It’s sort of like wearing your favorite socks. No one else can see them, but they sure make you happy inside all day long.
That’s sort of how browned butter works.
Most of us are well aware that butter is an amazing thing. Well, browned butter is caramel-y, sort of nutty, and even more incredible. It certainly made these brownies to die for and it’s the way to take a plain old batch of rice krispies treats and turn it into something…well…fancy.
These are delicious. I’ve seen several versions floating around the web and sort of made up my own by combining them. I loved the flavor of the browned butter and the slight hint of saltiness. I don’t really know what else to say about them, but I will tell you, they are best eaten with your pinkie up.

- In a large saucepan, cook butter over medium heat until golden browned. Turn heat down to low and stir in marshmallows. Continue stirring until melted and smooth.
