One of my favorite parts of the baby shower we hosted for Little Man was the dessert bar. We had lots of delicious treats and I wanted to share a super simple and super delicious recipe from the shower. My parchment & twine rice krispie treat presents!
The recipe is seriously simple--even for you toast and cereal masters out there. Trust me--even you couldn't mess this one up. So here it is, step by step.
1. At medium heat, melt one stick of butter in a deep no stick pan. Wait for butter to brown (it will turn clear, then bubble, then foam and then it will brown). You'll know the butter has browned when it starts producing a nutty aroma.
2. Turn off heat and add one bag of mini marshmallows. The heat from the butter should melt the marshmallows, but if you need to add more heat turn the stove to a low simmer and stir, stir, stir. It's a great arm work out too! Once the marshmallows have melted into a white fluffy goo, you pour in 1/2 a box of rice krispie treat cereal and mix it all together.
3. Butter a 9x13 baking dish and pour in your mixture. I like to then press down with a piece of parchment paper to smooth the top out.
4. Let cool and then cut into squares. Use parchment paper strips and wrap around rice krispie treats. Then, take a piece of twine and finish it off with a bow.
Viola! You have a super easy and delicious treat. Now, enjoy!
