Valentine Rice Crispy Treats

Valentine Rice Crispy Treats

Seriously, I don’t know a single person who doesn’t like Rice Crispy Treats.  Make sure to use fresh marshmallows or one 7-ounce jar of marshmallow cream can be used instead.  I don’t recommend using diet or reduced calorie or margarine.  To freeze place layers separated by wax paper in an airtight container.  Freeze for up to 6 weeks.  Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving. 

INGREDIENTS

3 Tablespoons Butter

10 Ounces Marshmallows

6 Cups Rice Cereal

Frosting Or Decorating Gel (Optional)

Assorted Candies (Optional)

Line a 13 x 8 x 2-inch pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. Set aside. 

In large-size pan melt butter over a low heat.  Add marshmallows and constantly stir until completely melted.  Remove from heat.  Add cereal and stir until well coated. 

Using a buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into prepared pan.  Let cool. 

Remove from pan.  Remove foil.  Decorate with frosting, gel pen and/or candies. 

Cut into 2-inch squares or using a heart shaped cookie cutter cut into heart shapes. 

Best if served the same day.
