Last month I revisited a recipe for Salted Brown Butter Rice Krispie Treats. Man, I love that brown butter thing. Oh, I’m also kind of into the peanut butter thing. So, put them together in these crispy treats and we’ve got a bit of dessert heaven going on. And did I mention that prep is only about 20 minutes? Sahaweeeet.
Browned Butter Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 (10-ounce) bag marshmallows
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 cups crispy rice cereal such as Rice Krispies
1. Lightly grease an 8 inch square baking dish.
2. In a large, heavy pot, melt butter over medium heat. The butter will melt, foam, then become clear golden before finally starting to turn brown. Stir frequently and do not leave the butter unattended as it goes from perfect brown to burned very quickly.
3. As soon as the butter becomes a medium brown color, add the marshmallows, peanut butter, and salt. Stir until mixture is smooth and flecked with browned butter bits. Remove from heat and, working quickly, stir in the cereal.
4. Turn the mixture out into the prepared pan. Gently press the mixture evenly into the pan. Let cool and set for at least 30 minutes before cutting into squares. (Crispy rice treats will keep, well wrapped in plastic, at room temperature for up to 4 days.)

Here’s a short song.
“All is well all is right
Sweet child close your eyes
And say Good night”
And a sweet song with all of that parental love shining through.
“Of all the things that you might be
Most of all you’re
Dear to me”
