The Best Brown Butter Salted Rice Krispies(R) Treats
October 09, 2017

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 treats. The one recommendation I do have is to use salted butter. The recipe doesn't specify which kind to use. I made a batch of this last night and couldn't figure out why the bourbon packed a bigger punch than usual because I made it exactly the same way every time. I finally realized that I used unsalted butter this time...I was shocked at the difference it made. TRUST ME - it will not be too salty; use salted butter! The recipe needs the salt in the butter as well as the teaspoon and extra sprinkle at the end to cut the sweetness of the marshmallows and to balance out the flavor of the bourbon.
