They're so easy, taking under 10 minutes to throw together... no baking required, just one large pot and a large baking dish. That's really all it takes. A little arm action to get everything blended and you're done.
Brown Butter Crispy Treats
Recipe slightly adapted from Smitten Kitchen
4oz (1 stick) of unsalted butter
1 10oz bag of marshmallows (regular or mini)
1/2 tsp vanilla
6 cups rice crispy cereal
1/4 tsp sea salt
1. Butter or grease a 9x13" pan.
2. Melt stick of butter in a large pot, stirring until the butter starts to foam and develop a golden brown color. You should smell a nice, nutty scent off of the butter. Keep an eye on it because it'll burn fast. As soon as your butter is a caramel color, turn off the heat and pour in the marshmallows and vanilla. Stir until melted - you may need to turn the heat back on to low, especially if you used regular size marshmallows.
3. As soon as the marshmallows are smooth, pour in the rice crispy cereal and sea salt. Stir until combined then pour out into your baking dish. Flatten with your spatula or hands (careful as it may be hot). You can also take a lightly greased sheet of wax paper and press down on the top, but I didn't think it was necessary.
Let cool, cut, and enjoy!
