Please note, you can make these heart rice krispie treats with your hands, but I would suggest picking up a simple heart mold to make the decorating a bit easier. Here are a few options to consider.

Also you could also always consider using Strawberry Rice Krispies on these Valentine’s Day treats! Think about it! You will start off with a wonderful pink color right out of the box!

You might not even decide to use any coloring – that would be up to you. I like to give it a bit of an extra boost just for fun. But in a time pinch, I always grab the Strawberry Rice Krispies and be on my way.

No one will care at the end of the day how RED or PINK your Valentine’s Day Rice Krispie Treats are! They are more interested in the flavor, the shape, and how gooey they are.
