Colored Rice Krispie Treats

Colored Rice Krispie Treats? Yes!! Rice Krispie Treats are always a hit around here, but this new twist on an old favorite is out of this world!

Colored Rice Krispie Treats are amazing – we call them Neapolitan Rice Krispie Treats awesome to look at (and super fun to bring to events!) but I have to admit it, these treats take things to a whole new level of delicious.

I also love that these are still a somewhat simple snack. Easy to tuck into lunches and/or serve at parties.

I always keep Rice Krispies cereal on hand because there are so many different rice krispie recipes that you can make, honestly – one for every occasion which makes them a great go-to when you are in a pinch. Everyone loves a good Rice Krispie great recipe! 

Ingredients for making colored Rice Krispie Treats

 

12 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
6 cups Cocoa Krispies
9 tbs salted butter
12 cups miniature marshmallows
3 ounce box of powdered Strawberry Jell-O
 

There are three layers here (obviously) so you will be doing those each in their own batch.

Layer One – Vanilla Flavored and Colored Rice Krispie Layer:

 
Start by coating a 8 x 11.5 baking pan with non stick cooking spray.
Melt 3 tbs butter in a large saucepan.
Add 4 cups mini marshmallows and stir constantly until melted.
Remove from heat.
 
Add in 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal to the marshmallow mixture and stir until all the cereal is coated.
Turn that mixture into your greased baking dish and use a piece of wax paper to press the cereal mixture down firmly.
Wash and dry your large saucepan so you can start on your chocolate layer.
