I had to share these adorable Rice Krispie Treats Hearts (try saying that that 5 times quickly!) that I whipped up the other day.
These are a perfect sweet treat for a little Valentine’s Day party or to send to school with the kiddos. Plus, they are cute, colorful and delicious to boot! Oh, and they are really quick and easy to make which is always a bonus!
- Rice Krispies – 1 box, about 6 Cups
- Butter – 3 tbsp
- Mini Marshmallows – 1 package
- Pink candy Melts – about a cup, melted as per package instructions
Instructions for Making the Rice Krispies Treats Valentine’s Hearts:
Heat the butter in a large microwave proof bowl along with the marshamallows for a minute. Stir, and put it back and microwave in increments of 30 seconds till fully melted. Fold in the Rice Krispies and mix together.
Spread out the rice Krispies mix on the prepped cookie sheets. Using the heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out hearts while the mix is still slightly warm.
Let the Rice Krispies hearts set while you melt the candy melts according to package instructions.
Using a lollipop stick, you can skewer each heart to make for easy dipping, or use a spoon or spatula to drizzle the pink frosting over each heart.
Get creative – maybe half dip some hearts, drizzle others and completely cover a few!
Add Valentine’s sprinkles for the final touch.
While these treats taste best immediately, they will also keep nicely in an air tight container at room temperature for a few days. You may want to separate each heart with parchment paper to prevent sticking.
Since I’ve already eaten the first batch, I’m off to make a second. I hope you’ll join me :-)
