Salted Browned Butter Rice Krispie Treats

I’m always looking for ways to not grow up. That’s probably why I try to incorporate hot dogs into every dish and still have a CareBears pillow case. In light of that, I was thrilled when I came upon this recipe. I made it for The Chef’s 28th birthday, and they were gone almost instantly. Brown butter + salt = dayum goodness.

1 stick unsalted butter
1 10 oz bag marshmallows
Heaping 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt (make sure to use coarse sea salt – in this case, Kosher won’t cut it)
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

  1. Butter a pan with 2-inch sides or line one with parchment paper.
  2. In a large pot, melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir frequently, scraping up any bits from the bottom as you do.
  3. As soon as the butter takes on a hazlenut color, turn the heat off and stir in the marshmallows and salt. If the residual heat isn’t enough, keep the burner on low.
  4. Remove the pot from the stove and stir in the salt and cereal together. Quickly spread into prepared pan.
  5. Let cool and cut into squares. (Or jam candles in it and make into the world’s largest krispie treat birfday cake.)
