In a large bowl combine rice Krispie cereal, freeze-dried apples, and pecan pieces. Whisk until well combined. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan, melt together the butter and marshmallows. Once melted, quickly stir in caramel sauce until well combined.
Pour marshmallow mixture over rice Krispie mixture and quickly stir until everything is well incorporated. Working quickly, pour the mixture into a greased 13-in by 9-in baking pan and smooth until level.
Allow to cool and set before slicing into squares. Drizzle with caramel sauce as desired.
* Use a greased spatula or bench scraper when pouring and smoothing final mixture into pan to prevent sticking.
