A twist on the classic Rice Krispies treats – strawberry flavor!
7 cups Rice Krispies
1 bag (10.5 oz) mini marshmallows
1.5 oz package (or half of 1 large 3 oz box) strawberry gelatin
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 tsp vanilla
Melt the butter in a large saucepan over low-medium heat. Add the marshmallows and let it sit for about 30 seconds. Stir gently. Add the vanilla extract and gently stir again. Next add the strawberry gelatin mix and stir gently again. Notice how I keep repeating “stir gently?” This will keep the treats lighter, not “tough.” Let the marshmallows partially melt but remove from heat before they are fully melted.
Stir (off the burner) until they are completely melted.
Add the Rice Krispies and gently mix.
Scoop into a 9×13″ greased pan and gently pat down with clean buttered hands. It’s VERY sticky!
Let cool/dry for at least 2 hours before cutting into bars and serving.
