I’m not sure that I can allow myself to make these again. I think I ate 2/3rds of the pan by myself. They were really that addicting and delicious. These salted brown butter crispy treats played to my weakness – adding a little extra salt to the sweet. My Achilles heel. It’s why I keep coming back to the world peace cookies. . . Well. And the butter. It’s browned – another weakness of mine. Are you starting to sense I have a lot of weaknesses when it comes to food? Yeah. Me too.
I also don’t know that I have ever really made the original rice crispy treats before. Ridiculous, right? I always preferred making things all the way from scratch, even as a kid. What 10 year old makes cakes from scratch? Me. Even for bake sales. Well, these things are dang delicious. I mean really. The butter is melted in a pan until all the milk solids are browned and takes on this delicious nutty characteristic and then that sea salt. Ooooo. So freaking amazing. These play more towards the adult palette with the salt and browned butter but I’m sure no kiddo would refuse them. They are exponentially better than what you get in a box.
So the next step on these? I almost want to try making these using homemade marshmallows. Is that too much?
