Time to get your gooey mushes on! Start by prepping a 9×13 baking dish with parchment paper and some cooking spray. Then, pop it onto the stove at medium heat – melting some butter in the pot until you reach an oozy golden-ness. 

Gently stir in marshmallows and salt before adding vanilla extract too; then take off the heat for just long enough to fold through those crunchy rice cereal pieces. 

Transform ordinary rice cereal into something truly special by folding it together with luscious marshmallow cream! After pressing the delicious mixture evenly into a parchment-lined baking dish, let your creations cool – then watch as they turn into one-of-a-kind shapes when cookie cutters are pressed in. 

Let the fun begin and get creative decorating these tasty treats.

This Valentine's Day, try making these fun and easy Rice Krispie Treats decorated with sprinkles and colored chocolate chips

Ingredients

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 bags marshmallows
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 cups rice cereal such as Rice Krispy Treats
  • 10 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or vegetable oil (optional)
  • Holiday themed sprinkles

Instructions

  1. First, prepare a 9x13 baking dish. Cut a piece of parchment long enough to hang over the sides of the dish, then spray the inside with a light coating of cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large nonstick pan or pot, melt the butter over medium heat on the stove. 
  3. When the butter is melted, reduce the heat to low and add the marshmallows and salt. 
  4. Stir slowly until the marshmallows are completely melted into a thick, gooey sauce, then stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Remove the pot from the heat and pour in the rice cereal.
  6. Fold the rice cereal into the marshmallow cream until the mixture is completely coated and mixed throughout.
  7. Spoon the mixture into your prepared parchment-lined baking dish and use the back of a spatula (or the palms of your hands) to press the mixture into an even layer into the dish.
  8. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature, then press cookie cutters into the rice treats to cut out shapes. Set them aside on a piece of parchment until you’re ready to decorate them..

To Decorate The treats:

  1. In a large microwave safe bowl or tempered glass measuring cup, microwave the white chocolate intervals of 20 seconds until completely liquid and melted.
  2. Stir the coconut or vegetable oil into the melted chocolate to make it nice and smooth. 
  3. Dip one side of each rice treat into the white chocolate and let any excess drip back into the bowl. You may need to dip twice to get a good coating. 
  4. Immediately dip or spoon sprinkles over the white chocolate and place the treats decor-side up to rest and allow the white chocolate to harden and set. 

Notes

  • Pro tip: To make pressing the crispy rice treats into your baking dish, spray a silicone spatula or the back of a mixing spoon with cooking spray to keep the mixture from sticking. 
  • You can also spray your cookie cutters before pressing them into the rice treat slab. You may have to do it between each time if you find that the marshmallow is sticking to the cutter too much.
