This month I was assigned to one of my fave blogs, Veronica's Cornucopia. I love Veronica! I've been a long time follower of her blog for a long time now and love her recipes, writing style, and all of her posts (when I get caught up on them months later, sorry V!). Plus she has the cutest little baby boy, Joshua!!! You can really get a sense of her fun personality here, I mean her glossary is awesome lol. I tend to have my own Desi language too :) Her recipes are awesome... I've had so many on my list for awhile to try and have made some myself. This.... so tempting. I'm seriously making this salad asap.
I've been wanting to try her Brown Butter Pumpkin Spice Krispies Treats forever! But dang it when I went to my grocery store, they didn't have the Pumpkin Spice marshmallows :( Good thing I had seen another delicious rice crispy treat recipe on her blog too that I wanted to try... her Salted Brown Butter Crispy Treats.
Ok... brown butter. I feel like people should be shouting from the rooftops about it. Ok maybe I'm going a little overboard, but it seriously makes everything better! Main dishes and desserts alike.
Salted Brown Butter Crispy Treats
from Veronica's Cornucopia
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 1 (10 oz) bag marshmallows
- Heaping 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal (about half a 12-ounce box)
In a large pot, melt butter over medium-low heat. It will melt, then foam, then turn clear golden and finally start to turn brown. Stir frequently, scraping up any bits from the bottom as you do. When the butter takes on a nutty color and the solids have turned a golden-brown, stir in the salt & marshmallows.
Turn off the heat once the marshmallows are melted and the mixture is smooth. Remove the pot from the stove and stir in the cereal. Quickly spread into prepared pan. You can use a piece of waxed/parchment paper sprayed with oil and press it firmly and evenly into the edges and corners, or use a silicone spatula.
Let cool, cut into squares and serve.
These rice crispy (rice krispie?) treats are sooooooooo good. SO much better than your standard rice crispy. That brown butter really makes a difference and gives it this amazing flavor. And I love a little saltiness to compliment all the sweet in my desserts, personally. So these were perfect.
A little too perfect. I couldn't stop eating them! Now I've gotta make more and try those Pumpkin ones before fall is over too.
