Skinnytaste Success Story: Mary Billiot

|I don't want to say that I don't like Rice Krispie Treats, it's just that they have never been one of my favorite desserts. I usually go for something that involves chocolate. But this summer I was at at Girls' Camp with my church and I walked into the cabin where the cooks were staying and someone offered me a Rice Krispie Treat. I never turn down food, so of course I accepted. I took one bite and demanded to know who had made them. Just kidding, I'm not demanding. I asked nicely. They told me Amanda made them (she was the head cook at camp). I asked why they tasted so dang good. They said she browns the butter. I thought to myself, "She's a genius." Why had I never thought of that?! Seriously, such a simple tweak to an already easy recipe, but such a huge difference in the taste. You gotta try these.|
2 sticks butter (don't be trippin' it's fine)
1 (16 oz) bag mini marshmallows
1 (12 oz) box Rice Krispie cereal
*Melt butter over medium heat, stirring frequently, until brown. This takes like 7-8 minutes so be patient. And don't burn it! Add marshmallows and remove from heat. Stir until all marshmallows are melted. Add cereal and mix well. Spread into a 9x13 pan or onto a cookie sheet.
