We had a lovely Mother’s Day with steak and all the fixings! I made these for fun and I regret it just a little bit because I ate way too many! Since I’ve been trying to eat more healthy this was not the smartest thing to make, but they are so good and worth every calorie.

My mom always loved rice krispies and they were always so good, these are better. If you want to know this very addicting recipe read below. 


Best Browned Butter Rice Krispies Treats


  • 12 tablespoons salted butter, plus more for greasing the pan
  • 20 oz mini marshmallows, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 1/2 cups Rice Krispies or crispy cereal

  1. Line a 9 x 13-in pan with heavy duty aluminum foil and lightly grease with softened butter. Set aside 2 cups of the marshmallows.
  2. In a large pot or Dutch oven, preferably with a light bottom so you can monitor the color, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir constantly to be sure the butter is cooking evenly.
  3. As the butter melts, it will begin to bubble and foam, and the color will progress from bright yellow to golden to, finally, a toasty-brown. Once you smell that nutty brown butter aroma, take the pan off the heat. 
  4. Off the heat, add the remaining marshmallows, vanilla, and salt.
  5. Place the pot back over low heat and stir the mixture with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until the marshmallows are completely melted. Remove the pan from the heat and add the cereal. Using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, stir until evenly combined.
  6. Add the reserved marshmallows and stir until they are softened and partially melted. Don’t overmix; you want pockets of goo. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and, using the butter wrapper or damp fingers, press the mixture gently into an even layer in the prepared baking pan. Let cool at room temperature for at least an hour.
  7. Use the foil overhang to lift the treats onto a cutting board, then use a serrated bread knife to cut into squares.
