I just discovered Beth's Adventures in Cooking blog and there are some recipes that I just can't live without :) This is one of them, posted here for safekeeping. I will be using this one A LOT!
- unsalted butter, plus extra for the pan
- 1 (10 ounce) bag marshmallows
- 1⁄4 teaspoon coarse sea salt (heaping)
- 6 cups crisp rice cereal (Rice Krispies preferred, about half a 12-ounce box)
- Butter (or coat with non-stick spray) an 8-inch square cake pan with 2-inch sides.
- In a large pot, melt butter over medium-low heat. It will melt, then foam, then turn clear golden and finally start to turn brown and smell nutty. Stir frequently, scraping up any bits from the bottom as you do. Don’t take your eyes off the pot as while you may be impatient for it to start browning, the period between the time the butter begins to take on color and the point where it burns is often less than a minute.
- As soon as the butter takes on a nutty color, turn the heat off and stir in the marshmallows. The residual heat from the melted butter should be enough to melt them, but if it is not, turn it back on low until the marshmallows are smooth.
- Remove the pot from the stove and stir in the salt and cereal together. Quickly spread into prepared pan. You can sprinkle the top lightly with salt too if you'd like extra saltiness. Cool, cut into 2x2 inch bars and enjoy!
