While stumbling along on the internet, I cam across this post for Browned Butter Rice Krispy Treats on The Merry Gourmet. It was a guest post written by Brian who has the great blog A Thought For Food .
At first I thought
“Rice Krispy Treats? Really?”
Then I read on and Brian said
“You may be thinking,
“Really, Rice Krispies treats? You couldn’t think of anything slightly more sophisticated?”
But before you judge, just try them.”
I have already made 3 batches of these fabulous treats and I will always make them this way from now on!
We loved the extra depth of flavor that browning the butter gives it. The vanilla bean makes these a bit of a splurge, but you can always use vanilla extract instead. Before, I would melt the marshmallows in the microwave, in a big bowl that was never big enough when I added the cereal. Making it in my biggest pot on the stove gives me plenty of room to mix everything up.
But you don’t have to save them for a special occasion.
I made them for the races, camping, and just because.
I hope you’ll try them.
For the recipe, head on over to The Merry Gourmet.
