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!
Once 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!!

- 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.
