Browned Butter Rice Krispie Treats

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.

Recipe:

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.
