Today we decided to make some Valentines treats for a few of our loved ones! If we did everyone we love we would be cooking forever! How blessed are we to love THAT many people right? We found chocolate dipped rice crispy hearts and we knew that they were the ones!
It was fun and easy and while it was a tiny bit messy we loved licking the chocolate off of our fingers! Here is what you’ll need:
- 3 tablespoons of butter.
- 1 10 ounce package of regular marshmallows or 4 cups of mini marshmallows.
- 6 cups of crisp rice cereal
- 12 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Valentines Sprinkles
Use a heart shaped cookie cutter to create the heart shaped rice crispy treats and place them on a greased cookie sheet or wax/parchment paper.
Melt 12 ounces of chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Take each heart and dip it in however you want! We dipped one side but you can do the top or the bottom too! I used a spoon to push the chocolate around and tried to spread it evenly. While the chocolate is melted put your Valentines Day sprinkles on in whatever way you want!
Let them dry and then bag them, box them or eat them! Happy Valentines Day from our family to yours!
