How to Make Strawberry Rice Krispie Treats with Jam

These are wonderful treats to make for special occasions--birthdays, holidays, or rainy afternoons. Let the kids help. It'll make for wonderful memories.

Once you have made these treats with jam, you’ll never go back to the plain variety. The jam adds sweetness and flavor to the cereal.

Of course, you can use jams other than strawberry.

These treats have extra miniature marshmallows pressed into the tops of the treats while they are still warm. Candies or cake decorations can also be added.

After the treats have cooled, butter the sides of a cookie cutter and cut into shapes. They don't have to be heart shaped--say little bunnies for the kids.  Or let the kids help with holiday treats at Christmas.



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 jam and stir. If the marshmallow and jam mixture is not flavorful enough, add some strawberry flavor. If it is not pink enough, add some color.
2. Add the rice cereal. Stir until the cereal is uniformly combined with the marshmallow mixture.
3. Remove the mixture to the buttered 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 and cut into squares.

Baker’s 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.
