Red Velvet Cake Krispie Treats

Red Velvet Krispie Treats | www.cookiesandcups.com

These Red Velvet Cake Krispie Treats are a simple spin on the Basic Rice Krispie Treat! And we amped them up with a yummy frosting filling!

First and foremost I have to let you know these were my kiddo’s idea. He has recently taken up an interest in giving me flavor combinations that sound…well…interesting.

For example, this week I let each of the kids invent their own ice cream flavors that we made in the ice cream maker. His recipe was peanut butter cup, cookie dough, Golden Oreo with a Strawberry Syrup swirl.

Otherwise known as Vomit Flavor.

But sometimes he has good ideas. Like these Red Velvet Cake Krispie Treats. Which he told me HAD to include frosting. Because, hello…CAKE.

I might be raising a genius.Red Velvet Krispie Treats | www.cookiesandcups.comHonestly these couldn’t be easier.

And the easy way to stuff krispie treats is to line a large jelly roll pan with foil.  Spray lightly with cooking spray and set aside.

Next up you’ll need some Red Velvet Cake mix.  We used 1/3 cup.

Go ahead and get your marshmallows ready.

We used large marshmallows on this day because it was all we had in the house.  I usually prefer to use mini marshmallows because they melt faster.

Whatever, survival of the fittest.

Of course the little dude had to be involved…

    I read this post on Thursday and knew that I had to make these! Didn’t have red velvet cake mix, so I used white cake mix instead. Filled mine with vanilla buttercream and topped with sprinkles. Seriously amazing!

    OMG I totally made some of these a few weekends ago, but I used cocoa rice kripsies and red velvet cake emulsion. I was trying to find a way to get cream cheese in – duh, frosting! I did have someone tell me she thought they were too sweet, though. It’s ok – we aren’t friends anymore 🙂 I’ll definitely have to add frosting on the next batch!

  3. I’m a total fan of the stuffed rice krispie treat! Yes, you’re raising a genius!
    Your son makes me feel like I need to get a bit more creative with my ice cream making…yet that flavor combo won’t be my first (or ten zillionth) choice 😉 I’m sure his next one will be better!
