Take your recipe up a notch and make these brown butter salted rice krispie treats.
This past November when I was visiting my sister to give her home a Christmas makeover, she made the most delicious brown butter salted rice krispie treats. I can not tell you how many I ate but let’s just it was A LOT. Okay, I ate more than half the pan. I love rice krispie treats but these were incredible. She’s terrible at giving directions because it’s always a little bit of this and a little bit of that so after much trial and error, I finally came up with the best balance of rice krispies and marshmallows. Here’s how to make your own at home so you can enjoy these amazing brown butter salted rice krispie treats.
Brown Butter Salted Rice Krispie Treats
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 large bag of marshmallows (16 oz)
- 1/4 tsp of sea salt (you can add up to 1/2 tsp)
- 7 cups of rice krispies
Step 1: Under medium heat, melt your stick of butter.
Step 2: Add 1/4 tsp of sea salt and with a wooden spoon, move around the butter until it browns.
Step 3: Once the butter browns, turn your heat down and add the bag of marshmallows.
Step 4: Once your marshmallows melt, turn your heat off.
Step 5: Add the rice krispies and toss it around until it’s evenly coated.
Step 6: Spray your 8X8 pan and move the mixture into the pan. Wait patiently for it to harden.
I love cutting them into extra big squares. I ate way too many while creating this post for you guys. It’s a hard job but thankfully, I’m willing to do it.
I also made some and put them into popsicle sticks and drizzled melted chocolate on them. I also got this idea from my sister. I can’t wait to give these to my kids today after school.
These make wonderful treats for a party or shower.
These are also perfect for Valentines Day.
For this Valentines Day, can I ask you to consider doing something sweet? Think of a single friend or mama or just anyone that could use a little encouragement in their life. Drop off a card, a sweet treat or some flowers to let them know that they matter and you are thinking of them. These little acts of kindness can be a huge blessing to someone else.
Have a wonderful day, friends!
Let all that you do be done in Love. 1 Corinthians 16:14
