♥ Valentines Day Rice Krispie Treats ♥

Happy Valentines Day!!  

I wanted to make my kids an extra special after school snack to celebrate Valentines Day this year. I decided to make them some rice crispy treats cut into heart shapes and decorated with gel frosting and sprinkles. Thankfully, my son didn’t mind that they were pink because they tasted so good. These fun and delicious treats took me less than an hour to make and put a HUGE smile on my kids’ faces. You can’t beat that!

Place the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add several drops of red food coloring and stir occasionally until the butter is completely melted. Add the mini marshmallows to the pot and cook, stirring constantly, until melted. Add more red food coloring until you reach your desired color.

Once the marshmallows have completely melted, remove from the heat and add the rice krispies and stir  until evenly coated with the melted marshmallows  Coat a large 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray then pour the mixture into the baking dish. Spray a piece of wax paper with cooking spray, then use the paper to mash the rice krispie treats down into the dish evenly.

Let it cool for 5 minutes before using cooking cutters to cut into heart shapes.  Decorate with gel frosting and sprinkles.

Serve to your special little Valentines’ and watch their faces light up. Enjoy!
