How to Make Strawberry Rice Krispie Treats
I LOVE the pretty pink color of these rice krispie treats. Of course there are several ways to make colored rice krispie treats including food coloring like in these Green Rice Krispie Treats or even Jello like in these red white and blue Rice Krispie Treats.
But these Strawberry Rice Krispie Treats are especially fun because their flavor matches their color!
Another thing I love about these is that they are SO easy to make. If you know how to make Rice krispie treats then you can easily make these as the process is the same – just switch out the cereal.
The first thing that needs to be done is getting the marshmallow mixture ready. You can do this on the stove in a pot or in a microwave safe bowl in the microwave.
The butter and marshmallows need to be melted and mixed together. The microwave is faster, but you have more control on the stove top.
Use low to medium heat in the stove. For the microwave, I start at 60 seconds and then do 30 second increments until completely melted.
Once your marshmallows and butter are melted, you need to make sure they are completely mixed together.
Here is when you make a slight adjustment to normal – add in Strawberry Rice Krispies instead of regular ones. Make sure you mix them in thoroughly.
Spread your mixture into a pre greased pan using a pre-greased spatula. Try to make it as even as possible.
Let cool for 20-30 minutes then you can cut and enjoy!
