Red Velvet Rice Krispie Treats

Who doesn't like Rice Krispie Treats?  What makes them better?  Making them better?  Making them Red Velvet! They were perfect for our tailgate eats. The recipe I found for them, was designed for Valentine's Day but Alabama football comes before Valentine's day.  They would be cute cut into footballs or hearts with a cookie cutter.
The addition of red velvet cake mix and vanilla is what makes these different.
Add 3 Tablespoons butter and one bag of mini marshmallows to a pot.  I like this pot because it is nonstick and the sticky stuff won't stick to the sides.
While the marshmallows are melting measure out the 6 cups of rice Krispies.
Measure out 3/4 cup dry red velvet cake mix.  Since I didn't use all of the cake mix that means I will have to make them again soon.
Just about all melted.
Remove from heat and add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.
And the dry cake mix.
Mix well in the marshmallows.
Add the cereal to the mixture.
Dump into a sprayed 9x13 inch pan.
I like using a piece of wax paper to press it down in the pan.  I saw a hint that you put your hands under cold water first before pressing down.  I think wax paper works really well.
Remove the wax paper and let sit until cool, then cut.
