Valentine’s makes me happy-all the pink and red and glittery and the treats and doing nice things for the people you love! It’s perfect. Making cute heart shaped Rice Krispie treats for Valentine’s Day was a lot of fun-especially because they are cherry chip flavored and I LOVE cherry chip! These are easy to make and can be stored for quite a while-even frozen in a GladWare® container-so get ready to bake!
I did two versions-just those classic square shaped, but also I made them in fun heart shapes!
So much fun! And did I mention YUMMY?!
Ok, let’s do this!
Cherry Chip Valentine’s Krispie Treats Recipe:
- 6 C Rice Krispies
- 5 Tbsp butter or margarine
- 1 and 1/2 10 oz. bags of marshmallows
- 1 C cherry chip cake mix
- Several drops of pink or red food coloring
- 1 bag of white chocolate chips
- Valentine’s Sprinkles
Pour your Rice Krispies into a large bowl and set aside. In a medium size bowl add your marshmallows and butter and microwave for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently, until totally melted.
Add a couple of drops of food coloring to your mixture.
Quickly, while it’s still hot, stir in 1 C cherry chip cake mix.
Pour over your Rice Krispies and mix until evenly coated.
Grease your hands and press these into either a 9 x 13 inch (well greased) pan or, if you prefer them thinner, a well greased cookie sheet.
Allow to set up for a few minutes.
Melt your white chocolate in the microwave, stirring frequently.
Spread this over your Rice Krispie treats and then quickly add your sprinkles.
Once it’s completely set up, use a cookie cutter to cut out hearts.
I had to use my cookie cutter to give me a template and then use a knife to cut them.
I stored mine in a GladWare® container to keep them good for a long time! You can even freeze them!
I have to admit, with January here I’ve been doing a lot of cleaning out-fridge, pantry, freezer. And it’s made me realize just how much food I waste! I hate to throw away perfectly good food, and yet I find myself doing it! Such a waste.
That’s why I love these handy GladWare® containers. They keep my food good longer so that we can enjoy it and not waste it AND I can use it to freeze my food if I want and really keep it good for a long time! In fact, I still have some of my fudge waiting for me in a nice GladWare® container! Yum!
I hope you have a blast making and eating these!
