Salted Browned Butter Rice Krispy Party Treats with M&Ms #bakingideas

Happy Friday!  I'm excited to share one of my favorite easy treats to make using Milk Chocolate M&Ms, plus there's a chance for you to win one of three $250 Walmart gift cards at the end of this post!

I made these Salted Browned Butter Rice Krispy Treats with 
milk chocolate M &Ms for our son's 3rd Birthday Party recently.  
They were a hit!

The richness of the browned butter combined with the hint of saltiness, 
topped off by drizzled white chocolate and milk chocolate 
M&Ms was the perfect salty sweet combination.  They would be
great for a class party recipe, an office party potluck dessert,
or as a special treat just for fun.

Seriously, if you're looking to step it up the next time you make Rice Krispy Treats, 
this is the perfect recipe for you!  I bought all of the ingredients for these Rice Krispy 
Treats with M&Ms at Walmart while I was there shopping for all kinds of goodies and 
bunch of other stuff needed for Luke's Birthday Party.

Here's the recipe... 
Salted Browned Butter Rice Krispy Treats 
with Milk Chocolate M&Ms

1/2 stick salted butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
6 cups Rice Krispies
1/3 cup white chocolate for melting (I used Wiltons, but you can also use Almond Bark or 
white chocolate baking chips)
2 cups Milk Chocolate M&Ms

Prepare a 9x3 glass baking dish with non-stick spray and set aside. 
 Measure 6 cups of Rice Krispies and set aside. In a large pan, melt butter 
until it starts to become a dark brown color.  It gets a strong, almost nutty 
scent.  Add in marshmallows and stir constantly until thoroughly melted. 
Grind in about a 1/4 teaspoon salt.  Once mixture is completely melted, 
remove from heat and add in vanilla extract.  Quickly stir to combine.  
Stir in Rice Krispies until all cereal is coated with marshmallows.  
Pour into prepared pan, and using the back of a greased rubber spatula, 
press the mixture firmly into the pan until evenly spread.  
Allow it to cool for about 10 minutes.  

Now for the fun part... melt white melting chocolate in a bowl, then pour into a 
sandwich sized plastic bag.  Carefully snip off one small corner of the bag and squeeze it gently over 
the Rice Krispy treats to drizzle.Spread M&Ms over the top of the drizzled white chocolate.  Allow Rice 
Krispy treats to cool in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, until the white chocolate is hardened 
(but don't leave them in there too long or they will dry out).  Cut into squares.
