Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons butter 60g
  • cup dulce de leche 200g
  • 200 g mini marshmallows 5 cups
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 5 cups rice krispies 160g

For topping:

  • 300 g dark chocolate I use a mixture of 50% and 70% cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon 15g butter

Instructions

  • Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper and very lightly spray with oil spray or grease with oil.
  • Place the butter, dulce de leche and marshmallows into a large saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until melted. This process will take about 10-15 minutes. Stir in the cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt and stir to combine.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the rice krispies until everything is well coated.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and very gently use the back of a spoon to coax the mixture into the corners of the pan so that everything is evenly distributed but not too heavily compacted.
  • For the topping: Place the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and set above a pan of gently simmering water until melted; stir to combine.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture over the top of the rice krispie treats and spread out evenly with a spatula. Leave to set in the fridge for about an hour before cutting into squares. I recommend running your knife under hot water before cutting - this ensures that you get nice clean cuts.
