Strawberries & Cream Crispy Rice Bars

Recipe by Grant Melton

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 6 tbsp. butter
  • 1 bag (10.5 oz.) plus 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups strawberry-flavored crispy rice cereal
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup freeze-dried strawberries, divided

Preparation

Mix It Up: Line a 9-by-13-inch pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. In a large pot, melt the butter over high heat. Add the bag of marshmallows and 1/2 tsp. salt and, using a silicone spatula, stir until smooth. Remove from heat. Add the cereal and mix until evenly coated. Mix in the remaining 2 cups marshmallows, stirring just until incorporated but not melted. Mix in white chocolate chips and freeze-dried strawberries.

Top It Off: Transfer the cereal to the prepared pan. Spray a clean spatula with cooking spray; pat the cereal into an even layer. Top the warm treats with 1/4 cup freeze-dried strawberries. Let cool for 2 hours. Cut into squares.
