At first I wasn’t sure what I should do for a summer-inspired rice cereal treat recipe, but the answer suddenly seemed so clear. I’m truly a Pittsburgh girl because I will never say no to a good pretzel salad. And with that, the pretzel salad rice cereal treat recipe was born!
If you’ve never heard of a pretzel salad, it may seem a bit odd at first, but I promise that your mind will be blown if you just give it a taste! It is the the perfect combination of salty and sweet, plus the recipe is very simple–bring a tray to your next barbecue or Fourth of July party!
Pretzel Salad Rice Cereal Treat Recipe 🍓🥨
•1 package Jet Puffed Marshmallows
•6 cups Rice Krispies
•5 tablespoons butter
•1 tsp cream cheese icing flavor
•1 package dried strawberries
•2 cups crushed pretzels
•1/2 bag mini marshmallows
In a large pan, let the butter melt over low heat. Add marshmallows and heat over low until mostly melted. Add cream cheese icing flavor. Stir until combined.
Remove from heat. Add 6 cups of rice cereal and mix. Add the crushed pretzels, dried strawberries, 1/2 bag of mini marshmallows.
Place in buttered or non stick dish.
Tip: I like to spray a piece of aluminum foil with nonstick cooking spray to spread the mixture out.
Enjoy a spin on a classic summer staple!
