Out-Of-This-World Rice Krispie Treats

Truth: I’ve eaten a lot of not-so-great Rice Krispie Treats in my life! At some point, I was determined to come up with a recipe that I loved … chewy, gooey, & flavorful!!

My Rice Krispie Treats are out-of-this-world because I use browned butter, a lower ratio of crispy rice cereal, and a French coarse grey sea salt.

One of my favorite places to eat these … backstage between symphony concerts!! Shhhh!! They pack well in my sack dinner, help me avoid the store-bought cookies offered to me {cause if I’m going to eat a treat, it better taste really good!}, & they make me happy!

Out-Of-This-World Rice Krispie Treats

I love Le Guerandais Coarse Grey Sea Salt in the recipe. At the time of me publishing this recipe, Amazon is selling it for a good price with free overnight shipping. You can also use Google to see what other stores are currently selling this special salt. At this time, I can not make any recommendations for salt substitutes, but I can promise this salt is worth the Amazon purchase!!


  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter
  • 2 -10 oz. bags of {fresh!} mini marshmallows
  • 8-8-1/2 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1 heaping teaspoon coarse grey sea salt (like Le Guerandais)


  1. Prepare a 9×13-inch pan by spraying it with coconut oil. {Avocado oil or butter should work great too!}
  2. In a large pot, melt two sticks of butter. Once the butter is melted, allow it to continue to cook on a low or medium-low temperature in order to brown the butter. Browned butter will turn a light-brown or caramel color, it will smell nutty, and have a thin layer of foam on top of the butter. Watch the browned butter closely because it can go from browned to burnt quickly.
  3. Remove your pot from the heat. To the melted, browned butter, add all the marshmallows & stir until all the marshmallows are melted.
  4. Mix in the salt & crispy rice cereal. Continue to stir the mixture until all the cereal is coated with marshmallow.
  5. Pour the marshmallow-cereal mixture into the prepared pan. Allow it to sit at room temperature for about an hour to cool. Cut into bars & enjoy! Store leftovers in an air-tight container or wrap leftovers tightly in plastic wrap.
