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


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

Optional Extras:
Chocolate for drizzling/dipping
Sprinkles for decorating


  1. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Once melted, add marshmallows and stir constantly until completely melted into butter. Remove from heat.
  2. Add in the Rice Krispie cereal and quickly, give a stir until coated in 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 2-3 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.
