These cute Heart Shaped Rice Krispie Treats with Craisins are great for Valentine’s Day.  To make the treats just a touch more special I added in some chopped up Craisins for a pop of flavor. I bought a fun heart-shaped pan from Wilton years ago,  its perfect for shaping Rice Krispie Treats into a heart and then you can add a stick to the treat if you wish.  After making these, I decorated with just a drizzle of melted white chocolate and some pretty sprinkles.  You can also make in a 13″ x 9″ pan and cut into traditional squares.  These really are a great treat! Let the kids help make them, yes they’ll get sticky but the end result and their sticky ooey-gooey smiles will make it worth the mess!

Ingredients:

3 T butter, melted
5 1/2 cups mini marshmallows or 40 regular size marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1/2 cup Craisins, roughly chopped

Optional for decoration:
1/3 cup white chocolate chips, melted
sprinkles
sticks

Instructions:

In large bowl melt butter in the microwave, approximately 30 seconds.
Add marshmallows (I prefer using mini marshmallows) to melted butter & toss to coat.

013
Heat in microwave 1 minute, take out and stir carefully.
Continue melting in the microwave in 30-second increments until marshmallows are completely melted.
Add Rice Krispie cereal and Craisins, stir until mixed together.

014
Spray pan lightly with non-stick cooking spray.

012
The molded pan will hold about 1/2 cup of Rice Krispie/marshmallow mixture, just spread evenly in shaped areas.
If using a stick, press in firmly. You may need to add additional mixture on top of the stick.

015
Wait at least 3 hours until shapes have firmed up before decorating.
To drizzle white chocolate, dip fork into melted chocolate & drizzle over top of Rice Krispie Treat back & forth.
Immediately use sprinkles while chocolate is wet.
Makes 18 4″ hearts or 1 13×9 baking dish of Rice Krispie Treats.
