Whaaa? I signed on for macarons and baking then she gives me something off a cereal box?!? Not so quick my friends – these are simple, yes, but they just might rock your world. You see, the B.S. stands for brown butter and sea salt! Kids still love these but they are amazing enough to thrill adults as well. The brown butter smells fantastic and they get better over time.

B.S. Rice Krispie Treats, Makes about 24

1 stick of unsalted butter

1 bag of mini marshmallows

Sea salt for sprinkling

1 14-oz box Rice Krispies cereal (or any puffed rice cereal)

Heat the butter in a pan on medium until it starts to brown. See the tan part in the middle?


Remove from heat and stir in the marshmallows until smooth.


Put the cereal in a bowl and stir in the marshmallow cream.


Pat the mixture into a greased sheet pan and sprinkle with sea salt to taste. Let stand in a cool place until firm. Cut into 3″ squares and serve. Store leftovers in an airtight container. Caution – these are highly addictive!
