Neapolitan Krispie Treats

I fell in love with these little Krispies right away!  They not only taste great but look so cute!  Don't you agree?  They would be another perfect treat for Valentine's Day.

If you like Rice Krispie treats, then you will definitely have to try these.  The combination of strawberry, marshmallow, and chocolate can't be beat.

I first came across this recipe through the blog, Shugary Sweets.  Here is a link to her post.

Since it is layered, you prepare each layer separately starting with the bottom (chocolate recipe) and moving up from there.
