This is a post is written on behalf of Pampered Chef, but my opinions are 100% mine.
One quick look around my kitchen will let you know that I love Pampered Chef. I tried figuring out how many Pampered Chef items I owned and I lost count. Yes, I own that many.
After fifteen or so years I now have quite a large collection of Pampered Chef items. From the stoneware to the measuring cups and spoons, I love it all. I love to use it in my kitchen and I love to give it as gifts.
When Pampered Chef contacted me recently about working with them on their Help Whip Cancer campaign, it was easy to say yes.
And when I found out it involved a giveaway for my readers, the answer was definitely yes. I know you all love Pampered Chef as much as I do.
Here is a little information about the Help Whip Cancer campaign and how you can help.
- Since the campaign’s beginning in 2000, Consultants and customers have raised more than $10.2 million to Help Whip Cancer®. Make a Difference in May and October with The Pampered Chef®!
- Funds raised by the Help Whip Cancer® campaign are distributed to breast cancer education and early detection programs across the country.
Here’s how you can Help Whip Cancer®:
- Host a Fundraiser Show! – When you host a Help Whip Cancer® Fundraiser Cooking Show in May and/or October, up to 25% of Show sales will be donated to the American Cancer Society®.
- Purchase pink products! – Pampered Chef® pink products are available in May and October. We’ll contribute $1 to the American Cancer Society® for each one that you purchase.

Since the Help Whip Cancer campaign is to benefit the American Cancer Society I was asked to turn one of my favorite recipes pink in support of breast cancer awareness. When I think of Pampered Chef recipes I think quick and easy. Their recipes are recipes for everyday cooking. So, I knew I needed to turn one of my favorite quick and easy recipes pink.
I decided to involve my kids on this one and make something fun for them. I decided to turn a favorite crispy rice treat pink. And it could not have been easier.
One of the reasons I choose to make these was that it is one of my favorite things to make using my rectangular stoneware baker. The stoneware baker is nice and deep, so it makes a nice thick treat that my kids love.
This is pretty much your basic crispy treats recipe with the amounts changed to fit the deep stoneware baker. And with a few drops of food coloring added.
Nice and thick and delicious! Wouldn’t these be fun for all kinds of things. Parties, kids treats, etc. My girls loved them pink.
Pink Crispy Rice Treats
- 5 tablespoons butter
- 6 cups mini marshmallows
- 9 cups crispy rice type cereal ( I used gluten free)
- 4-5 drops red food coloring
- In a large pan melt butter. Add marshmallows and stir until melted and smooth.
- Remove from heat.
- Stir in food coloring. You want this a dark pink because it will lighten as you add the cereal.
- Stir in cereal. (The large mix and scraper works great for jobs like this that are a little harder to stir.)
- Spread in stoneware baker.
- Cut into squares and serve!
