Posted on January 31, 2017 by Christina

Our Rice Krispie Hearts dipped in chocolate were such a massive hit, we figured it was time to come up with a new twist on this favourite treat. With Valentine’s Day just about the corner, we felt heart shaped treats were the way to go – plus heart shaped goodies are perfect for your wedding dessert table! (We had been inspired by this pin, and place our own spin on it.)

Here’s what you will require to make these treats:

  • 1/two cup butter
  • 500g or 2 packages (about 80 typical) marshmallows or 10 cups miniature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 12 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
  • red meals colouring
  • heart shaped cookie cutter
  • 9″ x 9″ square pan
  • sprinkles (optional)

You will be producing two separate batches of Rice Krispies to obtain the two-tone look of your squares.

Melt butter in a huge saucepan over low heat. As soon as butter has melted, pour half of the butter into a measuring cup and set aside for your second batch.

Add half of the marshmallows and stir till fully melted.

Add 1/two teaspoon of vanilla. Stir. Add food coloring until preferred color is achieved.


Add 6 cups of Rice Krispies to marshmallow mixture. Stir well till the Rice Krispies are coated evenly.

Butter a 9″ x 9″ square pan. Add mixture and press into pan.

Repeat procedure for second batch of Rice Krispies. This time, add much more red food coloring so your batch will be a darker shade of pink.

Reduce each batches into squares. Make certain your squares are massive adequate so that your heart shaped cookie cutter will fit inside the square.

Meticulously press your cookie cutter into the squares.

If you are adding sprinkles, add them to your heart while they are nevertheless in the cookie cutter. Gently location heart filled cookie cutter into heart reduce-out that is a diverse shade. For a 3-D impact, leave heart shaped raised.

Get rid of cookie cutter. Here they are without sprinkles:

Here they are with a splash of rainbow color:

Either way, they are excellent addition to your wedding treats table!
