Cherry Valentine Rice Krispie Treats

We love these Cherry Rice Krispies Treats for Valentine’s Day. A super fun project to make with your kids! Great for school holiday parties too.

12-14 hearts

3 tbsp butter
10 ounces mini marshmallows
5 cups Rice Krispies
1 1/2 ounces Cherry Jello
candy hearts

Place two large sheets of parchment on a work surface. Spray each with baking spray.
Melt the butter over low heat in a saucepan. Add the marshmallows and Jello and stir with a spatula until creamy. Be sure to incorporate the Jello well. Turn off the heat, slowly fold in the rice krispies, one cup at a time.
Remove the mixture from the pan and place onto the center of one of the sheets of sprayed parchment. Place the second sheet on top. Pound with your palms until the mixture flattens out a bit. Next, using a rolling pin, roll out the rice krispie treats until you have a sheet that’s 1/4 inch thick.
While the treats are still warm & soft, remove the top sheet and cut out hearts with a 3 inch heart-shaped cookie cutter. Each time you cut a heart, gently press in some candy hearts. Serve immediately, will be tasty stored for a few days.
See notes for what to make with the scraps.

You will need a heart shaped cookie cutter for this recipe. Eat the scraps or roll it into pink rice krispies treats balls!
