Brown Butter Rice Krispies

Easy, quick and delicious these Brown Butter Rice Krispies are perfect for a lunchtime treat or midnight snack. Gorgeous caramelized flavor from the brown butter and extra chewiness from the marshmallows!

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 16 Bars 1x


Units Scale
  • 4oz (1 Stick/ 8Tbsp) Butter
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 16oz Mini Marshmallows, divided
  • 6oz (6 Cups) Rice Krispies


  1. Place 10oz marshmallows in a large bowl and leave the rest in the bag and your rice Krispies in another large bowl set aside. Grease a 9X13 pan with non-stick spray.
  2. In a large pot over medium heat add your stick of butter and cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently until the butter has turned a golden brown with lots of brown specks. Add salt and 10oz of marshmallows to butter, stirring until melted.
  3. Once the majority of your marshmallows have melted add your rice cereal, mix that a few times, before it has completely combined add the remaining marshmallows in the bag.
  4. Continue mixing until every rice cereal is coated, you will still have chunks of marshmallows- thanks to the ones you just added. Pour into the prepared pan. And using a spatula press down evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and let cool for an hour before cutting.
