Browned butter caramelized rice krispy treats

This recipe appeared in an article in the NYT food section this week. I tried it last night and I like them a lot. The browned butter/caramel flavor is subtle (I think I may play with it a little in future batches) but a big improvement over the plain Jane standard version (of which I am also quite fond).

The ingredients are the same, but you brown the butter then cook the marshmallows a bit longer. I think the proportions may be tweaked, higher butter:marshmallow ratio, too.

Yum. Had to get them out of the house this morning to save me from myself.

  1. Thanks for the input. Noticed the recipe and was curious.

    1. I just made these this past weekend and they were SO DELICIOUS. Amazing that such a simple little adaptation could take these so far beyond the standard recipe.

      I used 6 ounces of butter instead of the 8 recommended, 10.5 oz mini marshmallows and only a 9 ounce box of cereal. I thought that the ratio was fabulous, they turned out really crunchy and have a lovely carmelly flavor. A definite keeper!
