Equipment

  • 9 x 13 pan
  • food processor

Ingredients

For the rice crispy treats

  • 5 cups rice cereal
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 package strawberry gelatin mix (such as Jello), two tablespoons reserved (3 ounces) unprepared
  • 1 bag mini marshmallows (10 ounces)

For the frosting and strawberry crunch crumble (optional)

  • 10 golden Oreos
  • 2 tbsp strawberry gelatin mix (unprepared)
  • 2 tbsp instant French vanilla pudding mix (unprepared)
  • 2 tbsp freeze dried strawberries
  • 1 jar marshmallow fluff (about 7 ounces) May substitute Cool Whip, if desired.

Instructions

  • Begin by adding the butter to a large pot on your stove top.
  • Melt the butter on low and then add in the marshmallows. Stir gently and continuously.
  • Slowly stir the butter and marshmallows until well melted.
  • Add in the package of strawberry gelatin mix (saving two tablespoons for the crunch topping).
  • Gently stir until everything is well mixed.
  • Add the mixture to 5 cups of rice cereal.
  • Mix well and then pour into a well greased 9 x 13 pan.
  • Gently press the treats down. Too much pressure can harden them.
  • Let cool for one hour, preferably two hours.

For the frosting

  • Add the Oreos and freeze dried strawberries to a food processor.
  • Pulse until they are fine crumbs.
  • In a small bowl combine the crumbs, two tablespoons of strawberry gelatin mix, and two tablespoons of instant French vanilla pudding mix. Stir well.
  • Once your rice crispy treats have cooled for two hours, coat the top of them with marshmallow fluff.
  • Sprinkle the strawberry crunch topping on top.

Notes

I recommend adding the icing and strawberry crunch crumble topping right before serving. If you will not be serving all the treats at once frost and sprinkle them as you serve them.
