As promised, I’m back with a delicious (and quick) recipe that’s perfect for back-to-school, fall, end-of-summer, and all days that end in “y.”
I’m still on my rotation that’s slowly sucking the life out of me but there’s only a week left so I think I can do it.
Given the time constraints, I haven’t been in the kitchen much (also, living next door to Whole Foods is pretty gosh darn convenient) but I have made these treats.
Simple and amazingly delicious, these took ten minutes to put together.
Also, thanks everyone for your cake suggestions! I’m still deliberating but I’ve narrowed it down to a select few and will be very excited to show you what I end up with!
And now.. naptime.
Brown Butter Rice Krispie Treats
adapted from smitten kitchen
I got 25 little snacks out of this.
1 stick unsalted butter
10 oz bag marshmallows
heaping 1/4 tsp coarse sea salt
6 c Rice Krispies cereal
Grease an 8-inch square cake pan with butter or non-stick spray.
In a large pot, melt butter over medium-low heat and brown until it smells nutty. The brown bits are welcome so don’t be alarmed when they appear. Do NOT take your eyes off the butter because it can burn really quickly. As soon as the butter browns, turn off the heat and add in the marshmallows. The heat of the butter should melt them but if not, you can turn the heat back on for a bit. Once melted, take off the stove and stir in the salt and cereal.
Spread quickly into the pan and let cool! It’s that easy!
