Salted Brown Butter Krispie Treats
Oh the Rice Krispie Treat. Bake sale classic, childhood favorite, crisp, chewy, gooey all in one- it’s hard to improve upon isn’t it? Well- last when I was traveling to Disney I spotted fancy one in the LaGuardia Airport: “Brown Butter Sea Salt Krispie Treat.” I almost bought it, but then Andy talked me out of it (I had already gotten pastries for the plane,) reminding me I could probably make it myself right? So I left that adventure for the first day we got him and here we are.
These are very close to classic Rice Krispie Treats, but totally upped a notch. The brown butter really makes a huge difference, giving a toasty almost nutty flavor. I’m sure you can imagine how great the bits of flakey sea salt sprinkled on top are too- I sure do love that sweet & salty combo! Plus these are just the easiest things on the planet to make- truly 10 minutes from start to finish and someone just so satisfying at the same time. Make them this weekend- and get ready to up your rice krispie game! (Plus they’re made with cereal so….breakfast?)
1- Use a fresh bag of marshmallows, stale old ones will make the bars tough and chewy.
2-It's important that you don't overcook the marshmallow butter mixture. If the heat is too high it will start to caramelize the sugar in the marshmallows with which also make the bars tough.

I love browned butter in my krispie treats!! But most importantly, these remind me that I need to make some krispie treats STAT! They are just so good!!
These look amazing!! We’re kind of on a rice crispie treat kick at our house, so I’ll definitely be giving these a try!! Thanks for the recipe :0)
IDK why it doesn’t occur to me to brown the butter in recipes that call for melted butter. It’s such a great idea!
I looove homemade rice krispie treats, and I love these with the browned butter and sea salt. Mmm!
Yepp. NEED to do this! The best thing to happen to rice krispie treats!
These are delicious! I checked my email, saw this recipe, and made them immediately. My new favorite way to make, and eat, rice krispie treats.
I’ve made brown butter krispies before and they are THE BEST. Good call on not buying them at the airport…I’m sure yours are better!
