Neapolitan Cereal Treats


Neapolitan Cereal Treats
Adapted from Shugary Sweets

Ingredients:
Chocolate Layer:
2 tbsp butter
5 oz chocolate marshmallows (can sub vanilla)
2 tbsp Dutch-process cocoa powder
1/4 tsp chocolate flavoring (opt)
3 cups Rice Krispies cereal (can use Cocoa Krispies)

Vanilla Layer:
2 tbsp butter
5 oz mini marshmallows
1/4 tsp vanilla extract (opt)
3 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Strawberry Layer:
2 tbsp butter
5 oz strawberry marshmallows (can sub vanilla)
1/2 tsp strawberry flavor oil
Very small amount of pink food coloring (opt)
3 cups Rice Krispies cereal

*You can substitute Earth Balance buttery spread for non-dairy treats

Directions:
1.  Line a 9" X 13" baking dish with parchment paper.  Lightly spray the dish with oil.  Set aside.

2.  For the Chocolate Layer: in a large pot, melt the butter over medium-low heat.

3.  Add the marshmallows to the pot.  Stir constantly until the marshmallows are melted and smooth.

4.  Turn off the burner.  Sift the cocoa powder into the pot.  Add the chocolate flavoring.  Mix well.  

5.  Add the cereal to the pot.  Gently stir until the cereal is completely coated.

6.  Pour the cereal mixture into the prepared dish.  Press gently into an even layer (this is easier if you use an oiled piece of parchment or waxed paper).  The layer will be very thin.

7.  For the Vanilla Layer: in a large pot, melt the butter over medium-low heat.

8.  Add the marshmallows to the pot.  Stir constantly until the marshmallows are melted and smooth.

9.  Turn off the burner.  Add the vanilla extract.  Mix well.

10.  Add the cereal to the pot.  Gently stir until the cereal is completely coated.

11.  Pour the cereal mixture over the chocolate layer.  Press gently into an even layer (this is easier if you use an oiled piece of parchment or waxed paper).  The layer will be very thin.

12.  For the Strawberry Layer: in a large pot, melt the butter over medium-low heat.

13.  Add the marshmallows to the pot.  Stir constantly until the marshmallows are melted and smooth.

14.  Turn off the burner.  Add the strawberry flavoring.  Mix well. 

15.  Add the cereal to the pot.  Gently stir until the cereal is completely coated.

16.  Pour the cereal mixture over the vanilla layer.  Press gently into an even layer (this is easier if you use an oiled piece of parchment or waxed paper).  The layer will be very thin.

17.  Press firmly into the dish (this is easier if you use an oiled piece of parchment or waxed paper).  Let cool to room temperature.

18.  Cut the treats into pieces using an oiled knife or cutter.  Serve!  To store: cover and keep at room temperature.  These are best served within 24 hours.
