Valentine’s Day Rice Krispies Treats
These Rice Krispies treats used ready-made Rice Krispies treats but you could make your own as well. Adding your own decorative straws really dresses up your dessert for any occasion.
These are fun to make because there is minimal work and effort on your part. It’s a great way to make a simple treat that everyone can easily grab and eat.
No matter if you’re looking for a quick treat or one that everyone in the family can join in on, this is a great dessert to do!
All you need is two microwave-safe bowls, a sandwich bag, and scissors along with the Rice Krispies and chocolate. And to be honest, you don’t even have to have the straws but eating foods off a stick is just too much fun to pass up!
This also means that you can keep the hands clean as they grab and walk around and snack! Get the kids to help out in the kitchen and they’re going to have a blast.
This is a fun way that they can build confidence and be a part of creating something yummy. Not only that but this will give them a launching point to possibly want to create even more treats.
You can switch out the colors of the candy melts to make it festive for any holiday, like orange and green for St. Patrick’s day or red and green for Christmas. We literally make these rice Krispie treats for all the holidays and never have any issues or problems doing so. The kids will love being able to have a treat that they can alter and change for all the various seasons of the year.
My kids would totally be happy if I just left them with only chocolate on them. Heck, they’d appreciate the Rice Krispies on their own. And it’s not a bad idea…sometimes we might just leave them without adding the chocolate on them but for these Valentine’s Day Rice Krispies Treats, we’re going to go all out and make them special!
