Summer is still going strong and I want to get every last bit of anything strawberry that I can.  Last week I brought an excellent creamy Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream which was bursting with strawberry flavor.  Today we have a wonderful treat for you that quick and easy to make but still brings that fresh strawberry flavor.


STRAWBERRY RICE KRISPIE TREATS

The other day I was in the cereal aisle of the grocery store when I spotted strawberry flavored rice krispies...what???  Yes sirree, they now have strawberry flavored Rice Krispies that are flavored with natural flavors.  How great is that?  So I new I had to make some treat with these and grabbed a box without hesitation.  

These treats are just as easy to make as the originals, but I made them a little extra gooey by mixing in some whole mini marshmallows in with the cereal so when you bite into them you get that little extra something.  I've seen fancy bakery made treats prepared this way and I've been doing this for years.  Along with any other mix in you may add this takes the treats up a notch!

MGG just gobbled them down and I must say that I really, really liked the flavor of these treats.  Needless to say they didn't last very long in our house.  Hmmm, think I'll go make another batch now!

Enjoy!
