addictive is all I can say
In a small sauce pan combine 1/4 pound of butter with cream and salt. Bring to boil on medium high heat wile constantly stirring with a rubber spatula
At this point you have several options on what to do with the mixture. you can make it traditionally and put it in a greased 9'x12' glass baking dish, or like pictured you can take a small scoop and a mini muffin pan and create mini cupcake sided treats.
While the Rice Krispies are still warm, make a slight indentation in the middle and place a pretzel in the indentation. next you will have to melt the caramels, place 10 unwrapped caramels in a microwave safe bowl and add 1 to 2 tsp of water. Microwave at 30 second intervals until completely melted.Once all the pretzels are in place, take the melted caramel and drizzle with a fork over all of the mini Rice krispie treats.
Next place 1/2 cup of Chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and melt in 30 second intervals, if it is to thick add a small amount of oil or butter. (not to much it won't harden if you do) Once it is melted drizzle the chocolate over the caramel drizzle.
This recipe can be varied in a number of Ways. I have given you the recipe, that matches the pictures shown. You can use chocolate wafers if you don't want to tackle the chocolate chips and butter. I also dipped my own pretzels but I have given you the option to buy the chocolate covered pretzels for speed and ease. if you decide to dip your own you will just need to melt more than 1/2 cup of chips. It is easier to start with a little and add to the chocolate, it melts easily and you can remelt if it is getting to hard. I used a fork to drizzle the caramel and the chocolate.
