Things I need in my life

Salted Brown Butter Crispy Treats

Things I need in my right now.  Salted Brown Butter Crispy Treats.  What?  I think it is a valid need.  At one time (last week) the thing I needed in my life were make these crispy I really feel I've grown and moved on.  What??  I'm feeling a little judged here.  Wait, that could just be my conscience.  Is everyone else's conscience this loud?  Sheesh.  That's okay, I'll just turn up the music and drown it out. 

Now then, where was I?  Oh yes, I have needs.......

And it just so happens my needs involve gooey melty marshmallows combined with crispy rice cereal.  (At least at this moment in time.)  I feel a "Homer Simpson" moment coming on. 

These treats are based on a recipe from the Smitten Kitchen. (Deb rocks!)  If you haven't been to her site, you really should hop over.  She inspires me.

 Crispy cereal say hello to puffy marshmallows.
 The marshmallows pick up the brown butter bits once melted....oooh.....ahhhh....mmm

Easy Breezy Beautiful Rice Crispy Treats!  The addition of browned butter and salt is crazy good.

I don't think one ever outgrows a rice crispy treat. (Thank goodness for that.)




  1. Oh, I love Rice Krispy treats too. Hmmm...I might just need to go make some myself!

  2. You hit the nail on the head with the Homer reference!

  3. Oh my, these sound dangerous to me. I can't wait to try them. Sweet and salty are my favorite combos. I just discovered this salted caramel gelato (Talenti) and well, I love it and my hips, well....

    Thanks for the visit and kind words about my card. Enjoy the weekend!
