Rice Crispy Treats

  • 2 bags Mini Marshmallows
  • 3/4 cup Butter (melt for 1 minute in the microwave before adding to marshmallows)
  • 1 box Rice Crispy cereal

White Chocolate Drizzle

  • 1 cup White Chocolate Melting Pieces
  • Food Coloring if desired
  • Valentine's Day Sprinkles if desired


Rice Crispy Treats

  • In a large, microwave-safe bowl, add 2 bags of mini marshmallows & 3/4 Cups very softened butter (slightly melted is great...basically we don't want cold hard butter straight from the fridge).
  • Cook marshmallows in the microwave until completely melted. To avoid overcooking your marshmallows, use 30-second increments to ensure they are being watched closely. Stir each time your 30 seconds end
  • Once the mixture is soupy and smooth, it's done. This process does not take long!!!Make sure the butter and melted marshmallows are thoroughly mixed so your treats are not tough
  • Start adding your rice crispy cereal a little at a time.Keep adding and mixing until you've reached the desired consistency. You want to keep a nice balance of cereal to marshmallow mixture. The cereal should be coated evenly and your mound of rice crispy treat should feel nice and firm, but able to be shaped
  • Pat treats into a greased jelly roll sheet pan.
  • Let cool completely before cutting out heart shapes.

Shaping into hearts

  • Grab your heart-shaped cookie cutter.
  • Cut out as many hearts as you can from your jelly roll pan.
  • Place them on parchment paper as you go.

White Chocolate Drizzle

  • Place 1 cup of white chocolate melting chips in a microwave-safe bowl.Follow the same guidelines as you did melting the marshmallows and butter. Watch your melting chocolate closely!
  • Stir periodically through melting and do not overcook. Stirring helped the process along.
  • Once melted, add food coloring (if desired) and put chocolate in a piping bag.
  • Drizzle over the treats and allow the chocolate to set up and completely harden.
  • If no food coloring is desired, drizzle the white chocolate over the treats and add some fun Valentine's Day sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet.
