Valentine Rice Krispie Treats

I'm the Room Parent for my 4 year-old's preschool class so I was responsible for bringing juice boxes and a Valentine treat for their class party. After thinking about it for awhile, I decided to make Rice Krispie treats. What kid doesn't like Rice Krispie treats?!?! I added a little red food coloring and some Valentine sprinkles and Voila we had Valentine Rice Krispies!


Valentine Rice Krispie Treats

3 T. butter or margarine
1 pkg. (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
- OR -
4 c. miniature marshmallows
6 c. Rice Krispies®

In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

Add Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.

Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.
