I thought I’d let you in on the easy-but-impressive Rice Krispie treat cake secrets, and ALSO tell you how to make the most delicious browned butter, sea-salt Rice Krispie treat recipe…
Inspired by this post on Offbeat Bride, my buddy Jessica and I made a three-tiered Rice Krispie cake out of her famous browned butter Rice Krispie treats.
Here’s how you can follow suit and make one of your own…
What you will need:
- 1 stick of butter, plus an extra stick to grease up the dishes
- 2 boxes of Rice Krispie cereal
- 2 bags of large marshmallows
- wax paper
- 3 (or more) nesting bowls like these…
First, find three (or more) nesting bowls with flat bottoms. I think these are technically souffle dishes. You can find similar ones here. Then you have to butter the HELL out of them, from top to bottom.
Melt an entire stick of butter.
Throw in a few pinches of salt and stir it until the butter is browned.
Quickly pour the Rice Krispie mixture into a bowl, before the mix cools.
Using a piece of wax paper, press the mixture down, making sure to squeeze out any air bubbles.
Repeat the process with all the molds, and let them all cool off.
Once cooled, use a knife to loosen the sides of the mold from the bowls.
Using something like a wooden cutting board to soften the blow, turn the bowls upside down, bang them hard against the board, and the Rice Krispie mold should slide out.
Now all that’s left is to stack the layers!
