I did some magic this weekend. Not Harry Potter vanquishing Voldemort kind. Better. The making treats so good the ladies you live with actually inhale them. INHALE THEM. Thanks are due to a lovely lady who brought this recipe to my attention – she shall remain nameless, but if I had any left, I would bring her 5. You, too, can be a magician. The Final Countdown will play when you enter a room. The Magician’s Alliance will be beating down your door. But alas, they won’t be looking for me as I am about to reveal the secret sweet salty disappearing goodness. So unfortunately that makes me this guy.

It’s a price worth paying. You NEED to eat these treats – uh I mean – MAKE THEM DISAPPEAR! SHAZAAM! *Cloud of smoke and glitter*
Magical Salty Brown Butter Rice Krispy Treats, adapted from Smitten Kitchen
1 cup unsalted butter
2 10z bags of marshmallows
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
12 cups rice krispies
Step 1: Butter or pam 2 8×8 in square baking pans.
Step 2: In a large pot (like no jokes large), melt the butter and heat over medium low until it changes color slightly and has a nutty aroma. Remove heat.
Step 3: Add marshmallows to pot and stir vigorously until melted. Some additional heating on the stove may be needed to achieve this.
Step 4: Stir salt and rice krispies into the marsmallow mixture until combined.
Step 5: With clean hands covered in pam (you could be classy and try to use a spatula, but really this was way more effective), press the rice krispy mixture into the prepared pans.
Step 6: Allow to cool, cut into squares, and enjoy!
