If you love chocolate covered strawberries then you need to try these Chocolate Covered Strawberry Rice Krispie Treats.
The moment I saw strawberry flavored marshmallows in the grocery store I knew what I was going to make with them, because what else do you make with marshmallows that’s as yummy as Rice Krispie Treats. And if you’ve had to chance to check out more of our blog I’ve also made a rainbow version and some yummy peanut butter ones.
I love chocolate covered strawberries but for some reason I never make them at home so anytime I go into a chocolate shop and I see them, I just have to get some. There’s something about fruit paired with chocolate that goes so well together. And you feel like your being a little bit healthy because hey they’re strawberries and it’s a fruit.
