Rice Krispie Heart Treats

When I was younger, we made rice krispie treats a lot. They really are a very simple yet delicious treat! I must admit though I always have a tough time getting mine to turn out. I do not know if I use too many marshmallows or if I use too much butter. Or it honestly may be that rice krispie treats may always just be one of those things I can’t make?

Rice Krispie Heart Treats

Recently when I was at Walmart, I came across a rectangle sheet of rice krispie treats!! I could not believe it! Now I can finally make the treats without having to MAKE them! LOL! That is a win in my book! I can LOOK like I made them when I did not! I know I know. I will gladly use all the help I can get when I am baking!

Rice Krispie Treats

Here are some common questions you may have about making Rice Krispie treats! 

Making rice krispies are pretty easy (not for me, but for most people), just melt butter in a large saucepan, add marshmallows, cook until marshmallows are melted, and stir constantly.  Add in the cereal, mix well, and press into bottom of a 15x10x1-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray then once the mixture is cool, cut into heart shapes with a greased cookie cutter. 
 

HOW DO YOU MAKE COLORED RICE KRISPIE TREATS?

Follow the directions above, except before you press the mixture into the pan, squirt drops of the food coloring color that you would like the treats to be. You may want to start with one drop at a time to make sure you slowly achieve the color you want.  You don’t want to overdo the color you want.
 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR RICE KRISPIES TO SET?

They will need at least 30 minutes to cool before you can cut them.

Here is how to make these kid-friendly Chocolate Crispy Heart Treats:

Ingredients:

Crispy rice treat sheet

Heart cookie cutter (do not use plastic)

6 oz Pink chocolate wafers

Pearlized sugar crystals

Silver sprinkles

Supplies:

Silicone mat

Microwave safe bowl

Spoon

Cookie sheet

Cooking spray

Directions:

Spray the heart cookie cutter with cooking spray.

Press the cookie cutter into the crispy rice treat sheet. Just an FYI, this will be harder then you first think. Due to the firmness of the sheet of crispy rice treats, you will really have to put some muscle into it.

After you have all of the hearts cut out (the number of hearts will depend on what size of cookie cutter you use). Pour 6 oz of the chocolate wafers into a microwave safe bowl and melt them according to the manufacturers directions.

When the chocolate has reached the desired consistency, place the bowl on a cookie sheet and dip one side of each heart into the chocolate.

Then place each heart on the silicone mat. Before the chocolate hardens, sprinkle on the sugar crystals and the sprinkles. Let the chocolate sit and harden for about 1 – 2 hours. To speed things up you can also place the cookie sheet with the decorated hearts in the refrigerator until the chocolate sets.
