Milky Way Rice Krispie Treats

I put these together  when my cousin Kelly and her son came.  They are rich and VERY good.
Milky Way Rice Krispie Treats

1 (14-16 oz.) bag mini marshmallows
6 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract, optional
5-6 C. Rice Krispie Cereal  Beth used the patriotic Rice Krispies
14 oz. caramels (about 45 little caramel squares)
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
6 Tbsp. butter
2 C. Chocolate chips

1. Grease a 9 X13 inch pan and set aside.

2. In a large microwave proof bowl (or in a large pot on the stove) melt marshmallows and butter together and stir until smooth. Add vanilla extract and stir again.

3. Add in Rice Krispie Cereal and gently fold until combined.

4. Dump into prepared pan and use a buttered spatula (or hand) to press the treats down flat.

5. In a small sauce pan, melt caramels, sweetened condensed milk and butter together over medium heat. Stir occasionally and until smooth.

6. Pour over rice krispies and let set, about 10 minutes or you can pop in the fridge to speed up the process.

7. Melt chocolate over the stove or in a microwave (you can add a little butter or oil if you want it the be thinner) and then pour over caramel layer and use a spatula to spread out.

8. Let set and cut with a warm knife.
