Red Velvet Rice Crispy Treats

0 comments

Valentine’s Day is the most interesting holiday for me. It brings out a variety of powerful feelings and visions that we had not seen before Thanksgiving, Christmas or Halloween. We have enemies, lovers, chocolate lovers and fanatics about trade.

You can see everything in the films released on Valentine’s Day (or weekend)! There will always be some horror movies (for people who oppose Valentine’s Day), there will always be some dirty romances (for women who travel with all single friends), and there will always be some comedies (for those who want to get rid of individual sadness).
You can pour crunchy rice in the pan and then “poke” each heart, but there is a pile of crumbs and chunks of minced meat, and you decide to spend some extra time filling the cutter. Do what is best for you!

Red Velvet Rice Crispy Treats


Description

Valentine’s Day is the most interesting holiday for me. It brings out a variety of powerful feelings and visions that we had not seen before Thanksgiving, Christmas or Halloween. We have enemies, lovers, chocolate lovers and fanatics about trade.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 6 C. Rice Crispy cereal
  • 1 bag mini marshmallows about 10.5 oz.
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/31/2 C. dry Red Velvet cake mix sift to remove any lumps

Heart cookie cutter and melted white chocolate for decoration


Instructions

  1. Butter a 9 X13 pan OR a cookie cutter, depending on how you want to serve your treats.
  2. Measure cereal and set aside.
  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. Add cake mix and stir. (Add more or less depending on how strong of a taste you want.)
  5. Slowly add in rice crispy cereal and gently fold until coated.
  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. Drizzle melted white chocolate or frost with cream cheese frosting!

Notes

Rice Crispy (Krispie) treats have always been a huge weakness for me.  Maybe it’s because they only take about 3 minutes to make.
