Rice Krispie Heart Recipe

Rice Krispie Hearts

While searching Valentine’s Day recipes on Pinterest, I was inspired by Lifestyle by Leah’s Rice Krispie Valentine Hearts and wanted to re-create a simpler version of the recipe. Instead of using candy melts, I used traditional cake icing to decorate and trace the shape of the hearts. They were easy to make and provided a lot of fun for my family and me.

Things Needed

  • 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 1 package of JET-PUFFED Marshmallows
  • 6 cups of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal 
  • 1 tube of Cake Mate pink icing
  • 20 candy pearls

  3. Using a buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into a 13×9 2-inch pan coated with butter.
  4. Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut the Rice Krispies out.
  5. Decorate with pink icing and candy pearls. 
  6. Let the Rice Krispie hearts slightly harden and enjoy!
