1/2 C. Rice Krispies
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 C. firmly packed brown sugar
2/3 C. melted butter or margarine
32 unwrapped caramels - I use Werther's Creamy (I used Werthers Original Chewy Caramels and it worked out perfectly!)
1 tbsp milk
1 C. milk chocolate chips
Melt Butter/Margerine and mix in the brown sugar.
Mix flour, baking soda, salt and Rice Krispies. Add melted butter/sugar and mix together lightly to not smush the Rice Krispies.
Press half of this into 8"x8" pan. (I didn’t have a square pan so used an 8” dia. Deep dish glass pie plate – portions worked out awesome!) The other half keep aside.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
Melt caramels with 1 tbsp of milk in microwave on low power or over low heat on stove and set aside, 1 minute, stir and then maybe another 30 seconds until it is fairly runny, but don't over heat. I do this just before crust is ready to come out of oven.
Sprinkle chocolate chips over cooked crust layer and pour melted caramels on top.
Break up leftover crumb mixture with a fork and sprinkle on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for another 15 minutes.
Cool before cutting. Do not refrigerate, they will break your teeth!!!!
As a side note, I could not wait for it to cool completely and the first couple of samples I ate with a spoon. Add a glass of milk and make sure you have some privacy while consuming. Yes it’s that good!
Many thanks to Heather Millar for sharing this recipe with me and the others at our crops!
