I know there are tons of Brown Butter Rice Krispies Treats recipes out there but I had to share these because my kids absolutely loved them with the browned butter! I have another recipe for Rice Krispies Treats on the blog where you simply just melt the butter or margarine. Those are totally yummy but browning the butter just takes it to a whole other level! I first tried this technique in my Oreo Rice Krispies Treats and those are always a huge hit. Hasan took the Oreo Rice Krispies Treats last year to share with his classmates to celebrate getting 1st place in his speech competition. When I went to pick him up I had a swarm of little kids telling me how amazing they were!
Brown Butter Rice Krispies Treats
1/4 cup butter
1 jar marshmallow creme (7 1/2 oz)
2 tsp vanilla extract
5 cups Rice Krispies
In a large pot on medium-low heat, melt butter. We want to brown the butter. First it will melt, next foam. The butter will become a clear golden and then brown. Stir frequently and keep a close eye on it so it doesn't burn. Once you see the brown bits, reduce heat to low and add the marshmallow fluff. Mix well. Next remove from heat, add the Rice Krispies and mix well. Transfer to the prepared baking pan and spread. Press down firmly with a spatula.
Put in the fridge for 20-30 minutes. This will make it easier to cut.
