Prep Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
Servings: 18 treats

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 10 oz mini-marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup red velvet cake mix
  • 5 cups Rice Krispies or other crispy rice cereal
  • Valentine's Day sprinkles optional

Instructions

  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Spray heart shaped cookie cutters OR a 7x11" baking dish with non-stick spray. Set everything aside.
  • In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Stir in the red velvet cake mix. Add Rice Krispies cereal and stir until well-coated.
  • Gently press warm cereal mixture into heart shaped cutters (or prepared pan) with oiled or buttered hands. Do not force mixture in, otherwise your treats will wind up hard and crunchy. Add sprinkles, if desired, and gently press sprinkles into tops of treats. Remove from cutter and place on parchment to cool completely. If you put your treats into a pan, allow to cool completely before cutting into desired shapes. Store treats in an airtight container up to one week.
