4 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
3 tablespoons butter
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
11 ounces Kraft caramels, unwrapped
2 tablespoons milk
Coarse sea salt, for sprinkling

Prepare the Dish:
Prepare a 9×13-inch glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
Make the Marshmallow Mixture:
In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the butter and marshmallows. Microwave on high for 1 minute and 15 seconds, until marshmallows are melted and puffed up; stir until smooth.
Mix with Cereal:
Mix the melted marshmallows with the Rice Krispies cereal in a large bowl. Press the mixture evenly into the prepared dish.
Prepare the Caramel Sauce:
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, mix the caramels and milk. Microwave on high for 1 minute and 20 seconds. Stir until completely smooth, heating in 10-second increments if needed.
Assemble the Treats:
Pour the caramel sauce over the Rice Krispies treats. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Allow to set at room temperature for 15 minutes, then cut into 16 bars and serve.

Use fresh marshmallows for the best texture.
For a thicker caramel layer, add an extra ounce of caramels and a splash of more milk.

Enjoy the delicious blend of sweet caramel and a touch of sea salt in these gourmet Rice Krispie treats!
