Rice krispie treats are hands down the best treat on earth. They take 5 minutes to make 30 to harden and they are just as satisfying as any sweet confection that can take hours to bake and assemble.
This week for Sundays With Joy we did Joy the Baker's Brown Butter Peanut Butter Krispie Treats. It's a traditional krispie treat made with cereal, marshmallows but instead of just melting butter she browns it and adds a 1/2 cup of butter to the mixture. To add my own twist on her treats, I melted 1 cup of chocolate chips and smeared the tops of each treat and topped with salty pretzels.
I also spread my treats out a tad thinner using the biggest cookie sheet I could find. Reason?
The only complaint I have about rice krispie treats made in a traditional 9x13 or 9x9 pan is that they are too thick and require a lot of mouth action. To bite into a thick treat I cut the roof of my mouth up! They are too crunchy so I wanted them to be thinner to avoid tearing up my mouth!
To get Joy's complete recipe you will have to snag your own copy of her book Joy the Baker Cookbook: 100 Simple and Comforting Recipes.
