|Salted Brown Butter - Cinnamon Sugar Crispy Rice Treats|
Doesn't that look insanely good? It is BEYOND good.
I adapted a few recipes including my own to create this cinnamon sugar rice crispy treat that is beyond good. It’s made from Attune Foods' Erewhon cereal that is gluten-free and according to the Attune Foods website: “Made in a peanut-free, tree nut-free, dairy-free facility.” Read more on their website.

Recipe: Salted Brown Butter - Cinnamon Sugar Crispy Rice Treats
Adapted from smitten kitchen, Kitchen Konfidence and Well Plated
Cinnamon sugar for sprinkling
¼ cup sugar in the raw (or any sugar you like)
For the treats
4 Tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted organic butter, plus 1 T extra for the pan
1 10-ounce bag Kraft Jet Puffed marshmallows
1/4 teaspoon coarse Morton’s Kosher salt
5 ounces Erewhon Foods Cinnamon Crispy Rice Cereal (half a 10-ounce box)
Butter an 8" pie pan (any handy cake or pie pan will do depending on how tall your want your treats, I like my tall!).
In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, melt butter over medium-low heat. Keep your eyes on it - the time between when the butter solids begin to brown and the point where it burns is wildly fast. It will melt, then foam, then turn clear golden and finally start to turn brown and smell nutty.
(Here’s a video from Food52 about how to make brown butter – even though it’s French name is translates to nut butter there are NO NUTS involved.)
As soon as the butter takes on a nutty color, turn the heat off, remove the pot from the heat and stir in the marshmallows, one tablespoon [1T] of the cinnamon sugar mixture and the salt. The residual heat from the melted butter will be enough to melt everything. Stir until the marshmallow mixture until it is mostly smooth; I like leaving some lumps of marshmallows for a little textural surprise.
Stir in the cereal until all ingredients are incorporated. Spread mixture into the butter-prepared pan. (I use buttered hands to press treats into pan, works like a dream.)
As the mixture cools, sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixtures over the pan of treats. Let cool and enjoy!
