It’s my take on traditional Rice Krispie Treats with a twist. I add red food coloring to the mix, cut them into heart shapes and dip them in melted chocolate and sprinkles.

  • Add 8 cups of miniature marshmallows and a few drops of red food coloring to achieve desired color.

  • Cool to room temperature.
  • Coat a heart shaped cookie cutter with nonstick cooking spray and cut into heart shapes.
