It’s the month of LOVE y’all. Do you all celebrate Valentine’s Day in a big way? When I was younger I didn’t really enjoy celebrating Valentine’s Day. I don’t know if it was my lack of a significant other, or just the over the top hearts, googley eyes and Hallmark cards. But as I’ve gotten older I’ve been a bit more in to celebrating the day of love, at least with my kids. They love allllll the holidays, and having them get excited about the day makes this mama heart happy.
These treats are fairly easy and super fun to make with your kids. Outside of the sticky mess you have to clean up this recipe is a breeze. Enjoy!
- Rice Krispies
- Large bag of Marshmallows-10oz bag
- 3 Tablespoons Butter
- One Bag of White Chocolate Chips-I used Ghiradelli
- Valentine’s Day Sprinkles 🙂
- Heart Shaped Cookie Cutters
- Red Food Coloring-optional
Make Rice Krispie Treats according to directions on the box. If you want to make the treats pink or red this is when you would add food coloring as you are mixing together. Once the bars are cooled you can cut out pieces in the shape of hearts. After your hearts are cut, melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave so they are ready for dipping your hearts in. Dip one half of your hearts into the chocolate and place on a wax paper lined tray. Then sprinkle the Valentine’s Day sprinkles on top of the melted chocolate. This was my son’s favorite part! Repeat with all the hearts and then leave to cool. And DONE. Easy, fun for the kids and oh so festive. Happy Valentine’s Day, Mamas-hope you are spreading all the love and getting some back in return. xo
