My Christmas baking has meant that I have quite a few leftover ingredients that I need to use up - not turkey and ham, but sweet ingredients. From my Rocky Road, I had a huge bag of marshmallows which I had been guilty of eating from every time I walked past it, and from the White Christmas, I have an enormous box of Rice Krispies.
This combination of leftovers was begging to be made into Deb of Smitten Kitten's Salted Brown Butter Rice Krispie Treats - you can find the recipe and Deb's commentary here.
My rice krispie treats are pink because my marshmallows were pink and white - perfect for a girl's birthday party!
The mixture is very thick and reasonably hard to pat down, so I recommend taking Deb's tip of using a piece of oiled baking paper to push the mixture into the pan.
The resulting treats are delish - very light and sweet and crunchy. Kids would love these for their lunch boxes (if you don't mind the fact that they aren't really healthy).
I still have heaps of Rice Krispies left, despite using 6 cups of them to make these treats! I am searching for recipes that use both the rice krispies and milk powder, and am open to suggestion.
Have a great week!
