Strawberry Rice Krispie Treats

Yesterday was such a nice day and it finally felt like Spring!  Did you know it was already officially Spring?  Here are some fun and delicious Spring-y rice krispies for you! Not much to say, you have all had these marshmallow treats before.  The only difference in these is that I used Strawberry Flavored Marshmallows and a little strawberry extract to give them a stronger strawberry flavor!  I love the addition of the extract and I highly recommend it, but if you don't think you would ever use it again, I probably would not buy it just for these.

4 Tbl. unsalted butter
1 (10 oz.) bag Strawberry Marshmallows
1 tsp. strawberry extract, opt. 
6 c. Rice Krispies cereal

In a large pan, melt butter over medium heat.  Add marshmallows and stir until melted and smooth (sometimes I add an extra 1 cup of plain marshmallows if I feel like having them extra chewy).  Stir in the extract.  Remove from heat and add the cereal and stir until completely coated with marshmallows.  Pour into a greased 9x13 pan.  Using the back of a spoon that has been greased with butter, smooth out the top of the rice krispies.  Cut into squares and serve.
