Brown Butter Rice Krispie Treats

Brown butter rice krispie treats transform the childhood classic into a gourmet gem, bursting with rich, nutty caramel notes and a touch of salty magic.

A sprinkle of sea salt gives this recipe the perfect balance of sweet and salty flavors.


– rice krispies cereal – mini marshmallows – sweetened condensed milk – sea salt – butter – vanilla extract

Line a 9x13” baking pan with parchment paper. If adding any toppings, layer them in the bottom of your pan now.


Brown butter in a saucepan over medium low heat, stirring occasionally. Once butter starts to bubble, turn off the heat and allow it to cook with the residual heat for a couple more minutes.


You want it to kind of caramelize, but not burn. Stir in the mini marshmallows (minus 2 cups that you’ve set aside), the condensed milk, and vanilla extract.


Once the marshmallows start to melt, remove from the stovetop and fold in the rice krispies. Add the salt and stir in the extra mini marshmallows.
