Strawberry Shortcake Rice Krispies Treats

StrawShortcakeRKT-4 I can vividly remember eating a fresh pan of Rice Krispies Treats, drinking glasses of Kool-Aid, and snacking on a side of graham cracker frosting sandwiches for lunch my senior year of high school. Healthy? Absolutely not. Delicious? You better believe it. My waistline has daily doses of sports’ practices and a lucky metabolism to thank. I decided to give one of our old favorites a new twist by adding in summer favorites: fresh strawberries, homemade whipped cream, and fluffy angel food cake. Let’s just say, I didn’t hate it and neither would my eighteen year old self.  🙂 Have you ever given a “classic” recipe a homemade twist?

SSRKTIngredientsStrawberry Shortcake Rice Krispies Treats:

2 1/2 cups cereal
1 cup angel food cake squares
2 1/4 cups marshmallows
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 cup whipping cream
2-3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a microwave safe bowl, melt marshmallows and butter together. Stir in cereal and angel food cake squares until evenly dispersed and press into an 8×8″ pan. Using a mixer, beat whipping cream, vanilla, and sugar until stiff peaks form (about 4-6 minutes). Either (a) spread the whipped cream over the pan, top with strawberries, cut, and serve (b) cut into squares, add a dollop of whipped cream, and top with strawberries (c) stack two squares together like we did, top with whipped cream and strawberries to create a cake! Any way you cut it, they are delicious!
