Making the treats
These no bake treats are so simple to make, but let’s break down each step!
First make sure you line your baking pan with parchment paper, this will help it not stick.
Place your rice krispies in a large bowl. This is where you’re going to mix everything together.
In a medium saucepan brown your butter – the milk solids at the bottom of the pan will turn a golden brown. Add the marshmallows, salt and vanilla and stir until the marshmallows have melted.
Pour the marshmallow mixture over the rice krispies. Stir together to make sure all the cereal is covered in marshmallow.
Pour it into your pan and use an offset spatula to make sure the top is even.
In a small bowl microwave the chocolate chips with two teaspoons of coconut oil. The coconut oil will keep the chocolate shiny and stop it from crumbling when it is dry. Pour the melted chocolate over the rice krispies.
In a small bowl you can then microwave the butterscotch chips with the rest of the coconut oil. Drop dollops of the melted butterscotch over the chocolate, then use a knife to swirl it together. Sprinkle flaky salt over.
Put the pan in your fridge for at least one hour to set completely, then cut into 16 squares.
