Toasted Marshmallow Crispy Treats
Makes 9 squares
10 oz mini marshmallows
5 tbsp unsalted butter
5 cups Rice Krispies cereal
Spray an 8x8x2 pan with nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray and set aside. Preheat broiler and prepare baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large saucepan, heat butter on low heat, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, evenly distribute mini marshmallows across parchment paper and place under broiler for about 3 minutes, until the marshmallows are lightly browned. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan. Use a spatula to immediately scrape marshmallows into the saucepan with the melted butter (note: this can be sticky, but the spatula helps to get almost all of the marshmallows in their rightful place!). Keeping the heat on low, use a wooden spoon to stir constantly until the butter and toasted marshmallows become smooth and velvety, about 3-5 minutes. Once the butter and marshmallow mixture has reached this consistency, remove from the heat and stir in Rice Krispies. Transfer immediately to prepared square pan and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes before serving. To store, keep in an airtight container at room temperature.
