I love making Valentine’s Day treats with my kids – these Chocolate Dipped Rice Treat Hearts are a perfect way to celebrate! It’s a delicious chocolatey take on an old favorite – here’s how to do it!
  • 5 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 10 cups miniature marshmallows, divided
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • Ghiradellhi chocolate melting wafers
  • Red Chocolate melting wafers

  • Line a 9×13-inch cookie pan with parchment paper, then coat with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large saucepan melt the butter and miniature marshmallows over low heat until the marshmallows are just melted.
  • Add in the salt and vanilla stir to combine.
  • Remove the pan from the heat, add the Rice Krispies and mix until it is completely and evenly coated with the marshmallow mixture.
  • Turn the mixture out into the prepared pan and, using a wooden spoon or spatula that has been coated in non-stick cooking spray, press the mixture firmly into a packed, even layer.
  • Allow to set at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  • Now use a heart cookie cutter and press it into the bars then remove slowly. Set to the side.
