Dulce De Leche Rice Krispie Treats


This idea popped into my head the other day on my way to work.  Rice Krispie treats with a new twist.  I love Rice Krispie treats and I know they have been done several ways, but I don't think anyone has used dulce de leche before, so I wanted to be the first.

The combination of the dulce de leche and the white chocolate was fantabulous.  And with just that hint of semi-sweet chocolate...perfection!  They were a big hit in my household and also at the office.  I will definitely be making these again.  They are not too sweet and very light.  You can't help but eat more than one.

  2. My sister-in-law bought it at a Spanish market for me. I know William Sonoma sells a good brand of dulce de leche. I also found some on Amazon.com. My sister-in-law says the La Salamandra brand is good. It's from Argentina. Since she is from Argentina also, I trust her judgement.
