Valentine’s Day is less than a week away. I’m sitting here, trying to figure out what I want to make and bake over the next week. I also need to figure out what I need to purchase for teacher gifts. The one thing I already have done is the kids’ Valentine’s cards. AG just has to write her name on hers, which we’ve already started working on. She’s not a fan of working at home, so I figured doing a few at night for a few days is going to be our best bet.
Today, I’m sharing a fun and easy little treat idea. We did it last year for our neighbors and for friends at a playdate. This year, I think we’re going to go the salty and sweet route with a few different pretzel chocolate treats. Recipe will come if they work out!
Getting back to the heart pops…
They’re basically rice krispie treats using strawberry marshmallows. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it!?!
I always find the strawberry marshmallows at Target. I’ve never had luck at our local grocery store. Prepare rice krispie treats as the directions state on the box of cereal. Basically it’s the krispies, melted butter and marshmallows.
Using a heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out hearts. Make sure and use all the outside scraps too!
Once they’re cut out, lay them on a cooling rack or cookie sheet, you could even use parchment paper.
This is where you can have fun with them! I used some vanilla almond bark to decorate ours. I melted it and dipped some of the hearts. I drizzled others and made pops using little sticks on others.
AG did all of the sprinkle work and was pretty proud of her creations. Rightfully so.
After packaging the majority up and making deliveries, we enjoyed all of the leftovers ourselves. Enjoying the treats was my favorite part of our baking afternoon.
Rice krispy treats are some of my favorites.
