Strawberry Shortcake Rice Krispie Treats

Please tell me you’re swooning at the idea of a rice krispie treat filled with chunks of angel food cake topped with fresh whipped cream and strawberries?  They might just be the best rice krispie treats I’ve ever had.  Believe it or not, I can’t ever seem to make good rice krispie treats, they always turn out hard and crunchy, not soft and chewy like they should be.  
 
But I finally got them right and the strawberry shortcake twist was divine!! 
 
  

Lately we’ve been eating our way through the giant containers of strawberries from Costco every few days.  When strawberries are in season, strawberry shortcake is a given (and one of my favorite desserts!) I had almost half of an angel food cake leftover from making Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs, in addition to all the fixins for Rice Krispie Treats.

The idea just came to me and I went with it.

Chopped up the angel food cake into cubes….

 

Mixed them in with the rice cereal…

And stirred them into the gooey marshmallow butter mix, pressed them into a pan, and topped them with whipped cream and strawberries.

And ate three in a row.

Go make some!

Ingredients
  1. 2 1/2 c. Rice Krispie Cereal
  2. 1 heaping cup angel food cake squares
  3. 2 1/4 c. marshmallows
  4. 1 1/2 tbsp butter
  5. 1 c whipping cream
  6. 2-3 tbsp sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
  7. 1 tsp vanilla
  8. 2 cups diced strawberries
Instructions
  1. In a large microwave safe bowl, melt marshmallows and butter together. Stir in Rice Krispie Cereal and angel food cake squares. (I like to spray my spatula or spoon with Pam before stirring).
  2. Press into a lightly greased 8 X 8 inch square pan.
  3. In a stand mix, beat whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla just until stiff peaks form.
  4. You can either spread the whipping cream over the Rice Krispies and top with diced strawberries. (Store in the fridge)
  5. Or you can top individual Rice Krispie Squares with a heaping spoonful of whip cream and top it with fresh strawberries.

    The strawberry shortcake rice krispie is a brilliant idea of combining both the soft and hard texture, blended in with a strawberry goodness of chunks on top of it. It’s appropriate for both adults and children alike for its double texture. This is the first time of ever hearing this recipe and I’m hoping to make some of mine soon.

    will refrigerating them cause the rice krispy part to harden?

    This is probably a stupid question but did you make the Angle Food Squares or buy them? Thanks!

    I read the recipe and bought whipping cream! After I mixed it realized you probably meant whipped cream.. ruined :(

      No it’s whipping cream, it’s listed in the recipe with instructions to add some sugar and beat until soft peaks form, to make whipped cream!

    We are making these for a graduation party and was wondering if we made them morning of including whipped cream , would they hold up or should I put the whipped cream and strawberries on ice next to it and let guests make there own?

    • Kristy June 15, 2013

      It’s a good idea to let the guests build their own if you can’t serve immediately! But that’ll be fun for them!

    The secret to good Rice Krispie Treats is to put in more marshmallows, OR less cereal. I can’t wait to try your spin on my old favorite–tomorrow, after I get ingredients later today. Thanks so much for sharing!
