Strawberry Cake Mix Krispie Treats

As we continue with Easter Fest, I have a quick and easy dessert. You can use for your Easter dinner. Or you could use it as a favor, place card or filler for an Easter basket.  After making the Red Velvet Cake Mix Krispies for Valentine’s, I wanted to do one for Easter using a strawberry cake mix.  The strawberry cake mix krispie treats are good just on their own. However, I decided to dip them in almond bark and ad some Easter sprinkles to take them up a notch.

If you want to use these Strawberry Cake Mix Krispie Treats for a favor, place card, or Easter basket item, I just place them in some clear cellophane bags. Then tie them up with bright pink ribbon.  I found these cute free printables over at Catch My Party. They would also work perfectly to tie to the bag as a card or place card.

Technically, you can use any flavor of cake mix in place of the strawberry version. I think lemon would be an awesome option too!

  • Whisk in the cake mix until well blended.
  • Add the rice krispies and stir until cereal is well coated.
  • 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.
  • Allow to cool.
  • Once cooled, cut in half lengthwise then cut into 8 rows creating 16 long bar shaped krispie treats.
  • Place almond bark in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 20 second intervals until melted and smooth. (or use a double boiler)

Allow for the almond bark to set and store in a container or package up in cellophane bags.

  2. How clever! I’ve been meaning to try the plain cake batter version, but just wasn’t motivated. This version is REALLY worth trying.
