Use 1 Tbsp softened butter to butter the bottom and sides of a 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Set aside.
In a deep pot over low heat, melt together 7 Tbsp butter, light corn syrup and both packages strawberry marshmallows. Cook for 4-5 minutes stirring constantly until completely melted.
Add crispy rice cereal, dried strawberries and 1 cup mini marshmallows. Use a non-stick spatula or a spoon spritzed with cooking spray to stir until evenly coated.
Work quickly pressing the mixture into the buttered pan. Spritz the back of a spoon or spatula with cooking spray to press to avoid sticking. Let cool and set-up for at least 1 hour.
Meanwhile, melt white chocolate with 2 Tbsp vegetable shortening in a microwave safe bowl in 20 second increments. Stop and stir each time. Repeat until smooth.
Cut the krispie treats into desired shapes, and frost with white chocolate. Decorate with sprinkles.
Freeze dried strawberries are readily available at big box stores i.e. Target or online. Strawberry marshmallows were found at Walmart.
