Chewy Brown Rice Brown Butter Rice Krispie Squares

The past few months, I have been craving for rice krispie squares. The last two batches that I made were somewhat disastrous but they still tasted good and we ate all of them within a couple of days. Every time I see rice krispies or marshmallows on special in the store, I think about making them again to see if I can improve on them. And of course to satisfy my rice krispie squares craving! :) This weekend, both rice krispies and marshmallows were on sale. Score!

My favorite recipe that I base my rice krispie squares from is on the Smitten Kitchen website. Each time I make it though, I don't measure things out and just tend to throw everything in and cheat where I can. Yup. And they turn out different every time. Who knew?! Haha. This time I decided to actually measure things out. Only for the blog, right?? Yes, only for the blog. I was careful this time and finally got the treats exactly how I liked them. The next step was of course to blog about them so that I wouldn't lose the recipe ever again :)

Warning: These treats are super chewy, totally fattening and highly addictive. Proceed at your own risk.




CHEWY!


Chewy Brown Rice Brown Butter Rice Krispie Squares
(Adapted from Smitten Kitchen)

1/2 cup butter
1 bag (400g) marshmallows
pinch of salt
6 1/2 to 7 cups brown rice krispies

Melt butter over high heat. Cook further while stirring constantly until butter is brown. It's important to stir constantly otherwise the butter will burn and leave burnt spots all over. Turn off heat and add all the marshmallows and salt. Continue stirring until all the marshmallows have melted. Add the rice krispies and stir until well combined. Pour into a square baking dish lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil and press tightly and evenly using the back of a clean spoon. Let cool before cutting.

Optional: After cutting into squares, dip one end into melted candy or chocolate and add sprinkles.
