Red Velvet Rice Crispy Treats


  • 6 C. Rice Crispy cereal
  • 1 bag mini marshmallows about 10.5 oz.
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/3-1/2 C. dry Red Velvet cake mix sift to remove any lumps

Heart cookie cutter and melted white chocolate for decoration


  1. 1. Butter a 9 X13 pan OR a cookie cutter, depending on how you want to serve your treats.
  2. 2. Measure cereal and set aside.
  3. 3. In a large microwave proof bowl, add marshmallows, butter and vanilla extract. Microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds, remove and stir. Continue heating in 20 second increments until smooth.
  4. 4. Add cake mix and stir. (Add more or less depending on how strong of a taste you want.)
  5. 5. Slowly add in rice crispy cereal and gently fold until coated.
  6. 6. Dump into your buttered pan and press firmly until flat OR if you want heart shaped treats take small amounts of rice crispy treats and stuff into your cookie cutters until flat. I like to do this on parchment paper so it doesn't get too sticky and I always butter my hands.
  7. 7. Drizzle melted white chocolate or frost with cream cheese frosting!
