Rice Krispie Squares

Looking for a quick, easy and super cute little Valentines treat? Look no further!! I present to you…the classic Rice Krispie square! Well in this case, Rice Krispie hearts!

Awhile back my husband requested these Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Squares but before I made those, I couldn’t remember the last time I had rice krispie squares. I started my Valentines baking when I saw the Rice Krispie cereal still sitting in my cupboard and I knew exactly what to make!

IMG_7098Once I finished making these little treats up, I forgot how deliciously yummy…and addicting…rice krispies can be! They’re so easy and fun to make! I wanted to include them in my Valentine treat box so I chose to cut them into hearts using my heart cookie cutters. I melted some white chocolate chips to drizzle on then topped them off with some Valentine themed sprinkles.

Yummy, easy and cute to boot! You can’t go wrong!!

 

 

 

Rice Krispie Squares


Ingredients:

1/4 cup unsalted butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
5 cups Rice Krispie cereal

Optional:
Chocolate for drizzling/dipping
Sprinkles for decorating

Directions:

  1. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Once melted, add in marshmallows and stir constantly until completely melted into butter. No lumps should remain. Remove from heat.
  2. Add in the Rice Krispie cereal and stir until well coated with marshmallow.
  3. Pour Rice Krispie mixture into a 9×13 pan and press down firmly to even it out. Let cool before cutting into desired shape or size.
  4. Keep in an airtight container for up to 2 days. To freeze squares, place them in an airtight container and separate layers by wax paper. Freeze up to 6 weeks, remove from freezer and let stand at room temperature for at least 15 minutes before eating.
