Happy Valentine’s Day lovelies! Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures of any yummy desserts I baked today (gasp!). I admit, I slacked off this year. I had something wonderful planned out that required red velvet cake mix, but when I went to two stores, and both were sold out :( Even though I didn’t make this recipe, I still wanted to share it with you, in case any of you are need a last minute dessert, or want something to keep in your recipe box.
I hope you all have a wonderful day with your valentine, romantic or not. Think of it as a day to be thankful for anyone in your life that you love.
Red Velvet Rice Krispy Treats (find the original recipe here)
4 tablespoons butter
3 cups mini marshmallows
1/3 red velvet cake mix (powder only)
4 cups Rice Krispy Treats cereal
1 cup baking chips (or chocolate chips, whichever you prefer)
1 tub cream cheese frosting (or make your own!)
In a large pot over medium-low heat, melt butter. Add marshmallows and cake mix, stirring frequently until the marshmallows are melted.
Remove from heat and stir in cereal, then chocolate chips.
Press into a greased pan (a shallow baking pan works best) and allow to cool in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
Cut treats (if you have a heart-shaped cookie cutter, awesome!) and decorate with cream cheese frosting.
Enjoy with your valentine.
Have a happy day everyone! As always–it’s a cake walk!
