I’ve had a jar of strawberry marshmallow fluff sitting in my cupboard for months now. I’d never seen it before, so when I spotted it in the store, I immediately grabbed it thinking I would make something really creative with it. Month after month it sat in the cupboard mocking me while I made grilled cheese sandwiches, parsley cake, basil ice cream and graham cracker cookies.
Finally the other night I was sitting on the couch finishing up a cheese sandwich, craving something sweet. Usually, we keep a Ritter Sport (shortbread cookie covered in chocolate) in the fridge, but I haven’t been to the store for a while, so I was out of luck. Or so I thought. I opened my cupboard and saw the jar of strawberry fluff. I quickly went to the other cupboard to see if I had any rice krispies and I did. Finally, this jar was going down! I may not have made something super creative, but I did make a very satisfying batch of strawberry rice krispies treats. The only thing missing were the marshmallows from a box of Lucky Charms. That would have been awesome.
Strawberry Rice Krispies Treats
- 1 jar of strawberry marshmallow fluff
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 5 cups rice krispies
In a large pot over low heat melt the butter. Add the marshmallow fluff and thoroughly combine until smooth. Remove from heat and add the rice cereal one cup at a time.
Press into a lightly greased 8x8 pan (you can use whatever size you like). Let cool completely. Cut into squares.
