Strawberry Rice Krispies Pie

Gotta love a little friendly competition… and an excuse to create a yummy dessert!

I’m teaming up with Rice Krispies, TheMotherhood.com, and 9 other bloggers for some spring-time cooking fun.  Our mission?  Create a unique, tasty recipe to fit this theme:  Easter’s more fun with moms’ Rice Krispies Treats recipes.

My hubby, a dessert-eating expert, helped me come up with this Strawberry Rice Krispies Pie. It’s a fun combination of chewy marshmallow, crunchy chocolate, and creamy strawberry.  What do you think?

Strawberry Rice Krispies Pie

Layer 1: Press about 2/3 of a batch of Rice Krispies Treats into a well-buttered pie plate.  (Go ahead, eat the rest.)  ;)

Layer 2: Melt 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.  Spread over bottom and sides of Rice Krispies crust.   (Very important to completely cover, so the crust doesn’t get soggy!)

Layer 3:

Strawberry Glaze

  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch dissolved in 2 Tbsp. water
  • 1 Tbsp. strawberry gelatin powder
  • drop of red food coloring (optional)

Mix all together in a saucepan.  Heat until boiling and thickened.  Cool completely.

Cream Filling

  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 12 oz. whipped cream

Beat together until fluffy. Mix with cooled glaze.  Add 1 pound fresh, sliced strawberries.  Pour onto chocolate.  Chill (a few hours) until serving.

Garnish with fresh strawberries or melted chocolate chips.

** Word of warning – this pie is tricky to cut since the chocolate gets hard, but it’s worth it!  Perfect combination of flavors and textures.

** Starting Monday morning, I’ll be hosting (along with the other 9 Rice Krispies mom blogger) an “Easter Egg” scavenger hunt.  Be sure to come back for details.  There are prizes involved!

** Disclosure: This post is part of a paid campaign sponsored by Rice Krispies® cereal and The Motherhood.  The words and recipe are all mine.

  1. The best things in life require a little work, I think. :>) Cutting through hard chocolate certainly qualifies!

  2. What a great idea Amy!!! I want to try that:)

  3. Ohhh…that looks so tasty! Anything with strawberry and chocolate is the BOMB!!!
    Great Job!

  4. I never would have thought to make a crust out of Rice Krispy treats. It looks great!

  5. This looks and sounds great! Way to go!

  6. Phoebe took the words out of my mouth – ditto on the crust! What a creative way to use them! :)

  7. Rice krispies are one of my favorite treats! I wanna make some of my own too, thanks a lot for this post! :-)

  8. Amy, this looks SO yummy!! I think I may need to make this for our family, next weekend. Glad you have this opportunity with Rice Krispies! I am getting my home in order and emptying WAY TOO MANY boxes. It has kept me offline and I am missing my online friends. I pray you are feeling well.

  9. This looks delicious. You mentioned that the tricky cutting, due to the hard chocolate. How about making more of a ganache, by melting butter or margarine w/ the chocolate over a double boiler? It might be easier to cut and would be texturally delightful.

    Also, I make peanut butter rice krispy treats, by melting 1c. peanut butter, 1c. karo syrup, and one cup of sugar, then adding 6 cups of Rice Krispies. How about using that as a crust, fill with chocolate ganache, and forget about the strawberry filling altogether? Wow, that would be decadent!

  10. Oh my… I think I might need to make this… soon!!!

  11. Ooooh, this sounds delish!!

  12. This looks so delicious!!

  13. Looks delicious!!!
