Browned Butter Rice Krispie Treats

RECIPE: Browned Butter Rice Krispie Treats

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2/3 cup blanched slivered almonds
  • 1 package (10 oz) marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1 package (4 oz) chocolate covered dried cherries, roughly chopped
  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium low heat.
  2. Add the almonds, stirring occasionally, let the almonds and butter brown.
  3. When the almonds and butter are light golden brown they are done.
  4. Add the marshmallows to the saucepan, stirring continually, melt the marshmallows until smooth.
  5. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
  6. Place the Rice Krispies into a large bowl.
  7. Pour the melted marshmallow over the cereal.
  8. Using nonstick silicone spatulas or a buttered large spoon, mix the cereal and marshmallow until well coated.
  9. Add the chopped chocolate covered dried cherries, mixing quickly so the chocolate does not melt a lot.
  10. Scrape the treats into a 13 X 9 X 2 pan that has been buttered or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  11. Press the treats into the pan to make an even layer.
  12. Let cool completely before cutting in squares.
