Hazelnut Marshmallow Squares with Brown Butter

Get weekly recipes and ingredients delivered.

We’re feeling lots of bake sale nostalgia for these puffed rice cereal squares, bound together with melted marshmallows and butter and cooled to crispy-chewy perfection. We elevate this old school treat by browning the butter until nutty and fragrant, then stirring in toasted hazelnuts for extra crunch. Cut into squares, or use your favorite cookie cutters to make fun shapes.
