Red Velvet Cake Krispie Treats

by Laura

I have another simple treat for Valentine’s.  Regular rice krispie treats get a fun makeover just for Valentine’s Day with the addition of some red velvet cake mix and a drizzle of white chocolate on top.  The cake mix give these sweet treats their beautiful red color along with some additional flavor.  You can just cut them into squares or use a metal heart cookie cutter for fun heart shapes.  If you make the heart shapes, then you can eat all the scraps!
I also came across this cute free Happy Heart Day printable that would be prefect to add to this.  Just place each krispie in a cellophane bag, tie it with a cute ribbon, and add the printable.

  4. Whisk in the cake mix until well blended.
  5. Add the rice krispies and stir until cereal is well coated.
  6. Remove from heat and add to the prepared 9 x 13 pan. Use a piece of waxed paper or parchment paper to press the cereal into pan until level.
  7. Allow to cool.
  8. Once cooled, cut into squares with a knife or use a heart shaped cookie cutter and cut into heart shapes.
  9. Place white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 20 second intervals until melted and smooth.
