6 Tbsp. butter
1 1/2 Tbsp. cherry gelatin powder
16 oz. pkg. mini marshmallows
8 cups Rice Krispies cereal
11 oz. dark chocolate, melted

Instructions

  1. Place the butter, gelatin powder and mini marshmallows into a large saucepan.
  2. Melt together over low heat. Stir constantly.
  3. When the marshmallows are melted, fold in the cereal.
  4. Press the mixture into a 9×13 inch pan or baking sheet.
  5. Frost or drizzle with melted chocolate.
  6. Set for 1 hour. Store in an airtight container.

Notes

  • You could use strawberry gelatin in place of the cherry.
  • To make it easier to press these rice krispie treats into the pan, put a little bit of butter or spray your fingertips with a small amount of cooking spray and then press them in. This will keep the marshmallows from sticking to your fingers and get the job done quick and clean!
