Gather ’round, Harry Potter lovers! Butterbeer rice krispie treats. Oh yes. OHHHH yes. I won’t ramble on except to say that butterscotch and browned butter are involved in these treats. Come on now.. you know you NEED to try them!
6 cups rice crispy cereal
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, browned
10 ounces marshmallows
1/4 cup butterbeer syrup (I used butterscotch ice cream topping)
1. Lightly coat cake pan(s) of desired size (I used 9×13) in cooking spray or melted butter; set aside.
2. In a large bowl, combine the cereal and butterscotch chips; set aside.
3. Combine the marshmallows, butter, and butterbeer syrupt (or butterscotch ice cream topping) in a large saucepan set over medium heat. Stir constantly until the marshmallows are completely melted. Stir in the cereal mixture until it is evenly coated with the melted marshmallows.
4. Once combined, press the mixture into the prepared pan(s). Allow to cool completely before frosting or serving.
