We all know that Valentine’s Day is my least favorite holiday (it’s a close tie between Halloween and NYE), but after making these cute little chocolate dipped, heart shaped Rice Krispie treats, I kind of don’t hate it as much. I mean, how could one hate a holiday where this is the preferred dessert? Rice Krispie treats are always one of my favorites but I rarely ever make them. I think I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve made them as an adult. I always get excited though when I see them at a party or potluck and end up devouring them and ignoring anything else going on at the party. I should definitely start to make these more often because they are super easy, delicious and fun to transform easily with cookie cutters and some colored sprinkles.
To take them from classic treats, to over the top cute Valentine’s Day Rice Krispie treats, I just did a few additional steps to go from square to absolutely adorable. A heart shaped cookie cutter is all you need plus toothpicks and a little printed paper for the arrows. If you like your treats extra sweet, dip a corner (or the whole thing) in some white chocolate and top with sprinkles for an extra special festive touch. Here’s how I did it!
