The closer we get to summer, the more weddings, birthdays and other parties we end up going to. This year, our celebrating season kicked off with one of my best friends getting married. The ceremony was in the evening so I volunteered to put together lunch for the bridal party to munch on while getting ready – and these sweet treats capped off the meal.
Krispie treats have been a favorite around here lately. They’re quick and easy enough that I can throw them together during nap time and I’ve been finding the basic recipe is really easy to switch up to keep things from being too routine. For this one, I used flavored marshmallows and mixed in some chocolate chips. The result is a cross between a chocolate covered strawberry and a krispie treat – so good!
To get these started, you only need four ingredients. they couldn’t be easier!
Strawberry Chocolate Chip Krispie Treats
- 4 Tbsp. butter
- 12 oz. strawberry-flavored marshmallows
- 6 cups crisped rice cereal
- 1 1/4 semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Grease a 9x13" pan well and set aside.
- In a large pot, melt the butter oven medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until smooth and melted. Stir in crisped rice cereal.
- Remove from heat, fold in chocolate chips and then transfer to the prepared pan. Using a greased spatula, pat down evenly.
- Let cool completely before cutting into squares. Store in an airtight container.

I made these this evening and my chocolate chips partially melted in the first batch. So, second batch, i transferred from the hot pan to a cool bowl before I folded in the choc chips. Still melted. I was using mini chips. Was that the problem? Or should I let the cereal/marshmallow goo cool some before folding in chips, whatever size?
