Neapolitan Rice Krispies Treats

Ingredients

6 Cups Rice Krispies

60 Marshmallows

4 ½ Tbsp Butter

¼ Cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips

1 oz Package Freeze Dried Strawberries

(optional red food coloring)

Directions

Grease an 8x8 in square pan with butter or line it with parchment paper.

Put 1 ½ tablespoons butter and 20 marshmallows in a large saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat stirring frequently until the marshmallows and butter are completely melted.

Add in the chocolate chips and continue heat stirring until the chocolate chips are completely melted and thoroughly incorporated in the marshmallow mixture. Remove from heat and fold in two cups Rice Krispies cereal until evenly coated.

Press the cereal mixture into the bottom of your prepared pan. Coat your hands with butter so that the mixture doesn’t stick. You can also use a spatula if you don’t want to use your hands, spray it with non stick cooking spray to keep it from sticking, or you can use a piece of wax paper.

In a clean pan melt another 20 marshmallows and 1 ½ Tbsp butter over medium heat stirring frequently until the marshmallows and butter are melted completely. Add in vanilla extract and stir until well incorporated. Remove from the heat and add in 2 cups of rice krispies and stir until the cereal is completely covered. Pour the mixture evenly across the top of your chocolate layer, and press firmly and evenly into place.

Place the freeze dried strawberries in a food processor and process until very finely ground.

In a clean pan mix together the last 20 marshmallows and 1 ½ Tbsp of butter and melt over medium heat stirring frequently. Once melted stir in ground strawberries until well incorporated. If a deeper red color is desired you can add a few drops of red food coloring. Stir until well mixed.

Add in the final 2 cups of rice krispies and stir until completely coated.

Press the strawberry layer on top of your vanilla layer, pressing firmly and evenly with buttered hands or a spatula.

Allow the treats to cool completely before cutting. If you've lined the pan with parchment you can lift them out and place them on a cutting board to cut into even pieces.

Cut into 9 squares and enjoy! You can cut them into smaller squares if desired. Store in an air tight container.
