Salted Browned Butter Rice Krispie Treats

rice krispie treats are a childhood staple. i'm almost positive that i've yet to meet anyone who doesn't like them.
they're crispy & chewy & sweet.

 & if you make them with browned butter & a sprinkle of salt they're also a little grown up. incredible, the power of butter....& salt.

Salted Browned Butter Rice Krispie Treats
You Need:
1 stick unsalted butter (plus extra for the pan)
1- 10 oz bag of marshmallows
1/4 tsp coarse sea salt
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Directions: Butter an 8 in baking dish. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Let it melt, then foam, turn clear golden & finally start to turn brown & smell nutty. Stir frequently whilst this is going on, making sure to scrape up the bits from the bottom of the pot. Watch it like a hawk because butter is a cruel friend who will turn on you in an instant.
Once your butter is brown & butty, turn off the heat & stir in the marshmallows. I alsmot guarantee you'll have enough heat to melt them completely, but if not- turn it on low & stir until melted & smooth.
Remove the pot from the stove & stir in the cereal & salt. Quickly spread into the buttered baking dish & press down with a spatula.

Sprinkle a tad more salt on top (if you wish) & allow to cool.

Cut into liberally sized squares & go to town.
Pin It!
