Rice Krispies Treats might just be the ideal dessert. They require a minimal number of ingredients, take literally 5-10 minutes to whip up, and are inevitably a delicious crowd pleaser. For my sister’s Oscar Sunday get-together this past weekend, I decided to make a jazzed up version of the old standby by following Smitten Kitchen’s recipe for browned butter crispy treats with coarse sea salt. I was a little hesitant about the sea salt but all I can say is, YUM. It added the perfect touch to take these simple treats to the next level. Make these for your next gathering, book club meeting, or party, and you will for sure see them disappear in minutes.
My brother and sister gave them two thumbs up, and again: they literally took ten minutes to make, with four ingredients, and no baking. Totally ideal dessert situation.
