Valentine Cake Batter Rice Krispies

I admit...I tweaked the recipe a little.  I did add more buttah.  And I put 4 cut strawberries in the food processor and added it to the mixture.  The first picture shows the mixing process after the butter, marshmallow and cake mix was added to the cereal.  It broke my rubber spatula!!  I have never been an expert into making rice krispie treats...I mean the first time I made them years ago I messed up! How pathetic is that??  After seeing this recipe I was really excited to try it!  Sprayed the cookie sheet and packed the treats level and refrigerated for 3 hours.  My sister was here when the kids were talking about having some.  Told her to wait a few minutes and I would send some home with her for the kids.  I couldn't find my clear treat!  So we just put them on sticks.  But I wanted to save a few for when I go see the doc tomorrow so we fit 2 hearts in a snack size bag.  So two bags are ready to go tomorrow.  The bad part of making this was that when you are cutting the hearts out you are left with "scraps".  So Dawn and I were snacking on the scraps while I cut them out.  Mmmmm...I highly recommend this way of making rice krispie treats!  I was skeptical but pleasingly happy with the taste!!  Enjoy!


  1. Those look yummy. I don't like making rice crispy treats - my hubby does a good job with them so it works out. I love eating them though... and so do the kids. We haven't really ventured far from the basic recipe, but might get adventurous one of these days.

  2. It is so easy! You will be shocked at how good they turned out! My first reaction was how the cake mix will smooth in with it being dry. Worked like a charm! Come back and let me know how it turned out for you!
