Caramel Apple Rice Krispies Treats #SundaySupper

Caramel Apple Rice Krispies Treats

I eat dinner with my parents pretty much every single night.  Okay, so sometimes dad gets home from work really late and then eats like he’s the living embodiment of a tornado, but other than that we eat dinner together.

It’s a time to talk about our days, our pasts, and our futures.  There’s also background noise from the TV so we can catch up on the latest news and keep our brains young with Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy.  I know we shouldn’t have the TV on but I have misophonia – that’s a story for another day.  Plus, the TV never distracts me; Mom is another story.

The bottom line is that we make an effort seven nights a week to eat a home cooked meal together.  Sure, there are exceptions when we eat out, I meet friends or an online date, or we’re rushing around trying to get to an event.  However, these dinners and all that surrounds them are something I look forward to and miss after a day or two long detour from them.

The dinners aren’t always fancy and the stories aren’t always happy.  Some days we don’t have much to say, so we just enjoy each other’s company and take comfort in the fact that no matter what other things are going on, we can count on each other.

Caramel Apple Rice Krispies Treats

January is National Sunday Supper Month, and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of kicking it off with my Sunday Supper buddies who treasure family dinners as much as me.  We all want to encourage you to have a dinner with your family once a week.  Or if you can, more often.  To set the phones aside and talk to each other.

Try a new recipe, cook together, see what you like.  Things may not always turn out, but that is half the fun.  And then you’ll have something else to talk about.  While my dinners are typically just my parents and me, your family dinners can include any family and friends who you love and care about.  There aren’t any rules.  Just have fun and enjoy the simple things in life.

Caramel Apple Rice Krispies Treats

Well, I do have one rule.  There has to be dessert.  Sometimes it’s just a couple gummy bears and other times, it’s a real treat like these Caramel Apple Rice Krispies Treats.

They start with a Caramel Apple Oreo Crust.  If you can’t find Caramel Apple Oreos, use whatever kind you love.  Then there’s the classic Rice Krispies Treat on top.  It’s hard to improve upon that, but I think I did with dried apples and modjeskas.  If you’ve never heard of modjeskas, they are vanilla marshmallows wrapped in ooey gooey caramel.  They are a treat on their own, and in these … brace yourself.

This decadent treat fun to make and the perfect way to end a family meal.  Here’s to many more Sunday Suppers!

Caramel Apple Rice Krispies Treats

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 12 minutes

Yield: 9-12 treats

Ingredients

15 Caramel Apple Oreos, finely crushed

1 stick unsalted butter, divided

1 10 ounce bag marshmallows

3 ¼ cups Rice Krispies

Heaping ½ dried apples, diced

6 modjeskas or soft caramels, chopped

Instructions

Line an 8 inch square pan with parchment.

Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in the microwave. Add to the crushed Oreos and stir to combine. Pour into the prepared pan and press firmly into place. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.

Once the crust is set, melt the marshmallows and remaining 4 tablespoons butter in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between. Once melted, stir to combine the marshmallows and butter. Stir in the Rice Krispies, adding a few more if necessary until the mixture is gooey but not liquidy. Fold in the dried apples and modjeskas.

Pour on top of the crust. Oil or butter your hands and press down firmly. Refrigerate for an additional 30 minutes before cutting and serving. Treats may be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days or frozen, wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature about 1 hour.

Notes

Addtional chilling time is necessary

    • Laura says:

      I’m an Oreo fanatic. They have Caramel Apple, Pumpkin Spice, Gingerbread, I hear they are coming out with a cinnamon roll one. Oh, and the caramel marshmallows are such a treat – they are a classic dessert from Kentucky.

  9. My dad always has to have something sweet after dinner, too. I bet he’d like these!

  10. I love sitting down as a family for dinner, as often as possible. I also think it’s great to find a fun new recipe and I have no doubt my 9 year old will love helping me with this one!
