 18125896 - homemade marshmallow crispy rice treat in bar form

My husband's mother was revered for her Marshmallow Crispy Bars, and my attempts have always been found wanting in the eyes of my family.  What is remarkable is that Mary did this in Iowa, land of 90% summer humidity, where a box of cereal had to be eaten in the same week it was opened or go stale.   Two years ago, I learned that I had gluten intolerance, and this once a week chocolate chip cookie maker had to set her eyes elsewhere for sweet treats.  With this diagnosis, I found my inspiration to figure out the secrets Mary would never divulge. Actually, I think she'd be proud.

NO FAIL Crispy Rice Bars

1/3 cup butter browned--heat on high while watching carefully until browned and a nice caramel smell emerges
