Crafty Kitchen: Rice Krispie Treats for Adults
Looking for the perfect recipe to make for a holiday party? How about one that is delightfully nostalgic, seriously tasty and - this is the most important part - can be made in a flash? Enter Poppytalk's scrummy brown butter Rice Krispie treats.
What is brown butter, you ask? Also known as beurre noisette, it's made by slowly heating butter on your stovetop. I discovered its charms while making Nigella Lawson's brown butter cupcakes. Skeptical was I that simply heating butter would produce the nutty, subtle flavors Nigella promised, but I should have known better - the woman does NOT mess around.
These Rice Krispie treats are but another instance of brown butter being used to promote extreme tastiness. Make them for someone you'd like to get to know better this holiday season - they'd make the perfect gift wrapped up tight in some waxed paper and tied with a bow.Happy scoffing!
