The Partiologist: Neapolitan Rice Krispie Treats!

Neapolitan Rice Krispie Treats!

I think I'm done seeing green for awhile - so I'm taking you back to Sweet Pink, Brown & White.  And my Neapolitan Rice Krispie Treats!
It was only appropriate that I make these little Rice Krispie Treats for the baby shower.  They were perfect for my theme, and I love Rice Krispie Treats!

I made them in a bread loaf pan~Three layers of goodness - Chocolate, Plain and Strawberry.  Here's how~
Didn't have Cocoa Krispies - so I added Cocoa to Plain Rice Krispies.
After melting the marshmallows and butter~
I poured it over the chocolate rice krispies and pressed it in a greased loaf pan.  Then I made the plain layer and pressed it on top of the chocolate~
And on top of the plain layer, I made a strawberry layer~
Strawberry Mallows - they are Berry-Licious!
I layered the strawberry layer over the plain layer (did you notice I forgot to take photos of the Chocolate and Strawberry layer - oops!)  I think you've got the idea though.
Then I popped it out of the pan~
And sliced~
I sliced them in half one more time before serving.  So we could all have more!  And if I were having an ice cream party - I would have added little Popsicle sticks to each! 
 

Neapolitan Rice Krispie Treats

The Partiologist

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 or 6 cups Rice Krispies with added cocoa powder
For the Strawberry Layer
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package (10 oz., about 40) strawberry marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Generously spray your loaf pan with cooking spray.


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 cereal until it is completely coated. Pour the mixture into your prepared pan. Spray your hands with cooking spray and then firmly press the marshmallow covered cereal into the pan. Place the pan in the refrigerator.


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 Krispie cereal until it is completely coated. Pour the mixture on top of the vanilla layer in your prepared pan. Again, spray your hands with cooking spray and then firmly press the marshmallow covered cereal into the pan. Place the pan in the refrigerator.

Strawberry Layer - melt the butter &
marshmallows in a large pot over medium-low heat. Quickly stir in the rice cereal until it is completely coated. Pour the mixture on top of the chocolate layer in your prepared pan. Spray your hands 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. Then cut each large slice into smaller squares.
I can't wait to show you what I've got for Easter!!

    1. Thanks! I used one stick of butter and one bag of the large (not jumbo) marshmallows. Then I divided that between the layers. I didn't really measure the rice krispies - just poured them in until they "felt" right. I hope this helps!

  8. Just saw this on FB through SugarBelle. I made these for my daughter's Neapolitan Bday party, they are in the freezer waiting. Oh darn, I had to eat the "scraps" that I cut from the edges. I also used CHOCOLATE 'mallows for the chocolate layer (& chocolate krispies,)added 1/2 tsp vanilla to the vanilla layer and 1/2 tsp strawberry extract to the sberry layer. WAY good!

    1. Cindy - I always use one stick of butter and one bag of marshmallows, melt and pour over rice krispies. I add more krispies until I feel that they are coated. I really SHOULD measure! Check on the side of the Rice Krispie box, I think there is a recipe posted there.

  15. Can someone please tell me what to do so my Rice Krispy treats don't become hard as rocks very quickly after cooling??? PLEASE!

    1. Jacquie - it sounds like you're not using enough butter and marshmallows. I always start with 1 stick of butter and one bag of marshmallows - melt together and just pour over rice krispies until coated. Add the krispies until it looks very sticky. Hope this helps!

  17. Thanks for the great idea! I found chocolate/Vanilla Marshmallows that I used for the chocolate layer. They are cooling now, can't wait to sneak a bite :-)

  18. I just made these for a bake sale! Instead of the strawberry marshmellow I used 1/3 cup of strawberry milk mix and they turned out great! I also used chocolate milk powder for the chocolate layer!

    Thanks for the great idea!
