Brown Butter Churro Rice Krispies Treats
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, plus additional for greasing the pan
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 package (10 oz) mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal, such as Rice Krispies
  1. Grease an 8 x 8 inch baking pan.
  2. Place butter in large saucepan on medium-low heat. Let it melt, then get foamy. It will then turn a clear golden color and then, finally, the butter will start to turn brown and smell nutty. Stir it often throughout this process and watch it closely, so it doesn't burn.
  3. Once the butter is evenly browned, turn down the heat to low and add the cinnamon and salt until fully combined. Stir in the marshmallows; cook, stirring often, until the marshmallows are fully melted.
  4. Turn off the heat and stir in the cereal (I find a silicone spoon works well for this). Scrape into the greased pan and press down—greased hands make this easier. Let cool completely, then cut into 9 huge treats or a more modest 16.
