Classic marshmallow crispy treats with pops of bright red berries.
Ingredients
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter (3oz/85g)
  • 1 bag marshmallows (10oz/283.5g)
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5½ cups crispy rice cereal (6oz/170g)
  • 1 cup each freeze-dried raspberries and strawberries (a total of 2 cups) (.5oz/14g)
  • 3 ounces white chocolate chips (85g)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • additional freeze-dried berries for topping
Instructions
  1. Butter or spray an 8x8 baking pan, line with parchment leaving a 1-inch overhang on two sides to create a sling, and butter/spray the parchment.
  2. In a large pot combine the unsalted butter and marshmallows, stirring until melted over medium heat. Stir in the salt and vanilla. Turn off the heat and quickly stir in the cereal, followed by the freeze-dried berries, until completely coated in the marshmallow mixture. Press the mixture into the prepared pan with a silicone spatula. Once it has cooled slightly, use your hands to firmly press the treats into the pan so they are compacted in an even layer (I like to wet my hands a little with water to prevent sticking).
  3. Melt the white chocolate and coconut oil in a small dish in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each, until melted and smooth. Drizzle the white chocolate over the top of the treats and sprinkle with additional freeze-dried berries. Let the treats cool completely at room temperature to set (at least 1 hour) before cutting into squares.
