I just love homemade Rice Krispie Treats! They are so much better than the store bought kind in the blue wrapper. These are soft, yet crispy, a little gooey (from the real butter) and perfectly sweet.  Plus, you can whip up a batch faster than you could drive to the store to buy a box of them. Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, I wanted to make them a little special, so I broke out the cupid sprinkles and heart-shaped cookie cutter. A little almond bark helps keep the sprinkles in place. Here’s how I made them:

Valentine Frosted Rice Krispie Treats

6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
40 marshmallows
3 tablespoons butter
Non-stick cooking spray
6 oz. almond bark
  1. Spray a 13×9 inch pan and a rubber spatula with cooking spray.
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, heat the butter and marshmallows for 2-3 minutes, until the marshmallows are melted. Be sure to stir after 2 minutes, then add more time, if needed.
  3. Add the Rice Krispies to the marshmallow mixture and stir to coat evenly.
  4. Press the mixture into your pan and allow it to cool to slightly warmer than room temperature.
  5. Flip the Rice Krispie Treats onto wax paper or aluminum foil and cut them with your cookie cutter, or into 2-inch squares.
  6. Melt the almond bark in a microwave-safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds.
  7. Spread the melted almond bark onto the Rice Krispie Treats and top with sprinkles.

Hope you enjoy!
