& 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
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.
