Valentine’s Day heart treats
We always love getting into the spirit of each holiday as it approaches, and celebrating LOVE is no different! This weekend, the kids and I got into the Valentine’s Day groove and decided to make something sweet. We might be skipping cards this year and making a batch of these Valentines to pass out at school instead!
Whether you’re celebrating with your sweetheart or helping the kids with their school Valentines, these heart-shaped Rice Krispies Treats dipped in chocolate for Valentine’s Day will melt anyone’s heart! Easy, tasty, and affordable, here’s how to make them…
Heart-shaped Rice Krispies treats recipe
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 1 – 10 oz. package of marshmallows
- 3 tbsp. butter
- red or pink-colored candy melts
You will also need:
- heart-shaped cookie cutter
- cookie sheet
- rolling pin
- wax or parchment paper
Step 1: Make the Rice Krispies Treats
Let’s start making these rice krispie hearts! These instructions are straight from the Original Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats recipe. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add the marshmallows. Stir until they’re completely melted. Add the Rice Krispies cereal and stir until well coated.
Spoon into your cookie sheet and evenly press the mixture all the way in. What I did next was to place a sheet of parchment paper over the top and roll my rolling pin over it to flatten it out completely, making sure it’s pressed all the way in there, nice and even.
Step 2: Cut into heart shapes
Before the Rice Krispies Treats cool completely, gently press your heart-shaped cookie cutter into the treats as many times as you can across the cookie sheet. Remove hearts from the cookie sheet, press the remaining edges of the Rice Krispies Treats together again, roll it out over parchment paper and cut out a few more hearts. When you’re finished making the Rice Krispies heart treats, clear the cookie sheet by discarding (or eat it!) the rest of the edges and place your parchment paper on it.
Step 3: Dip treats in chocolate and set
Heat your chocolate candy melts according to package instructions. I chose to dip half of the hearts into the Wilton Red Candy Melts, then douse them with Valentine’s Day colored sprinkles. Carefully place each heart back onto the parchment papered cookie sheet. Once you’ve dipped them all to your liking, pop the cookie sheet n the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes, or until the chocolate has hardened. I think they came out so cute!
