I don't even like rice crispy treats but they sell well at bake sales and I am running a snack table tomorrow at school. So I decided to tinker with a fast money maker for the table. I tried these http://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/11... Caramelized Brown Butter treats event though I had the Smitten Kitchen page open that dissed them. (Doh! Didn't realize it was the same recipe!) The recipe uses a lot more butter than usual and double the cereal so I was thinking less sweet! buttery! hurrah! I failed to think about the consequences of less glue on tiny cereal clusters. I used an entire package of Kerrygold butter on them and don't want to throw them away.
So I have a pan of rice crispy treats, that are very flavorful and buttery (brown butter, cooked marshmallows, vanilla) but just too loose to cut and serve. I don't want them sweeter. 8X10 pan, filled to the brim
Ideas? Target audience is kids and adults who don't want them to eat a super sweet treat. Also, I can't sell them for more than $1 so I can't spend a ton of money on the fix.
Ideas?As soon as I realized the problem I made a second batch according to Smitten and those will be fine.
