Super gooey Snickers Rice Krispie Treats with Salted Caramel. Sticky, chewy, soft, and easy!

I know my rice krispie treats are a hit when the first thing I have to do after eating one is wash the marshmallow goo off my face and hands.

I’ll take my rice krispie treats with an extra side of goo, please. Along with the gooey factor, my  rice krispie treats should be composed of the following textural elements: soft & chewy. Exactly how I like my cookies.

So soft that they stand the test of time and taste just as fresh the next day.  So chewy that you sound like a cow munching on grass for at least 2-3 minutes per square. Attractive.  It’s so worth it though.

For todays treats, I took a couple extra steps to make them stand out from any other regular rice krispie treat I’ve ever had.   I added stuff.  Some really, really good stuff.

Super gooey Snickers Rice Krispie Treats with Salted Caramel. Sticky, chewy, soft, and easy!

My first step was to make a quick salted caramel sauce to swirl throughout the treats.  Making your own salted caramel is laughably easy.  I used wrapped caramels, a touch of half-and-half, and sea salt.  Melt the three together and keep on low heat.  You’re going to swirl this liquid gold into the treats later.

The next step is to make the butter/marshmallow goo.  When I’m making any kind of rice krispie treat, I always use more butter (and less cereal) than your typical recipe. The marshmallows are what harden and turn your treats to rocks the next day, so you want to butter them up as much as you can.  When you are melting the two together, be sure to do so on very low heat and constantly stir.  You want the mixture to be very buttery.

I add the cereal and salted caramel sauce next.  Start with the cereal and make sure that each piece is fairly coated in marshmallow.  Swirl in your homemade salted caramel.

And finally, I add in what I can only refer to as chunky bites of heaven.  Snickers.

Sweet milk chocolate, creamy nougat, salty peanuts, and velvety caramel.  Personally, I like my snickers bars frozen… just how my mom always used to eat them.

You’ll want to gently fold the snickers pieces into the cereal/marshmallow/salted caramel mixture.  You don’t want the chocolate to melt completely.

Between the caramel in the Snickers and the salted caramel swirl, these rice krispie treats have a double dose of the good stuff.

After your overloaded gooey mess is stirred together, transfer to your baking pan. 9×9 for THICK squares, 11×7 for thinner squares. I used 9×9. Be sure to not press the treats into the pan with force.  That’s what creates a hard rice krispie treat!  Instead, you want to mold them into the pan’s shape by very, very gently pressing down with a spatula.  I spray the backside of my spatula with non-stick spray for ease.

Between the stretchy strings of marshmallow, ribbons of salted caramel, melty chocolate, and crunchy peanuts… I dub these the gooiest overloaded treat I’ve ever had.  I love all the texture going on. They’re also sweet & salty, a combination that makes me weak at the knees. 🙂

Super gooey Snickers Rice Krispie Treats with Salted Caramel. Sticky, chewy, soft, and easy!

Sturdy enough to hold their shape, but soft enough to remain gooey.

I warmed my treat up for 10 seconds in the microwave when I ate one.

 Proceed at your own risk.

Snickers Rice Krispie Treats with Salted Caramel

Super-gooey, chewy, and soft rice krispie treats stuffed with Snickers Bars and swirled with salted caramel.


  • 14 soft caramel candies, like Kraft
  • 1 teaspoon half-and-half or heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 (10.5 oz) bag mini marshmallows
  • 3 and 1/2 cups rice crisp cereal
  • 1 and 1/2 cups chopped Snickers Bars


  1. Lightly spray a 9x9 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the caramel candies and half-and-half. Stir until completely melted. Add the sea salt. Leave on low heat while you prepare the rest.
  3. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add the marshmallows until they are just about fully melted into the butter. Some chunks of marshmallow may remain. Add in the cereal and stir until the cereal is fully coated. Gently fold in the salted caramel sauce and the snickers chunks until *just combined.* You also do not want the snicker's chocolate to melt completely or you will have completely chocolate treats, overpowering the salted caramel sauce.
  4. Pour mixture into prepared baking pan and gently spread out evenly. I sprayed the back of a large spatula with non-stick spray and gently pressed the mixture without packing it down. Allow to cool on the counter for at least 30 minutes before cutting into squares. Store in an airtight container to retain softness.

  1. Oh my, I think that drinking the salted caramel sauce plain would suffice for me, but then you threw it into these decadent, uber-gooey treats and I am SWOONING. Seriously. Stunning. I’m *typically* not the biggest Snickers fan, but there’s no way I could resist these treats if I saw a pan of them. Caramel is my weakness, and so are soft and chewy krispy squares. There’s nothing better!

  2. omg, the gooeyness of this with the caramel and snickers – wow, i love how there’s just so much caramel and salty/sweet goodness in this!! and it’s SO easy!! i love rice krispies and these are rice krispies on crack and i’m sure they’re addicting as heck!

  3. You know how to draw me in with the sweet and salty goodness!!! If the caramel wasn’t so hot, I would probably be guzzling it from the pan! I always use less cereal when I am making up rice krispie treats too…gotta have them be soft and chewy!!! And now I need them sweet and salty:-)

  4. Thanks for the linky love and this right here “stretchy strings of marshmallow, ribbons of salted caramel, melty chocolate, and crunchy peanuts…” THAT is exactly what I want in a RKTreat. I love love love RKTreats of all kinds but they HAVE to be gooey. I’d rather than gooey and fall apart than too dry with too much cereal and you put so much good stuff in them! I love that you used Snickers, too. A childhood staple to go along w/ a fave childhood treat that I love as an adult too 🙂

    1. i love plain ole RKTs so much but all the added goo and chunks makes them THAT much better. A random recipe that turned out SO well! LOL well…. how can anythign with salted caramel and snickers not turn out well?

    1. I’m not sure how I managed to keep them in the apartment without eating the entire plate! The smell of the caramel alone was particularly enticing. 🙂

  5. I love the pics with the gooey marshmallow all stretched out. If that doesn’t make everyone want to whip up these treats ASAP, I don’t know what will. I’ve never thought to warm them in the microwave before, but that’s such a good idea 🙂

    1. Hey Nicole!! They are definitely chewy krispie squares. and so soft! I like warming them up for only about 5-10 seconds or else I will have rice krispie treat mush!

  6. These are some of the best looking rice krispie treats I’ve ever seen, Sally! And I love your simple 3-ingredient salted caramel, I never would’ve thought to do that and now I need to try it. And yep, can’t go wrong with Snickers — I just mashed some up in some peanut butter cookie bars the other day, delicious. 🙂

  7. Hi Sally! I discovered your blog a few weeks ago and I love it! I made the gooey snickers rice krispie treats and cake batter blondies for a friends bake sale and they were great! This weekend I’m trying the rolo stuffed peanut butter cookies and am so excited! Thanks again for posting such great recipes!

    1. Hi Michelle! I LOVE these rice krispie treats. Probably one of the best rice krispie treats I’ve ever made! And the cake batter blondies – such an easy yet outstanding dessert, the rolo cookies are so much fun. So soft and gooey. 🙂 I’m glad you’ve chosen some of my favorites! Thanks for the comment, it means a lot 🙂

  8.! These look aMAZing! Snickers are my all-time fave so these are definitely on my to-make list ASAP! 🙂 Glad to have found you via pinterest!

  9. I love love these. I’ve made them 6 times since I first saw your recipe. They are also tasty with Milky Ways( my sis has a peanut allergy) your site is Awesome! Thanks for inspiring me!

    1. Hi Christi! Oh my goodness, I NEED to try these with milky ways! Genius. I’m so glad you love this recipe as much as I do – I need to make them again soon. Thanks for letting me know you love them!

  10. Hi Sally, I live in the UK where we don’t seem to have quite the abundance of baking goodies you have access to in the US but that’s not stopping me from trying out your recipes! Do you have a substitute for ‘caramel candies’? Could I possibly use fudge squares or make my own caramel? Thanks 🙂

  11. I made these today for valentine’s day tomorrow! I even molded them into little hearts! hopefully they will stay soft because i had to kind of press them into the mold and i didn’t have enough marshmallows. At first i thought i was using too much snickers when i was making them, but after i thought “wait, there can never be “too much” snickers” and then i went on my merry way. XD

  12. I like Rice Krispies, I love caramel, and I ADORE Snickers, so this recipe is definitely a goer for me!!! ;D Can’t wait to try them out!
