Last year, I found these GIGANTIC pink marshmallows at the bulk store. I bought a package, intending to make crazy s'mores with them, when we went camping. Well, I forgot them, when we headed to my parent's trailer, so I decided to turn them into Rice Krispie Treats. I had the perfect opportunity too, when my sister in law had a big cookout celebration, to celebrate her doctorate. I whipped the treats up, complete with orange, yellow, green and blue Nerds. They looked awesome and all the kids at the get together loved the crazy Krispie treats. A few of Hubby's aunts mentioned how yummy and fun they were, so I knew I had a winner on my hands. Unfortunately I never took the time to make them again and hadn't seen the pink marshmallows since. Until last week, that is!!
There I was shopping when I spotted the gigantic fluffy devils. So I grabbed a bag, and a box of Rice Krispies and came home. The kids were excited about the marshmallows and anxious for me to get the treats made. As simple as regular Rice Krispie treats, but twice the fun! These taste awesome! They have a slight strawberry taste, have crunchy tart Nerds through out and are a cute pink colour. I also found some Popping Candy in the cupboard, so decided to top the treats with it. I forgot how popping candy makes you feel like your brain is fizzling, LOL. The kids are totally loving these!!!
Crazy Candy Rice Krispie Squares
1/2 bag of HUGE pink marshmallows*
1/4 C butter
6 C Rice Krispies Cereal
2 boxes of Nerds (or 1 big box with 4 colours)
popping candy (suck as Pop Rocks)
In a large pot melt the butter over med-low heat. Rip the marshmallows into quarters and add them to the melted butter. Let sit for a few minutes and stir until smooth. Add in the Rice Krispies and stir until all cereal is coated with marshmallow mixture. Add in Nerds and stir to evenly distribute them. Press in a thick layer, onto a buttered cookie sheet. Sprinkle with popping candy and let cool. Once cooled cut into squares.
*I found my marshmallows at Sobey's this year, but last year I found them a the Bulk Barn. These are stored in Canada. Feel free to use any marshmallow you can find.
