Rice Krispie Hearts {Valentine’s Day Treat}

With all the Valentine’s Day crafting that I’ve been doing, I thought it all needed to be balanced out with some great Valentine’s Day treats. Chocolate anyone? I also wanted to make something that would be fun to share with our new neighbors. So I came up with a super easy and beautiful V-day treat!

Rice Krispie Hearts

Ingredients:

  • 13×9 pan of Rice Krispie treat mixture {rice krispies, marshmallows, butter and vanilla}
  • Semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • Sprinkles
  • Heart-shaped cookie cutter

I cut out 9 hearts from the firmly packed rice krispie treat mixture.  Aren’t they pretty? :)

I melted the chocolate morsels in the microwave and then I dipped each heart “krispie” into the chocolate.  I smoothed out the bumps with a spatula.

I added some cute Valentine’s sprinkles to finish them!

With the pieces left over from where I cut out heart shapes, I cut them up and dipped ‘em.  You can’t have too much chocolate dipped rice krispie treats right? Ha!

To help harden the chocolate, I put the hearts in the freezer and then I bagged them up to gift to our neighbors.  Fabulous!!  I’ll definitely be making these Valentine’s Day treats again!

Do you have a go-to Valentine’s Day treat that you like to give?

  18. We made these in our youth group, but we used heart shaped silicon trays to make the heart shapes. I think these would look adorable on a stick too, lol. Not practical, but adorable. :)

  19. I make the same exact treat every Valentines day!! Rice krispie treats are great on their own, but chocolate just takes them to a whole new level :)

  23. These will be perfect to make for my daughter’s day care class. And something she can help with too!

  24. If you aren’t able to make the rice krispy treats, I noticed at christmas time there were sheets being sold in Walmart that you could cut and decorate yourself, I haven’t seen them since Christmas, I would think this would be a hit.

  25. OMG, those are the most delicious and adorable crispy treats I’ve ever seen. I’m definitely going to try this out. Thanks for sharing. :-)
