Saw it, Pinned it, Did it: Valentine's Treats

Hello friends! Now that it's February, aka the month of love, I've been craving some yummy Valentine's day treats! So I'm linking up with Katie and Stephanie for Saw it, Pinned it, Did it!

Here is the original pin.

 photo DSC_0174.jpg You'll need rice krispies, marshmallows, white chocolate chips, butter, food coloring, and cute cookie cutters. My cookie cutters are from Crate and Barrel.

First, mix your ingredients. The directions are on the box of rice krispies. Tip #1: spray everything with cooking spray first. That means you'll need to spray your pan, both bowls, spoon, and your hand. Trust me, this makes everything SO much easier!

Tip #2: the key to gooey and perfect rice krispie treats is use slightly less rice krispies than the recipe calls for. Just under-measure a little bit.
After your rice krispies have set (an hour or so) bust out your cookie cutters!

I did hearts, xoxo, and some i heart u's. Adorable.

Then, melt your chocolate chips and dunk half of your treat in it.

I did half of the treats in white and the other half in pink. Then let them dry on some wax paper.

I added some sprinkles to the white ones. These were SO yummy! As soon as my husband came home from work he was sad I was photographing them and he couldn't eat them right away! (don't worry, I let him have some!)

These make a great gift and are so easy. Hudson's daycare teachers are in for a special treat!

YUM. So, two things: one, I have such a happy memory of dipping strawberries into melted chocolate with you and your mom at your house in high school - I even remember your gingham tablecloth (and learning the word gingham because of it:)) Two: that expression on Hudson's face reminds me so much of your sweet mama!

Nicole said...

I'm glad to see these turn out. I have a similar pin and was hesitant to try. Your recipe turned out so pretty! Just the encouragement I needed.
