Red Velvet Rice Krispie Treats
Prep time
Total time
This is a festive (and decadent) version of the classic rice krispie treat. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter for Valentine's Day or a star-shaped one for the 4th of July!
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 6 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 box red velvet cake mix
  • 6 cups Cocoa Kripies cereal
  1. Melt butter over medium-low heat.
  2. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted.
  3. Add cake mix and stir well until thoroughly combined.
  4. Add cereal and stir until cocoa krispies are evenly coated. (It does get a bit thick, so call in reserves if you need to!)
  5. Spread into a greased 9x13-inch pan. Chill 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
Rice krispie treats are always best if served the same day but you can store leftovers in a tightly covered container. If you prefer thinner treats, spread mix into a greased cookie sheet with edges. Original recipe by Tiffany (@foodfinery).
