Hey guys! So one of the things I’ve been busy doing this week is being super mommy and home making a bunch of treats for the kiddos and hubby. I went on a cooking/baking spree! At the end of the night I had cashew chicken (delicious and I will post later when I have taken photos!), muffins, Rice Krispie treats, and Apple pie bites! I was on a roll! I never have this much energy, and I’m just so excited that I’m writing up the Strawberry Rice Krispie treats recipe for you here 🙂
I had heard that making them at home was easy to do, so when I saw them on the sign up sheet for my little mans valentines party I jumped straight in. As I usually do, with little to no forethought or pre planning lol. I did, however, manage to coordinate both children’s contributions to their class parties (my little girl was having a class party too) so that they both brought the treats and therefore I only have to double the one dish. Win! Now, I just had to pull it off! Which was really as simple as promised for once!
- 10oz bag mini marshmallows
- Tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1.5 oz package of strawberry jello mix
- 7 cups of Rice Krispies
- 9×14 (ish) pan
Ok, first put your butter into a large pot to melt on low-med heat. As soon as it’s melted, add the marshmallows (once you’ve gotten your kids to stop stealing them) and mix them in the butter a bit. Then, leave it to sit while you measure out the vanilla and add that to the mix.
From this point on, you’ll want to make sure you keep stirring the mix gently until they’re mostly melted and then remove from the heat. Add the jello and keep stirring until fully melted.
Then, add the Rice Krispies and mix well. Don’t beat it, but you’ll need to make sure they get nice and covered. Then, spread out into your greased pan and let set for a few hours. I put mine in the fridge overnight so I could cut them up into squares and put on a plate for the school. I even ended up having extra (which the hubby was absolutely CRUSHED about. Lol)
Thats all! Super simple, and everyone loved them! What did you make for your valentines this year?
