Last Sunday, after a day at the beach with my boys we came home, showered, and went out for frozen yogurt. Before the frozen yogurt we stopped in to Barnes & Noble to get some new books.
While we were there I picked up a a coffee at their cafe (hello Starbucks), and in amongst their treats was a delectable rice crispy treat.
My son Evan loves marshmallows and when he asked if he could have a treat I obliged, because he’s not so much of an ice cream eater.
It was such a cute little treat, sprinkled in were whole marshmallows. More importantly it tasted good.
Yesterday he asked me if I could make him a rice crispy treat like the one he had and I told him I would. A quick stop in to the supermarket and ten minutes at the stove resulted in a delicious treat.
The recipe I used was for a Brown Butter Vanilla Bean Rice Krispy Treat I discovered last summer. The only thing I did differently was add in some whole marshmallows just before I poured the mixture.
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 10.5 ounce bag of miniature marshmallows
- ½ tablespoon vanilla bean paste (you can use an actual vanilla bean)
- 5 cups Rice Krispies cereal
In a large saucepan melt butter over medium-low heat for 5-10 minutes until it turns a golden brown color.
Next add in the marshmallows and stir until they’re melted.
Remove pan from heat and mix in cereal.
Press in cereal mixture into a buttered 9×9 baking dish.
Allow to cool, cut into squares and serve.
