I Heart Rice Krispy Treats

Even though it feels like we just rang in the New Year, a trip to my favorite craft store quickly reminded me that Valentine's Day is almost here! Everyone who follows the blog knows that I don't bake, but I've been perfecting my culinary skills in the art of rice krispy treat making for years. So here is my latest creation in honor of Valentine's Day.

I started by pulling out a couple of heart-shaped cookie cutters - a big one and a little one.


I made the rice krispy treats using this basic recipe (sorry no pics, I got lazy). I then divided the mix in half and added red food coloring to one half. Once the treats had cooled, I cut out a heart using the big cutter. I then used the little cutter to cut out another heart in the middle of the big heart. Finally I switched the little hearts out - here's the result...


I know I've said it before, but this might be the easiest thing I've ever made!


More Valentine's Day crafts on the way soon...

Great idea! My biggest problem with Rice Crispy treats is my kids eat the box of cereal before I get to making the treats.
