Dipped Caramel Marshmallows

I lived in a small town growing up and all of my neighbors exchanged gifts at Christmastime. One neighbor made a plate of treats every year and there would be like 2 of these marshmallows. Yummm... It's funny because I usually only like marshmallows when they are melted but these are a delicious exception! I think they are fabulous! I made them last year when I was doing a craft with some friends but completely forgot to post it! It turned out just perfect because I remembered just in time for Christmas. I bet these would be really fun to make with kids! Hope someone out there enjoys them as much as me!

Dipped Caramel Marshmallows

1/2 cup butter
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk
1 pkg. wrapped caramels, unwrap them
1 bag large marshmallows
approx. 2 cups rice krispies

1. Melt butter, sweetened condensed milk, and caramels together in a saucepan over low-medium heat.

2. Lay a piece of parchment paper to the side for the marshmallows to cool on. Then dip each marshmallow in the caramel sauce using a fork or spoon. 

3. Next, roll in the rice krispies and place on parchment paper. 

4. Refrigerate until set in sealed container. Serve at room temperature. :)
