These lovelies are such a classic.

Crispy rice cereal mixed in with melted butter and marshmallows?! Who can refuse?

Not me!

Today’s recipe is a nice twist on the classic rice krispies treats. They are made with browned butter and a sweet cinnamon/sugar mixture. They are gooey and soooo good.

Here’s a few things to note:

  • This recipe is made in a 9 x 9 pan, instead of the traditional 9 x 13. If you don’t have a 9 x 9 pan, the 9 x 13 will work just fine. Your bars will just be a bit thinner than what is picture.
  • Don’t be intimidated by browning the butter! Just be sure to keep a close eye on the butter and don’t let it get too dark or it will burn. If possible, use a pan with a light colored bottom, so, you can keep track of the color more easily.
  • If by chance, you don’t want to brown the butter, that’s ok too. Just melt the butter normally and follow the recipe as noted.

4. Be sure to press the sugar/cinnamon mixture firmly on to the top of your bars. If you don’t it will all just come sliding off when you eat them 😉

5. Spray your knife with a little non stick cooking spray when cutting the bars. These are gooey, so, it just makes the whole process a bit easier.

Gooey and packed with cinnamon! These Browned Butter Cinnamon Rice Krispsies Treats are a fun, simple and have all the greats flavors of a snickerdoodle cookie, along  with a distinct nutty flavor from the browned butter.

These is also no baking required for these…makes them perfect for summer.  👍 ☀️

Enjoy!
