The traditional rice krispie bar was a staple for much of us growing up. Classic rice krispie treat recipes get a new twist when topped with a rich, decadent dark chocolate ganache, and then sprinkled with coarse sea salt. It's the rice krispie treat- all grown up!

  3. Stir to coat the cereal in the marshmallow mixture and pour into your prepared pan. Press into the pan evenly and set aside to cool.

how many bars does this recipe make. I need the answer as soon as possible because I'm making them for a function tomorrow. Thanks

@pgibbs 8472509, The amount of people you can serve with this recipe really depends on how you cut them. But, a 13x19 inch pan typically serves an average of 12 servings. I hope this helps! --editors of RecipeLion

I did something similar to this in collage, but I mixed in a whole bag of chocolate chips, the best I've ever made.

Saved and on the schedule to make, wondering if I can make these with CARAMELS ?? The salted caramel desserts are high on my list of favorites !!!!
