Marshmallow Rice Krispies Fruity Treats

During the Spring it’s fun to spice up recipes by making them colorful.  One of my favorite treats is a spinoff of the original marshmallow treats.  The bright colors make them so bright and edible.   The recipe is very easy to make and takes about five minutes to prepare.  It is a great way to quickly make a treat for the special occasion or for the special last minute celebration.  Whip them up and viola! you have an instant party.   Just make sure you have another person in the room to ensure you don’t eat them all by yourself.   They really are that good.

Ingredients

3 teaspoons of butter

1 package (10 oz) of marshmallows

3 cups rice krispies

3 cups fruity pebbles

 

Preparation

1. Add butter to saucepan and melt over low heat.  Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted.

2. Add rice krispies and stir.  Add fruity pebbles and stir until well coated.   My recipe uses 2 cups of fruity pebbles and 4 cups of rice krispies.  However, you can modify the recipe to suit your needs and tastebuds.

3.  Using a buttered spatula, spread mix over a 13x9x2 pan or waxed paper and spread evenly.

4. Place in refrigerator for 1 hour or until cool.  Cut into 1 1/2 squares. Best if served same day.  Prepares 20 squares.

 

Buen Provecho!

Homemade Strawberry Lemonade Recipe

It’s warm again in our home.  During the spring and summer I’m always looking for creative methods to hydrate and make a lot of use of my  Breville Juice Fountain duo juicer.   Creating homemade juice with natural fruits is one of my favorite pastimes.  I love the taste of strawberries and put them on everything from pancakes, crepes, oatmeal and cereal.   Most recently I started experimenting with strawberry recipes and created a recipe with fresh strawberries and organic lemons.

I used a Breville Juice Fountain duo to make the delicious beverage at home.  I’m in love with this Home Tech gadget!  If you do not have a juicer you can also use a blender to puree the fruit.  For this recipe I will use a blender.

 

Strawberry Lemonade | Agua Fresca de Fresa y Limon

Ingredients

1 cup white sugar
1 cup water
1 pint fresh strawberries
1 cup fresh lemon juice (6 -8 lemons)
6 cups cold water
6 cups ice

Directions

In a saucepan over high heat, mix together water and sugar until sugar dissolves and it becomes a clear syrup. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Place the strawberry into a blender. Cover, and puree until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh sieve. Place the lemons into a blender. Cover and puree until smooth.  Stir in 6 cups of cold water, the lemon juice and stir.  Add clear syrup. Divide the ice into 12 glasses, and then top with the lemonade. Gently stir before serving.

For lemonade with pulp do not strain lemons and strawberries after blending.  Add club soda to make fizzy lemonade.

Buen Provecho!
