I don’t know about you, but I’ve evolved to love food trends. They keep you on your toes with exploring new ways to love food and sometimes they are just so good, they stick around! One of the more recent trends in the last few years has been brown butter. I’ve seen it honestly in anything and everything and while intrigued, I didn’t feel as though you could capture it with every recipe. The flavor can be lost depending on what you’re putting it in. However it absolutely works with vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies, and these Rice Krispy Treats!!
Believe it or not, while simple, you can easily mess up a good rice krispy treat. It’s supposed to be soft, flexible, and not a hard brick. If you cook the marshmallows on too high of heat too fast, that will effect the texture as well as adding too much cereal. I once thought well the more cereal the better, because they would be bigger. However, that’s far from the truth as you’ll just achieve a rock hard result. So lower heat, less cereal, and lastly, fold in whole marshmallows and flavor!
Initially I never thought to add flavor to a rice krispy treat. It’s sweet, crunch, why do you need more? Well, you do! By adding some sea salt, brown butter and vegan caramels, it completely alters the flavor, making it memorable.
What’s great about this recipe? All of it! It’s my staple rice krispie treat recipe, buttery soft, packs less cereal, notes of rich brown butter, a hint of salt, chunks of vegan caramels, they can easily be made in bulk, contain no animal products, are perfect for entertaining, and perfect for any season!
