A Valentine's Day Bundt Cake
Valentine's Day is a few days away and it's one of my favorite holidays to bake for. Who am I kidding, every holiday is my favorite holiday to bake for. LOL! What can I say, I get excited about a little festive baking! But today I'm actually sharing an easy no bake dessert for the holiday of love. It's a rice krispies Bundt cake!
This Strawberry Rice Krispies Cake is so cute and so yummy! Plus, it's no-bake, so you don't even have to turn your oven on. It's an impressive dessert to serve your Valentine and easy enough for the kids to help with.
Ingredients you need for this recipe
The cake includes just 4 ingredients:
Rice krispy cereal - Use the brand of your choice.
Mini marshmallows - You can use regular sized marshmallows if that's all you have.
Strawberry gelatin - I tested the recipe with sugar free strawberry Jello.
Butter - I prefer unsalted butter.
How to Make Strawberry Rice Krispies Cake
- Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Then add the marshmallows and Jello.
- Keep stirring until it's all melted and mixed together.
- Stir in the cereal and pour into a greased Bundt pan. Press it down and smooth the top.
- Let cool and invert onto a large plate.

Decorating your Strawberry Rice Krispies Cake
I used these semi-sweet chocolate chips and colored candy melts to drizzle on top. You can choose whatever colors you like. White chocolate would be nice. Maybe purple and pink instead of red. Pick your favorites.
Pour melted chocolate into a disposable pastry bag and cut the tip off to drizzle chocolate over cake. Repeat with remaining colors. Then add sprinkles, if desired.
This cake's got Valentine's Day written all over it. And the chocolate/strawberry combo is perfect!
Slice it up just like a regular cake. It's very easy to cut!
And it's so delicious! I'm so pleased with how this cake came out! Make it for your sweetie this weekend and enjoy!

- Invert cake onto a large plate. Melt chocolate chips in a small microwave safe bowl with the microwave set on high for 1 minute. Stir until smooth. Pour into a disposable plastic pastry bag. Cut the tip of the bag to create a very small hole. Drizzle chocolate over cake. Repeat process with remaining candy melts, doing the red first and then the pink last.

My sons birthday is at the end of January. What substitutions could I use? Not sure he would let me do a pink cake. Looks so great! He is a huge rice krispie fan & so is mom!

Here's one I did that is with the traditional Rice Krispies Treat flavor and color. I did it for July 4th, but you could pick any color of candy melt that you wanted to drizzle on the top. Whatever colors are your son's favorite! Here's the link or search my blog for Patriotic Rice Krispies Cake: https://www.momlovesbaking.com/patriotic-rice-krispies-cake/
