Red Velvet Valentine’s Krispies

We have a resident Red Velvet fiend by the name of Jenna, so when we spotted a recipe from Real Mom Kitchen for Red Velvet Rice Krispie treats, this DIY was born! Make a festive treat for your kids, write a little love note and attach for class Valentine’s, or eat it straight out of the pot, we don’t mind!

Here’s how you’ll do it:

1. In a large sauce pan, melt the butter over medium low heat.

2. Add marshmallows. Stir until marshmallows are melted and combined well with the butter. Whisk in 3/4ths a cup of the cake mix.

3. Add the rice krispies and stir until cereal is well coated.

4. Let the Krispies cool a bit before handling, and then put them into this Heart Ice Cube Tray (we bought it at Ikea, but those of you without one nearby, Amazon sells them too!

Once they’ve set, remove them from the tray and stick a BBQ skewer through two of the hearts. Then we cut out two identical triangles and glued each side centered over the skewer. Then enjoy!
