Easy to make Valentine's Day treat

We are always looking for fun recipes that we can make with the kids and rice krispie treats are always a favorite!

If you have really little one’s, this is the perfect Valentine’s Day project to do with them. You make the treats and let them decorate the heart shaped treats.

This is also great for a classroom project. Have the rice krispie treats already cut out and bring Valentine’s Day sprinkles and frosting and let them decorate them and then eat theme up! You will be the room mom of the year!

If your school won’t let you bring food into the classroom anymore, you may want to try these Heart Shaped Crayons to hand out. My kids classmates went crazy over them! If you are anything like me, we had tons of broken crayons laying around the house.

Want to go the extra mile with this dessert? Try dipping them in chocolate and then adding the sprinkles!

Valentine's Rice Krispie Hearts

How do you shape Rice Krispie Treats?

  • When cutting treats, remove them from the pan in one big piece and place onto a cutting board. Then, spray your heart cookie cutter so that it is coated with cooking spray and cut the treats into your hearts. This will also work with other holidays and themes. You can use any shape cookie cutter and make a super cute dessert for your party!

Tips for Making Perfect Rice Krispie Treats?

  • Spray the spoon with cooking spray before using to stir the melted marshmallows into the cereal.
  • Spray your pan with cooking spray to avoid the treats from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • Use wax paper to press the mixture into the pan (so it doesn’t stick to your hands) or a buttered spatula.
  • Store the treats by covering with foil or wrapping individually. Do not store them in the refrigerator as they will get soggy.
  • If you are just cutting your rice krispie treats into squares, spray a pizza cutter (or knife) with cooking spray first. The pizza cutter works the best!

How do you color Rice Krispie Treats?

Looking to step up your rice krispie treat game? How about adding some color to the treats! That’s right, it is really easy to make colored treats. After you combine the butter and marshmallow, just add food coloring to the melted marshmallows! Once you get your desired color, then add in the cereal!
