I am back again to share another recipe from the Neapolitan Dessert Bar I recently styled with Tessa of The Frosted Cake Shop.  If you’re looking for a recipe that is fun but different, these may just be the answer.  Neapolitan Rice Crispy Treats have layers of strawberry, chocolate, and regular Rice Krispies cereal. The combination makes up a perfect color palette.

Neapolitan Rice Crispy Treat Recipe (recipe from Erin Cooks)

Ingredients:

For the Vanilla Layer

  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

For the Chocolate Layer

  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
  • 6 cups Cocoa Krispies cereal

For the Strawberry Layer  (Note: I followed the recipe for Fluff based treats for this layer. It is slightly different from the other two layers).

  • 4 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 jar (7 1/2 oz) Strawberry Fluff
  • 5 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Method:

  • Begin by lining a metal square edged 9” by 13” pan with aluminum foil. Instruction are available here. Use a pan that has high sides. Casserole dishes with rounded edges will not be able to hold all of the treat layers. Generously spray your prepared pan with cooking spray.
  • For the Vanilla Layer, melt the butter in a large pot over medium-low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir continuously until they have melted completely. Quickly stir in the Rice Krispies cereal until completely coated. Pour the mixture into your prepared pan. Spray a rubber spatula with cooking spray and then firmly press the marshmallow covered cereal into the pan. Place the pan in the refrigerator. Wash out your cooking pot and proceed to the Chocolate Layer.
  • For the Chocolate Layer, melt the butter in a large pot over medium-low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir continuously until they have melted completely. Quickly stir in the Cocoa Krispies cereal until completely coated. Pour the mixture on top of the vanilla layer in your prepared pan. Spray a rubber spatula with cooking spray, and then firmly press the marshmallow covered cereal into the pan. Place the pan in the refrigerator. Wash out your cooking pot and proceed to the Strawberry Layer.
  • For the Strawberry Layer, melt the butter in a large pot over medium-low heat. Add the strawberry fluff and stir continuously until it has melted completely. Quickly stir in the Rice Krispies cereal until completely coated. Pour the mixture on top of the chocolate layer in your prepared pan. Spray a rubber spatula with cooking spray and then firmly press the marshmallow covered cereal into the pan. Place the pan in the refrigerator.
  • When the treats have cooled completely, remove them from the pan. Place them on a cutting board. Discard the aluminum foil and cut the large rectangle into slices. Then cut each large slice into smaller squares. Enjoy!
