Valentine’s Pink Rice Krispie Hearts
Mia and I made these over the weekend and they were so cute and delicious! Once you make homemade rice krispie treats you will never go back to store bought. They are so easy!
What you need:
6 cups of Rice Krispies
4 cups of mini marshmallows
3 T. butter
Red food coloring
Heart cookie cutters
11"x15" baking dish
1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Once the butter is melted, add the marshmallows, stir and melt. Once melted add in the red food coloring. Add in slowly – you can always add in more to get the desired color! Once incorporated and you like the color, add in the rice krispies. Stir until everything is combined. Spread them out in a large 11"x15" pan. You can also use a 9"x13" pan, but I find that making them thinner helps little ones cut though them on their own with the cookie cutters.
2. Use the parchment paper to push the rice krispies into the pan. This will help with sticky fingers!
3. Cut out hearts with cookie cutters - it is also easiest to do this while they are still warm.
4. Similar to cookie dough, you can pinch all the remaining scraps together and press down to make more hearts… or you can eat the scraps …like I did!
Enjoy with your sweetie!
