Valentine’s Day Crisped Rice Treats

February 13, 2012 – 7:34 pm

These are classic crisped rice treats with a little holiday twist. I love vanilla, so I always add more than the official recipes call for. 🙂 I made a double batch and brought them into work to share with my coworkers.

Valentine’s Day Crisped Rice Treats
Serves 16

3 tbsp butter
1 10-oz package (4 cups) miniature marshmallows
2 tsp vanilla
6 cups crisped rice cereal
1 tbsp Valentine’s Day colored sprinkles, plus more for the top

Melt the butter and marshmallows together in an 8 cup microwave safe bowl (for my microwave, this is on high for 3 minutes, stirring once halfway through). Stir in the vanilla, then fold in the cereal. Add the sprinkles and continue to gently stir until the cereal is completely coated. Spread the mixture out into 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray or lined with parchment paper. Scatter sprinkles evenly over the top of the mixture while it is still warm, pressing the sprinkles in slightly.

Let the mixture cool completely and cut into squares.
