Valentine's Day Rice Krispie Treats

Food & Party 7

Wouldn't these cute heart-shaped Rice Krispie Treats (courtesy of be perfect to bring to a class party on Valentine's Day? And I'd bet your kids would love to pitch in and help make them.

And if you don't want to go the food coloring route, you could also mix in tiny red cinnamon candies or mini chocolate chips for a special touch!

Valentine's Day Rice Krispie Treats from

3 tablespoons butter

1 16 oz. bag of large marshmallows

Red food coloring

9 cups of Rice Krispie cereal

Cookie sheet

Wax Paper

Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the marshmallows to the pot and stir until melted. Stir in drops of red food coloring until the mixture is the desired shade of pink or red. Stir in the Rice Krispies until they are evenly coated with marshmallow.

Spoon the Rice Krispies mixture onto the cookie sheet and allow to cool for one minute. With waxed paper, flatten the Rice Krispies mixture to an even thickness. Press the heart-shaped cookie cutter into the mixture to create the Valentine Rice Krispie treats. If the Rice Krispies mixture gets too hard to cut into hearts, put it in a bowl and microwave it for 15 seconds.
