Easy To Switch Up

If you aren't a fan of the combination of chocolate and cherries, you can easily use whatever flavor of gelatin you prefer instead. Really, the possibilities are endless. You could even use white chocolate chips. So, get creative and have fun!

Chocolate Covered Cherry Rice Krispies Treats


4 tbsp. butter
1 bag (10 oz) mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 (4 oz) package cherry Jell-O
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 tbsp. shortening


Heat butter in saucepan over medium heat until melted. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Stir in Jell-O powder. Remove from heat and stir in Rice Krispies cereal. Make sure your hands are clean and greased well with cooking spray to avoid sticking. Gently press your treats into a rimmed baking sheet.

While treats cool, melt chocolate chips with shortening for 1 minute. Stir until smooth and melted. Heat in 15 second increment, if needed, until smooth. Drizzle over cooled Rice Krispies treats.

Notes: Again, if you don't love cherry, you could do strawberry Jell-O with milk chocolate, or raspberry Jell-O with milk chocolate...or lime Jell-O with white chocolate, or watermelon Jell-O with white chocolate...really, there are so many combinations to choose from!
