Red Velvet & Sprinkles Rice Krispies Sandwiches:
Most of the ingredients will need to be divided in half, so that you can make two batches. One of red velvet rice krispies and one of sprinkles rice krispies. I started with doing the red velvet batch first. So, to begin melt 1 Tbspn of butter in a pot over low heat on the stove. Then, add in half of the marshmallow bag, 1/2 tspn of vanilla extract, and red velvet cake mix. When marshmallows are completely melted and all ingredients are mixed together, add in 3 cups of the rice krispies cereal. Mix well together.
Then, using a spatula (helps to spray it with cooking spray) move the batch from the pot to a 9×9 baking dish (sprayed with cooking spray), flatten down and let cool.
And, you can then begin on the second batch for the sprinkles rice krispies. This is made pretty much the same except after the butter has melted add in all regular ingredients (marshmallows, vanilla extract) and not any red velvet. When marshmallows have melted add in other 3 cups of rice krispies cereal and then before moving the batch to a baking dish, add in as many sprinkles as you’d like to the mix and lightly mix together.
Let both rice krispies sit to cool, and in the mean time you can get your vanilla frosting ready. I chose to use a vanilla buttercream frosting I had previously made for another recipe from Wine and Glue they have a delicious recipe, but you can use any recipe you’d like or even a store bought one.
When rice krispies have cooled (about 20 minutes or so) you can then begin putting the sandwiches together.
Start by taking a heart shaped cookie cutter (i used a medium size one and was able to make 6-8 sandwiches) and making hearts into each batch. Make sure you make the same amount in each one. Then take one heart from one batch, spread vanilla frosting on the top, and then place another heart from the other batch on top.
Continue this until all hearts are used and you have all rice krispies and frosting sandwiches!
