Hi friends! Here’s something red for the Valentine’s day coming up. It’s something really easy for those tight on time. It’s also something that won’t break the piggy bank, but it’s a nice and thoughtful gift for the ones you care about.

The red velvet flavor wasn’t very strong with 1/2 cup of mix, so I added a bit more to take it up a notch. You could also add heart sprinkles on the top when you’re done to make it even more lovey-dovey, but I’m good with just the redness of the rice crispies.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Red Velvet Rice Crispy Treats

Ingredients

  • 1 (10.5 oz) bag of mini marshmallows
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup red velvet cake mix
  • 6 cups rice crispies cereal
  • sprinkles for topping (optional for that extra pizazz!-- which I didn't add because these babies were just for me)

Directions

  1. Melt butter and mini marshmallows over low heat. When the marshmallows are completely melted, mix in the vanilla and red velvet cake mix.
  2. Remove from heat and carefully stir in the rice crispies until evenly coated.
  3. Pour the batter into a lined or greased 13"x9" pan and press down.
  4. Wait until cooled and cut to serve.
