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.
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!
½ cup butter
1 (10.5 oz) bag mini marshmallows
¾ cup Ducan Hines red velvet cake mix
8 cups rice krispies cereal
