These are very good, very flavorful treats—but it takes a lot of flavor. Maybe it’s the way the cereal absorbs the flavor. But it’s worth it.

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal or equal
4 teaspoons strawberry flavor
2 teaspoons lemon flavor
3 drops electric pink color

Butter a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.

  1. In a large pan on the stovetop, melt the butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows. Stir until the mixture is melted and smooth. Add the color and then the flavors.
  2. Add the rice cereal. Stir until the cereal is uniformly combined with the marshmallow mixture.
  3. Remove the mixture to the buttered baking pan. Evenly distribute the mixture and press it down into the pan with buttered fingers, a piece of waxed paper, or a spatula. Let cool for 30 minutes and cut into squares.

Bakers Note: If you use a large enough pan, you can mix the treats right in the pan, not in a bowl. The hot pan makes it a little easier to stir the mixture together and there is less clean up.

Rice Krispies Treats are best eaten the same day.
