FAQs

How to store?

These treats are easy to store. Just place in an air tight container and keep at room temperature. After the treats are set, cut in bite size servings so they are easy to grab.
My kids love when I have a cookie/treat platter filled with their favorite treats after school.

Can you store in the refrigerator?

Do not place it in the refrigerator as it will make the Rice Krispie Treats too hard and no longer gooey. We like to keep out rice krispie treats nice and gooey so we keep them out on the counter.

Can I make different flavors?

Yes, it is fun to try different flavors to this basic recipe. We like to change the flavoring for the season, holiday or activity that we are doing.

This is the perfect dessert to make for valentines day. You can even use strawberry marshmallows or fresh strawberries for even more delicious strawberry flavor.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 3 cups Mini Marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 0.3 oz. Package of Strawberry Jello
  • 1/2 cup Large Red Sprinkles

Instructions

  • Spray an 8X8 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray or line the pan with parchment paper.
  • Place the butter and marshmallows in a large microwave safe bowl.  Heat it up in 30 second intervals and stir between each interval.  Heat until completely melted and smooth.
  • Then stir in the Jello mixture until well combined.
  • Then stir in the Rice Krispies cereal until the cereal is well coated by the marshmallow mixture.
  • Next press the mixture into the 8X8 baking pan.  I spray wax paper with non-stick cooking spray and use the wax paper to press the mixture into the pan so that it does not stick to a spoon or my hands.  Sprinkle the red sprinkles over the top of the Rice Krispie Treats and gently press the sprinkles down into the Rice Krispie Treats.
  • Set the pan aside and allow to cool completely at room temperature.  Do not place it in the refrigerator as it will make the Rice Krispie Treats too hard and no longer gooey (gooey is the best part).
  • Cut into 9 squares, serve and enjoy!
  • Store in an air tight container.
