2 Tbsp kosher salt/vanilla bean salt

2 cups Rice Krispies

How to Make

Preheat the oven to 350.

Place sugar, water and salt in a large sauce pan

Cook to 240 degrees over medium heat

Remove from heat. Pour the krispies into sauce pan.

Stir gently to coat with syrup

Portion the krispies in a single layer on a sprayed, parchment-lined sheet pan

Cook until lightly browned - 10 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes

Allow to cool and then gently break up any large clumps with your hands

Rosemary Pecans


2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon kosher salt

2 cups pecan (or other favorite nut) halves or pieces

2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary


Step 1

Stir the brown sugar, cayenne pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt into a bowl. Add the pecans and toss to coat.

Step 2

Transfer the pecans to a rimmed baking sheet and arrange in a single layer. Bake, stirring occasionally, until toasted, 10 to 12 minutes.

Step 3

Add the rosemary and toss to combine. Serve warm or at room temperature.

This pairs well with vanilla bean ice cream and a little caramel sauce.
