How to Make Totally Adorable Valentine’s Theme Rice Krispie Treats
First you’re going to melt the butter over medium heat. Then you’ll add in marshmallows, stirring frequently until fully melted and mixed. Next you’ll add in food coloring (you can add more for a deeper red).
Pour your Rice Krispie cereal in a large bowl, then pour in your marshmallow mixture. Stir immediately and continue until evenly coated.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, then spray it with your favorite nonstick spray.
Pour Rice Krispie mixture on to medium sized cookie sheet, spray your hands with the nonstick spray, and spread the mixture out evenly to cover the entire sheet.
Cover with sprinkles, and press them into your sheet just a bit.
Let the Rice Krispies sit for at least 15 minutes, then cut out fun Valentines shapes with cookie cutters and enjoy!
