Salted Browned Butter Rice Krispie Treats

I don’t have much of a sweet tooth. I like desserts, but I don’t crave them like some people do. If I bake a cake, I usually wind up throwing most of it away a week or two later. I love creme brulee, but only once in a while. Cheesecake? Occasionally, and I prefer it to be tart.

However, throw some salt into the mix, and I’m a goner.

Anything with the magical mix of sweet and salty I will eat until I’m sick. I love it. Love love love.

These rice krispie treats are one of the ultimate (and easy) treats. Crunchy, chewy, salty, sweet: I’m in heaven.

Brigadeiroooooooo

Sounds better if you picture a hot Brazilian saying it. 
This is one of those recipes that I keep seeing on various sites, and never have quite gotten around to making. Until today, that is. Luckily I had all of the ingredients on hand, so let the good (fattening) times roll!

Brigadeiro

1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tbsp butter

Mix these ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Pour into another container and stick in the fridge to cool.
Then you can pretty much do whatever you want with it. Traditionally it’s formed into balls and rolled in sprinkles as a candy. Or… eaten straight out of the container with a spoon. Which I’m pretty sure is what I’m going to be doing. It took every ounce of will power for me to not burn my mouth by eating it right off the stove. It also made my apartment smell delicious. WIN.
