Valentine’s Rice Krispies Treats

We are absolutely in love with making Rice Krispie Treats recipes in every way. We loooove making them with chocolate usually, as we did with these Nutella Cookie Dough Rice Krispies Treats, or these Fudge Crispy Rice Treats using homemade melted fudge. We even made ’em egg shaped for Jurassic World Dino Eggs, too! These Valentine’s Rice Krispies Treats perfectly fit right in! 🙂

Heart Shaped Valentine’s Rice Krispies Treats

Having made shaped Rice Krispies Treats before, I knew we’d have to spray down our silicone heart-shaped pan before molding the larger hearts. Spraying any sort of pan you will use to shape your treats makes it easier to pop them out, especially when the Rice Krispies Treats are fresh from being mixed with the hot marshmallow and still really sticky.

For this recipe, you’re going to be dividing up your Rice Krispies Treats mixture between two sets of colors. You’ll make more of the pink Rice Krispies Treats mixture than you will the purple, as the pink is the larger of the two heart shapes and we’ll need more to fill the pan. You might even have some leftover, it all depends on the type of pan you have! Extra leftovers to snack on can’t be all that bad, can it? 🙂

Get the kids involved in this, too! Fun for kids to see how the Valentine’s Rice Krispies Treats take shape in the silicone heart-shaped mold along with using the smaller heart-shaped cookie cutter! They can cut out the shapes til their heart’s content (pun unintended, but perfect)!

This recipe is easy to double, triple, or quadruple should you need to make a lot of treats for a Valentine’s party! And while I didn’t drizzle anything on them, because I wanted you all to see the cute purple heart inside the pink heart, you could lightly drizzle a little white icing carefully and maybe add heart shaped sprinkles? Or dip the underside in candy coating? The ideas are endless here, friends!
