Your friend Aubree had a "pink-a-licious" party and so we decided to make some pink rice krispies treats. They were so good! I deviate from the original recipe by adding a little extra butter. I think it makes the treats taste better. I was expecting to make these pink by only using the food coloring, but after we got to the store, we found these strawberry flavored marshmallows.
I had to give them a try. Here's how we did it:
Pink Marshmallow Crispy Rice Treats
12 tablespoons butter or 1-1/2 sticks of butter
2 packages of strawberry flavored marshmallows
pink food coloring
12-1/2 cups puffed rice cereal (such as Kellogg's Rice Krispies)
Prepare the half sheet pan with plastic wrap sprayed with non-stick cooking spray; set aside. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add butter and let it begin to melt.
Add marshmallows and stir with butter until melted and smooth.
Add food coloring and stir to combine.
Pour in the cereal.
Stir with all your might to get it combined before the marshmallows start to cool.
Pour onto prepared sheet pan lined with plastic wrap.
Using another piece of plastic wrap sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, press down the treats.
Cover and allow to sit overnight on the counter.
Cut them into squares and enjoy!
These are so good! You could really taste the strawberry flavoring. But if you can't find these particular marshmallows, you can substitute with plain marshmallows, more pink food coloring and strawberry flavored extract.
