Strawberry shortcake is not just a simple summer dessert. We took all that flavor and turned it into a crunchy Rice Krispies treat.

Normally I think of strawberries as a summertime fruit. However, during the winter there is a crop of strawberries that gets shipped in from Florida and my heart literally skips a beat. I love strawberries and the fact that I can get them fresh in the middle of the winter brings a smile to my face. I mixed these simple Rice Krispies treats with angel food cake and then topped them with creamy whipped cream and sweet diced strawberries. You will love these babies!
