Red Velvet Rice Krispie TreatsPosted by Cupcake Kelly on Aug 14, 2011 in Brownies & Squares, Chocolate | 21 comments
These are so easy to make and they don’t require any baking at all. These are a fun twist on an old classic. I brought one into work to have after lunch and everyone at work looked horrified and amazed at the same time at the sight of these!
These don’t taste overly of red velvet but they sure are cute. They turn red by adding a little red velvet cake mix to the melted butter.
I still have a whole box of Rice Krispies left so expect to see a few more of these in the next few weeks.
3 tbs unsalted butter
1/2 cup Red Velvet Cake Mix (you could make your own mix with some flour, cocoa powder and red gel food coloring)
3 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup white chocolate chips
- Lightly grease a square or rectangle baking tray. It doesn't matter what size. The smaller the tray the thicker the treats will be.
- In a large saucepan over medium heat melt the butter. Once melted stir in the cake mix and marshmallows.
- Once melted take off the heat and stir in the Rice Krispies (I stirred in half of the white chocolate chips. Don't over mix or they'll melt). Press into the prepared pan using a greased spatula or baking paper. Press in the rest of the chocolate chips on top.
- Once cool cut into squares.
