Today, I give you the best rice crispy treats ever! No, really, I mean it! If you’re familiar with Rice Krispie Treats, you know that they can be overpoweringly sweet. These treats do not have that problem – think of them as the grown-up adult version; cool, sophisticated and ready to go to a dinner party.

So, what makes them so special?

  • We’ve added Miso, which amps up the flavour and umami, perfectly balancing the sweetness of the marshmallows.
  • A high marshmallow to rice and butter ratio – these treats are ultra gooey, sticky and have a melt-in-the-mouth soft texture.
  • Brown butter is our secret weapon and star ingredient in this dish,
  • Smooth and caramelly Caramilk chocolate adds richness and smoothness.
  • Finally, flaky sea salt aids in balancing the sweetness,  resulting in the perfect combination of flavours for a treat.

If you’re not in the market for large and heavy sweets, these refined treats can also be cut smaller and served alongside coffee when entertaining. We’re taking these treats out of the realm of kids parties, and breathing new, delicious life into them. Who’s ready to get stuck in?

Frequently Asked Questions

Why use miso?

Miso is an ultra-flavourful ingredient packed with umami. The miso will strongly complement the nutty, toasty, caramelly notes of the chocolate.

Why brown butter?
It’s no secret, I love browning butter. Brown butter is better butter. It’s far from a fussy and overly complicated step. Browning butter is a quick step that transforms the butter into a nutty, complex star of any dish.

I can’t find Caramilk, what can I use?

Feel free to substitute in your favourite smooth chocolate, light, dark or anywhere in between!

What is Caramilk?

Caramilk is a delicious, ultra-smooth caramelised white chocolate bar. 

Is this vegetarian?

Marshmallows are not usually vegetarian, so make sure to find a gelatine-free vegetarian/vegan marshmallow brand. 

Can I make this vegan?

You can indeed! Make sure to use marshmallows that do not contain gelatine or animal products, and use plant-based butter and chocolate in your mixture.
