Make these right now, I'm not even joking.
Sorry about the bossiness, but you'll thank me later.
Salted Brown Butter Rice Crispy Treats
from Smitten Kitchen
1 stick (4 oz.) unsalted butter
1 10-oz bag marshmallows (the small ones probably melt faster than the jumbo..)
Heaping 1/4 tsp coarse sea salt
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal (about half a 12-oz box)
- Line an 8-inch square cake pan with 2-inch sides with wax paper. You can also butter/grease it if you prefer.
- In a large pot, melt and brown the butter. Watch it carefully to prevent burning. As soon as the butter gives off a nutty aroma, turn off the heat and stir in the marshmallows. Stir and mix until smooth. (You may need to turn the heat back on low if the marshmallows won't melt to a smooth consistency.)
- Remove the pot from the stove and stir in the salt and cereal together.
- Spread the mixture into the prepared pan, using a piece of wax paper, greased parchment paper, or a silicone spatula to press it into the edges and corners. Let cool before cutting into squares.
