  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until golden brown and has a nutty aroma, about 5 minutes. Add marshmallows to browned butter, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring occasionally, until marshmallows are melted, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Stir bourbon and 1 teaspoon sea salt into marshmallow mixture and remove saucepan from heat. Add rice cereal to marshmallow mixture and mix until cereal is evenly coated with marshmallow mixture; transfer to a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  3. Place a sheet of parchment paper over rice cereal mixture and press into dish. Remove parchment paper and sprinkle flaked sea salt over the top. Cool treats to room temperature, at least 30 minutes.

This is the best rice krispies treat I have ever had!!! Trust me you need to try it. Nice spin on an old classic.

I loved these rice krispies were amazing. I used vanilla instead of bourbon and it was still wonderful.

I've made this recipe many many times, and each time it took all of my willpower not to gobble the entire pan immediately. Friends and strangers have approached me just to rave about these trea...

Good, not too sweet; however, some bites seemed saltier than others, and I don't think it needed the bourbon.
