Oh my. It is amazing how one extra step in making the classic rice krispies treat can blow your mind. I am always down to make rice krispies. They are so simple yet amazing. I probably could down an entire pan if I let myself. I am obsessed with anything brown butter so I couldn’t wait to try it on rice krispies!

As soon as I had an ooey gooey bite I was hooked. The brown butter instantly gave this the amazing nutty flavor. How come I didn’t think of browning the butter before? These are hands down the best way to make them and became an instant favorite. I will never go back to making them any other way! They are the absolute best!

Ingredients

  • 5 to 6 cups rice krispies treat cereal
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 10 ounce bag marshmallows

Instructions

  1. Prepare a 9x13 inch pan by lightly greasing the bottom and sides. Set aside.
  2. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium high heat. Continue to stir until the butter starts to froth and turns brown and has a nutty aroma. Add in the marshmallows and stir until melted.
  3. Remove from heat and add in the rice krispies treat cereal. I like 5 cups so they are extra gooey but you can add 6 if desired.
  4. Press the rice krispies firmly into the bottom of your 9x13 inch pan. Allow to cool. Cut into squares and enjoy!

  1. These were scrumptious! I too may not go back to the ordinary way of making Rice Krispies treats. Of note, I made mine in a 7 x 11 pan, and I really liked the thickness of the bars. Thanks so much!

  2. I’m embraced to say I’ve NEVER made this insanely EASY dessert before! I’m REALLY glad I took the time to search around for aa recipe that added just a little something special. Browning the butter makes it SO yummy!! Now I’m rethinking sharing them 🙂
