Strawberry Hazelnut Neapolitan Krispies Treats

Strawberry Hazelnut Neapolitan Krispies Treats from BakingdomToday, I get to share with you the recipe for the amazing Neapolitan Rice Krispies treats that I had for my fourth blogiversary, but I also have a fun announcement!

Things are going to start looking a lot different around here. Over the last few weeks, I’ve been working on a little redecorating project for Bakingdom, and I have a sneak peek for you today. I thought about just springing the new look on you, but it’s quite different, and didn’t want you to think you came to the wrong place. ;)

New-Bakingdom-SneakpeekSo, here it is! A little peek at what’s coming soon! I know, I know, it’s not much, but I hope you guys like it, and I hope you’re patient while I make the transition. There may be some glitches and issues along the way, but hopefully, everything will go smoothly. :)

In the meantime, how about some irresistible treats?

Nutella Neapolitan Rice Krispy Treat Cake from BakingdomWhen I started planning Bakingdom’s birthday cake, I knew I wanted Rice Krispies treats, but I also wanted cake…so I had both. I didn’t want plain treats, though. I wanted something new.

Neapolitan Rice Krispies Treats from BakingdomI’ve seen strawberry treats, Nutella treats, and Neapolitan Rice Krispies treats before, but I’ve never seen them all together. I couldn’t think of anything yummier!

Neapolitan Rice Krispy Treats from BakingdomThe strawberry and vanilla layers of Neapolitan treats are no-brainers, but the reason I chose Nutella for the chocolate layer, besides that fact that it’s freaking delicious, is because I don’t have access to cocoa Krispies here in the Netherlands. Nutella morphs plain Krispies into cocoa, but better.

Strawberry Hazelnut Neapolitan Rice Krispies Treats from BakingdomIf you don’t believe me, make them…you’ll see. Just don’t come blaming me for the stomach ache after you’ve eaten like all of them in one sitting. Resistance is futile. You’ve been warned.

Enjoy!

    Oh rice krispie treats are my weakness! Whenever I make them I end up eating 8/9 treats, every time!

    These look wonderful!

    Looks like you’ve chosen something elegant but still colourful and playful, which is fantastic. I’m sure I’m not the only one looking forward to seeing the new design!

      Hello Eri. Yes, the bird is made of fondant. I simply rolled out a small amount of pink fondant, and used a bird-shaped cookie cutter to cut a piece out. Next, I used a small leaf-shaped cutter to create the wing. I colored the wing a different shade of pink using an edible ink marker, then I “glued” it in place using a bit of frosting. I also used edible ink markers to color the beak and draw on the eye. I attached the bird to the wire using melted chocolate. After letting the chocolate harden, I was able to push the wire into the cake without the bird falling off. I hope this is helpful.

    My kid will like these. I like the look of your blog now, it’s clean and easy to read but I am sure there’s something even nicer coming up!

    These look amazing!! I love neapolitan ice cream, so I’m sure I’d love these!

    I have to ask — what are your thoughts on JK Rowling admitting she regrets the Ron/Hermione pairing?? The fandom is freaking out over it all! Personally, I like Harry and Hermione as just friends, but I guess I could see it going another way.

    Woohoo, this is definitely a keeper recipe! Even tho I do have access to Cocoa Krispies, I kept with your Nutella strategy for optimum goodness. Loved the distinct neopolitan “flavors!”. Everyone at the Super Bowl party I took them to raved about them. A few of the bars tended to separate but no biggie. THANK YOU for sharing such a new take on a fun treat!

    So my 2 year old daughter and I made these today for a Valentine’s Day Party for tomorrow. She enjoyed making them. We had a sneak taste and are yummy. Just wondering ours were not as pink as yours. Should I have added more jam or freeze dryed strawberries for next time?

      Hello! I’m so happy you liked them! I would try adding more freeze dried strawberries, for more natural color. I’ve found that they lend more pink color the finer they’re crushed, but I also like them in bigger chunks. If you don’t mind food coloring, you could also add a small amount of pink coloring.

    I can’t wait to make these with my granddaughter :)
    Ps I love your name, definitely not common and I am half
    Dutch :)

    I made these today. Thank you for the recipe. I subbed 6 raspberries instead of the jam in the pink layer. It worked really well, and they were pink and pretty.
