Let’s get to the recipe!


♥ Salted Butter

♥ Vanilla Extract

♥ Mini Marshmallows

♥ Rice Krispies cereal

♥ Valentine M&M’s

♥ Valentine Sprinkles


♥ Melt the butter in a large saucepan.

♥ Then stir in the vanilla extract and salt.

♥ Add the mini marshmallows, and stir ’til they melt into a smooth, creamy mixture.

♥ Next begin to stir in the Rice Krispies cereal, partially stirring them into your marshmallows.

♥ Now you’ll stir in the M&M’s candies, and finish mixing everything together.

♥ Wet your hands with water; then spread the Rice Krispies mixture into a greased 9×13 baking pan.

♥ Be sure to add the sprinkles right away, so they’ll stick to the warm marshmallow treats. If you wait too long, the sprinkles will just fall right off.

♥ Once you’ve spread your Rice Krispies treats mixture in your pan, you can go ahead and start cutting out heart shapes with a heart shaped cookie cutter.


Enjoy and Happy Valentine’s Day!
