I have been making a ton of marshmallows lately, I guess I’m still in shock that we can make these puffy white clouds of sugariness at home.  So I tried making krispy treats with them.  It’s May, national strawberry month, so I thought I would add some strawberries to the mix!

One bite in, I was amazed at how good these krispy treats were.  They were sweet, chewy, fruity and delicious…  I needed to share them!

I gave my dad a few treats to bring to his dessert-obsessed coworkers (aka, my taste-testing guinea pigs) and this is what he said:

Oh yeah!!  And yes, those are pictures of our adorable little dog.
You know you want to marvel at his cuteness  :)

    Oh my goodness — these look amazing! They remind of the not-so-healthy Good Humor strawberry bars I used to eat in high school. I can’t wait to try these. I think I will try to re-create those ice cream bars with these, but I will place homemade vegan vanilla ice cream in between two of them instead!

    That sounds mind-blowing. I need to try that!

    Could you give the weight for the marshmallows? I’m thinking that it might be hard to measure cups depending on how large they’re cut, if you squish them down, etc.
    tnx!

    Sorry Melanie, this is probably the only recipe where I just winged it and didn’t weigh the ingredients. Of course, right?? But if you check out the marshmallow post, you can kind if gauge the size of the mallows. I like them on the larger size, about 1.5 x 1.5″ … in between the storebought mini-size and jet-puffed. I didn’t squish the mallows down into the cup too much, I just poured it in. Too many marshmallows prooobably won’t hurt the mixture at all but too little will, so overcompensate when in doubt :)

    Could I leave out the protein powder? My mom doesn’t allow me buying it!

    Hi Helen, I haven’t tried it but I’m sure it will work. Hope you like the krispy treats!
