1 package of instant vanilla pudding
1.5 cups of milk
2 tablespoons of butter
1 cup of whipping cream
1 tablespoon of maple syrup or flavoring

Marshmallow Strawberry Tart Recipe Directions
Wash and hull the strawberries. Pat them dry and then set them aside.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
On low heat, melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the marshmallows and stir until they are all melted. Remove the saucepan from your heat source and stir in the rice cereal until it is well-mixed. Pat the mixture into a greased 9-inch pie pan. Place the pan into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden. Remove and allow to cool for a few minutes when done.
In a mixing bowl, blend the whipped cream, maple syrup or flavoring, milk, and instant pudding on high speed until stiff peaks form. Spoon the mixture into the pie pan on top of the crust.
Place the washed strawberries into the cream filling, sprinkle the sugar over the strawberries and top of the filling, and serve to all your little ninjas! This recipe makes 8 delicious servings!
Additional Notes on this Strawberry Recipe
This marshmallow strawberry tart recipe makes a great dessert all year round. While typically better with fresh strawberries, those can be more difficult to find at different times of the year. So, if you have a particularly important martial arts competition during the colder months, you can always use frozen strawberries. Just save some of your bounty from summer and substitute! This recipe also serves as an excellent breakfast addition. Plus, just like most of the other Strawberry Recipes, this one can be easily modified. For varied tastes, try adding blueberries, blackberries, or other exotic fruit. Experiment and find what works well for you and your unique taste sensibilities! For those conscious about the amount of refined table sugar they consume, feel free to try organic evaporated cane juice crystals, turbinado, sucanat, honey crystals, brown sugar, or even stevia to give unique and varied accents to this quick strawberry recipe.
