Nostalgic, sticky treats, amped up with nutty browned butter and sea salt.

What sorcery is this?

This is sweet, salty, nutty, sticky, soft, retro, irresistible, sorcery.   And that's a fact, Jack!

The teensy weensy little detail of browning the butter and tossing in just a spurt of sea salt, before adding the marshmallows and cereal, changes everything. Divinely.

First bite makes your taste buds smile with that ol' familiar, tasty-treat pleasure. 

Ahhh, but then, those tiny, sublime differences kick in and there's no looking back. 

These treats are simply, just so good.  And, of course, crazily easy to make. 

Come on, you know you waaahnt to........I double dog dare you!

BROWN BUTTER RICE KRISPIE TREATS - Makes about 20 square-ish treats

1/2 cup butter, plus extra for pan
Heaping 1/4 teaspoon sea salt or pink Himalayan salt (be generous)
1, 10-ounce bag mini marshmallows (6 cups)
6 cups Rice Krispies (about 1/2 a 12-ounce box)

Thoroughly butter a baking sheet.

In a large pot, melt butter over medium to medium-low heat.  It will melt, then foam, then turn clear golden and finally start to turn brown and smell nutty.  Add sea salt.  Stir frequently, scraping up any bits from the bottom as you do.  Don't take your eyes off the pot as while you may be impatient for it to start browning, the period between the time the butter begins to take on colour and the point where it burns is often less than a minute.

As soon as the butter takes on a nutty color, reduce heat to low and stir in the marshmallows. Continue stirring until marshmallows are melted and smooth.

Remove the pot from the stove and gently fold in the cereal, until combined.  Turn the mixture onto the buttered baking sheet and press flat with your hands.  As you press the mixture together, create an outside edge with a spatula.
