Valentine’s Day Strawberry Rice Krispie Treats

Valentine’s Day Strawberry Rice Krispie Treats

A few weeks ago, Nikki & I were at the grocery store when she spotted Strawberry Rice Krispies. Right away, I said “we can make Rice Krispies for the blog.” Nikki immediately replied, “With strawberry Smashmallows.”

Nikki went through a couple boxes before we actually made the Strawberry Rice Krispie treats. Shoutout to Target for having the family sized box that we found after she finished the first two. The only place we know of that has Smashmallows is Target, so we were surprised to see two of the four rows out of Smashmallows. They were having a 2 for $7 sale and were completely out of the Strawberries and Cream (that flavor is always in stock). We even walked to the Valentine’s section and couldn’t find any. A few days later, we tried another location & found them. Success!

If you’ve read recipes from GFS before, you know that we generally use as few ingredients as possible.

We really liked the way these Rice Krispie Treats turned out. Nikki felt like they were a little greasy and would probably use less butter next time. BTW, be careful putting them on paper towels because it might stick. Cutting them into squares was a little difficult; you may end up with rectangular pieces. They still taste good, no matter how you cut them.
