Made with a sprayed heart-shaped muffin pan (which, I might say, is pretty convenient for making all things Valentine’s), these adorable Valentine’s Rice Krispies Treats are easy to assemble, decorate, and serve! I always aim to have the kids help in some manner when I create recipes, and this one is no different. You’ve seen my Rice Krispies Treats helpers before when I made my Nutella Cookie Dough Rice Krispies Treats. My kiddos LOVE being in the kitchen with me! 🙂 Check out my friend Mel’s M&M Heart Shaped Valentine Rice Krispies Treats too!

Minions Valentine’s Rice Krispies Treats for Parties

We really loved making these colored Rice Krispies Treats. I did it once before with the Valentine’s Rice Krispies Treats recipe, and those colors came out exceptionally well. I wasn’t sure how strong and intense of a color this yellow gel food coloring would produce in this case. Man oh man, isn’t the color simply stunning? Like sunshine yellow! It just fills me with happiness!

Ready-made fondant comes in pretty clutch here when creating the Minions’ eyes. You already know how big of a fan I am of ready-made fondant for all my dessert recipes as opposed to attempting to create it from scratch. I’m a huge fan of using what you know and focusing on your strengths. Let me tell ya, fondant is not a strength for me having failed quite miserably in the past (ahem). I embrace my suckage in this department, hence my hearty love of ready-made lol. Also, I’ve come a long way in my dessert decorating, haven’t I? 🙂

Grab the kids and get ’em involved! Let them help you decorate these Minions Valentine’s Rice Krispies Treats for their parties and special occasions! Children of all sizes can help you mix the Rice Krispies Treats in a bowl and press the mixture into the heart-shaped muffin pan. Encourage the littles to help you roll the fondant to create the Minions’ eyeballs but save the frosting decoration for the Minions’ goggles for older kiddos with a bit more hand control and dexterity.

Ingredients for Minions Valentine's Rice Krispies Treats

Spray your heart-shaped muffin pan with cooking spray and set aside.

Spray Pan for Minions Valentine's Rice Krispies Treats

In a medium-sized saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Once it is melted, add mini marshmallows. Mix constantly until all the mini marshmallows have melted. Add two small drops of yellow gel food coloring. (Yes, only two!) Mix until marshmallow mixture is completely tinted with the yellow coloring. Remove the saucepan from heat and add Rice Krispies cereal.

Ready to Make Minions Valentine's Rice Krispies Treats

Fold until all the Rice Krispies cereal is completely coated with the marshmallow mixture.

Mixing Minions Valentine's Rice Krispies Treats

Scoop your Rice Krispies treat mixture into each heart-shaped cavity of your silicone muffin pan, patting it down so it’s packed well and is flat on top (so it’ll sit well). Allow time for it to set and cool completely, approximately about 30 minutes.

Setting Minions Valentine's Rice Krispies Treats

Roll out six spheres from your white fondant, about ½ an inch in size.

Rolling Fondant for Minions Valentine's Rice Krispies Treats

Flatten each sphere slightly for the eyeballs.

Shaping Fondant for Minions Valentine's Rice Krispies Treats

With your edible black food marker, draw one pupil in the center of each fondant eye.

Drawing Eyeballs for Minions Valentine's Rice Krispies Treats

Remove your cereal treats from the heart-shaped muffin pan. Place one eye in the center (usually, the rice cereal treats are sticky enough to hold it, but you can add some decorating frosting on the back of the eye to secure it further).

Adding Eyes to Minions Valentine's Rice Krispies Treats

Using Wilton decorating tip #8, frost each cereal treat with black decorating frosting. Make a contour around each eye and then add lines on each side (these black lines act like their goggles).
