Munchie had a Valentine’s playdate this week and we made a couple treats to tote along with us.
I didn’t have a ton of time to dedicate to elaborate and fancy schmancy treats. These fit the bill perfectly.
Though not really recipes, I thought I’d share how to make these since you might be in the market for an easy Valentine treat. Enjoy!
♥ For the Rice Krispie Hearts: Prepare Rice Krispies according to cereal box or marshmallow bag directions. Using a buttered or greased rubber spatula, spread and press down in a lightly greased large sheet pan/cookie sheet. Let sit for an hour or so to harden a bit. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out treats. Melt about a cup of white chocolate chips (I simply melted them in the microwave oven). Stir until smooth. Spread a bit on one side of each heart and add a few cute Valentine-themed sprinkles.
♥ For the Pink Frosted Heart Cupcakes: Bake up a batch of your favorite cupcakes. Let cool completely. Using a knife (I just used a sharp Henckels steak knife) cut off the top of the cupcakes (not too thick, but not too thin or it’ll fall apart). Using a small heart cookie cutter, cut out hearts from the top of each cupcake top. Spread pink frosting (I use store-bought frosting when I’m short on time and add 2 drops of red food coloring to it) on each cupcake and place the cupcake top back on. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
