Brown Butter {Pink!} Rice Krispie Treats

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

Who doesn’t love Rice Krispie Treats? I mean, really? They are sweet, gooey, and crispy and they bring you right back to childhood. I will confess that while I was still teaching, I enjoyed one or many of these if they were sent in by parents for a treat/snack. Guilty pleasure all the way.

These basically came about because I have marshmallow fluff staring at me and Rice Krispie’s leftover from these granola bars. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought that a pink version would be highly appropriate. 🙂
