Valentine's Heart Rice Krispie Treats are a favorite of both kids and adults! They taste fantastic and are easily made with crispy cereal, gooey warm marshmallows, creamy white chocolate, and topped with cute heart sprinkles. These treats are the perfect way to tell someone you care this Valentine's Day!
In a large pot over medium-low heat, melt butter. Measure out 1 cup of marshmallows and set aside. Add remaining marshmallows to the pot and stir continuously until marshmallows are fully melted. Remove from heat. Add Rice Krispie Cereal, vanilla, and the remaining marshmallows and stir until just combined.
Generously spray a 9x13" pan with cooking spray or butter. Add Rice Krispie mix to the pan and gently pat down surface to form to the pan. Allow to completely cool.
While Rice Krispies are cooling, microwave chocolate or almond bark at 50% power for 30 second incruments. Stir and continue to microwave until just melted to prevent burning.
Once cooled, remove Rice Krispie Treats onto wax or parchment paper. Cut out heart shapes using a cookie cutter. Drizzle chocolate with a spoon over hearts. Add sprinkles and allow chocolate to fully cool before serving. Enjoy!
Gently wet fingertips with water before pushing down the Rice Krispie mix into the pan. This helps prevent mixture from sticking to your hands.
In order to keep the Rice Krispie Treats gooey and soft, don't press Rice Krispie mixture too hard into the pan.
Be sure to use fresh mini marshmallows or the treats will be too firm.
Add 1-2 drops of red food coloring to dye the chocolate pink if so desired.
