Red Velvet Rice Krispie Treats

Red Velvet Rice Krispie Treats

Yes, more red velvet. Red Velvet Pancakes were just not enough. Valentine’s Day gets me all in the red velvet mood, what can I say? You guys are okay with this, right?!

Red Velvet Rice Krispie Treats

Valentine’s Day always makes me miss being a kid. I used to love going to the store to pick out cards to hand out in class. I usually went for ones that had a Disney princess or the girliest ones I could find. I remember giving the “coolest” cards to my closest friends. Valentine’s Day at school was always kind of a waste of a school day. Decorating bags or boxes to hold all of the cards, and then of course came all the treats and candy. And then of course, it was always fun to go through cards. It always sucked when someone else gave out the same cards as you did.

Red Velvet Rice Krispie Treats

These red velvet rice krispie treats are perfect to bring to a school party, but also perfect to enjoy with a glass of champagne! I love the look of the pink candy melts drizzled on top, but you can also use white chocolate (but, you guys know how I feel about that…). Oh, and then sprinkles. Sprinkles are a must.

    “It always sucked when someone else gave out the same cards as you did.” Totally agree! I hated that!

    There is no such thing as too much red velvet anything in my opinion. These are so cute and kid friendly. :) I love that cake plate too… swoon! :) I wonder how I can get my hubby to get me one for Valentine’s day. :)

    What a fun idea! And the way you’ve cut, drizzled and sprinkled these make them elegant enough for that glass of champagne!
