These rice crispy treats are the perfect thing to make when you’re feeling stressed. They have the same nostalgia attached to them as regular store bought rice crispy treats, but they’re revamped with brown butter, vanilla bean paste, and sea salt. Even if you’re not much of a baker, you should definitely try tackling this recipe.
Brown Butter Vanilla Rice Crispies
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 10 ounces marshmallows
- 2 tsp vanilla bean paste
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 6 cups rice crispies cereal
Heat the butter in a large pan over medium heat until dark amber colored.
Add the marshmallows, salt, and vanilla bean paste and stir until melted.
Add in the rice cereal and stir until completely combined.
Press into a greased 9×13 baking pan (I’d seriously recommend some parchment paper in the pan too.)
Allow to cool, cut into squares, and enjoy!
