I loved these! They are very pretty and take me back to my childhood. I followed the recipe exactly, except I added a generous handful of sweetened flaked coconut to the strawberry layer to make them taste like Neapolitan coconut candy.
For those who really wanted to like this recipe but didn't like the consistency of the red part, a 1/3 of a 4 serving package of raspberry or strawberry jello rather than the preserves should solve the problem. You can do the same for the chocolate layer (using chocolate pudding rather than jello) instead of buying Cocoa Krispies.
I have to agree with the others, the strawberry part was runny and gross, I followed the directions exactly. What a waste, they looked really nice, but no one would eat them, I ended up throwing more than three quarters of this out.
Made it as described but the strawberry part was too runny and didnt seem to taste right but if made with food coloring only instead of the strawberry I think it would be fine.
These were excellent, but I stopped following the directions to melt the marshmallows on the stove after the first layer and used the microwave as I usually do for rice krispie treats. It made the whole recipe much quicker to complete. I plan on doing these with the strawberry layer, the regular layer, and a layer with blueberry preserves for the 4th of July.
