Every once in a while I need a treat. A Rice Krispie treat that is. They’re so unique and light and sweet. A perfect vacation from normal cookies. For Valentine’s day I decided to make them in muffin tins so they were perfectly sized, and festive with Valentine’s day muffin cups. I also threw in some pink sprinkles right before I portioned them out (not too early so the sprinkles didn’t bleed).
It’s the typical recipe:
- 1/2 stick of butter
- 1 bag of marshmallows
- 6 cups of Rice Krispies
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- Heat up a pot on the stove, and melt the butter.
- Add in the marshmallows and the vanilla and stir until all of the marshmallows are melted. (sometimes I’ll add a few spoonfuls of peanut butter)
- Turn heat to low and add the Rice Krispies a couple cups at a time. And add sprinkles if desired.
- Stir until well mixed and portion into muffin cups or a brownie pan. Allow to cool completely before removing from cups or pan.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
