Brown Butter Smore Krispies

M and I have been back and forth on a fire-pit for our backyard. I long for roasting marshmallows and sitting around the fire during a plain ol’ work week, let alone a Friday or Saturday night. Sometimes it’s the little things. I don’t know why I long for it. I don’t like marshmallows that much.

Either way, when I saw these treats on notwithoutsalt, they looked like the perfect cure. I forgot how easy no-bake treats are. In keeping with notwithoutsalt’s random acts of cookies I wrapped up two packages and made a few coworkers smile.

These are grown-up krispie treats, yet they are still gooey and delicious!

Brown Butter Smore Krispies

{recipe adapted from notwithoutsalt}

1 stick unsalted butter

8 cups of mini marshmallows

5 cups of rice cereal

9 sheets of graham crackers crushed (big and small pieces)

3/4 cup dark chocolate bits

In a large pan, brown butter and remove from heat. Stir in marshmallows and let sit. Crumble graham crackers. In a large bowl combine rice cereal, graham crackers, and chocolate bits. Stir marshmallows again until they are completely melted. You want the marshmallows to be cool enough to not melt all of the chocolate, but warm enough to combine.
