Salted Brown Butter Rice Krispies Treats

Someone reminded me of this recipe and it was perfect for a small get together we hosted. I actually made it twice because the first time my marshmallows were too old. It really did matter because I made the recipe the same way and the first time it became hard as a rock and was inedible. The second time it was perfect. So, make sure your marshmallows are still soft and fluffy (even though you’re melting them, the texture beforehand matters).

These taste strongly of brown butter and the salt adds another interesting note. I highly recommend this recipe because it is both easy and delicious!

Directions for Salted Brown Butter Rice Krispies Treats

From Smitten Kitchen

  • 1 stick butter
  • 10 ounces marshmallows (big or small)
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 160 g (6 cups) Rice Krispies cereal

Spray an 8-inch square cake pan. Then, in a large pot, melt butter over medium heat until it browns (it will go foamy and then turn golden). Stir frequently, then when the butter is ready, remove the pot from the heat.

Add the marshmallows and stir until the mixture is smooth. Turn the heat back on if the marshmallows aren’t melting properly. Stir the salt and cereal into the pot, then spread in the cake pan. Press it down firmly then allow to cool and set before cutting to serve.
