A Valentine’s Day Treat

Aprons & Stilettos Hearts

I recently whipped up a batch of heart-shaped Rice Krispies treats for my friends “Bridesmaids Meet & Greet” party and they were such a hit! These festive desserts are so easy-to-make, delicious and the perfect treat for Valentine’s Day.

  • 1 bag of large marshmallows
  • 5 cups Rice Krispies® cereal
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Melting wafers (strawberry, vanilla or chocolate)
  • Heart shaped cookie cutter

Krispies Hearts

In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Add the vanilla to the marshmallows and stir. Add Rice Krispies a few cups at a time and stir to coat.

Using a buttered spatula, press 1/2 of the Rice Krispies mixture in a buttered 8″ x 8″ pan. Turn pan over onto a cutting board. Mixture should release easily from pan. Using the cookie cutter, press into mixture to cut out the heart shapes. Repeat this step until you have run out of space, reform the mixture and continue to cut out hearts using the cookie cutter. Repeat same process with the remaining 1/2 of the Rice Krispies mixture.

In a separate bowl, heat melting wafers per the direction. If using vanilla wafers, add coloring if desired. Dip the corners of the hearts in the melted chocolate and let cool on a piece of wax paper.

Happy Valentine’s Day xx

  1. Thanks for the recipe! I just made these today, with some help, for my sons 2nd Birthday party, as he was born on Valentine’s Day! I used blue food coloring, and they turned out so cute! Thanks again for the great idea. Xoxo
