V-Day Treat

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:

Ingredients

  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 1 bag of marshmallows
  • 6 cups of Rice Krispies
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Method

  1. Heat up a pot on the stove, and melt the butter.
  2. 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)
  3. Turn heat to low and add the Rice Krispies a couple cups at a time.  And add sprinkles if desired.
  4. Stir until well mixed and portion into muffin cups or a brownie pan.  Allow to cool completely before removing from cups or pan.

In my world it’s finals week, so here’s what my valentines look like this year:

Happy Valentine’s Day!
