Strawberry Shortcake Rice Krispies Treats

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Strawberry shortcake is definitely a winner when it comes to fresh summer flavors. However, creating that flavor combination of tart strawberries, sweet whipped cream, and buttery shortcake isn’t always easy. For a quick, easy, and pretty delicious shortcut, try strawberry + white chocolate!  It might not be the classic, but it’s dang close!

Last summer, I made these Watermelon Rice Krispies Treats, using a similar recipe.  Check them out!

What you need:

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 10z (about 40) large marshmallows OR about 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • 4 tablespoons Strawberry Jell-O
  • 5 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 2 cups Rice Chex
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • white chocolate for drizzle

Make them:

Prepare a 13×9″ pan by  laying down wax paper and lightly spraying it.

In a large pot over medium-low heat, melt the butter, marshmallows, and Jell-O.

Once melted, immediately take off heat.

In a large bowl, combine all cereals and white chocolate chips, and carefully mix until combined.

Pour cereal mix into marshmallow mixture pot, and carefully combine.

Using a buttered or sprayed spatula, evenly pat down the mixture in the 13×9″ pan.

Drizzle with melted white chocolate, and let set until it reaches room temperature.

Cut into squares, and enjoy!
