Who ever said pink is only for Valentine’s Day? It’s recently been brought to my attention that the color pink is taking over my life. For a not so girly-girl, I laughed it off. Then I looked at my wardrobe, cell phone case, the nail polish I had on (my toes are almost always painted pink), my gym bag, and the fleece I wear when it’s warm out. All pink! Oh geez, guess I better stop saying I don’t like girly things. When I start seeing glitter on all my things, then I’ll really start to worry. Until then, I make Rice Krispy Treats.
3 tablespoons butter
1 package of marshmallows (10 ounce bag)
1/4 cup of dried strawberries, crushed (leave some big bits though)
Red food coloring
6 cups of Rice Krispies
1/4 cup of white chocolate chips
In a large sauce pan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows until completely melted. Remove from heat and fold in 1/4 cup of dried strawberries and two to four drops of red food coloring to make it pink.
Add in Rice Krispies, stir until completely mixed in evenly. Press mixture into a buttered pan.
In a small bowl, melt white chocolate in microwave. Heat in 20 second intervals until you can stir it smooth. Add a few drops of red food coloring to make it pink. spread it over the Rice Krispy treats. When cool, cut and serve. Keep in airtight container and best eaten the same day.
