Brown Buttered Popcorn Krispie Treats
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup popcorn kernels
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • 4 cups Crisp Rice Cereal
  • ½ cup (1 stick) Salted Butter
  • 10 oz bag of large marshmallows
  • Coarse Sea Salt
Instructions
  1. In a heavy bottomed pot pour in the vegetable oil and heat over medium heat. Toss in a couple kernels to test the temperature of the oil. When they pop the pot is ready. Pour in the popcorn kernels and place a lid on the pot. Shake the pot often to prevent the popcorn from burning. The kernels should pop shortly. Once popped, immediately pour into a separate bowl and sprinkle with the kosher salt.
  2. In a large bowl combine the crisp rice cereal and three cups of the freshly popped popcorn. Set aside.
  3. In the same pot used to make popcorn melt the butter. Stirring often, continue to cook the butter until it turns a golden brown and has a nutty smell. Remove from the heat and add the entire bag of marshmallows to the pot. Stir constantly until the marshmallows are melted by the residual heat of the browned butter.
  4. Once the marshmallows are completely melted, fold the popcorn mix in till everything is completely covered. Scoop the mix into a greased 9x13 baking dish and press down so that the popcorn krispie treat is distributed evenly in the pan. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Allow to set for 1 hour and then slice into approximately 32 squares.
  5. Enjoy!
