Hello Friends! I hope that you are enjoying the new year and taking time to do the things you love. In the spirit of time, I have chosen the word SIMPLIFY for the new year. This means I am truly simplifying things when possible. Today, it is all about a fun Valentines recipe idea.
One of my favorite things to make for a quick and easy dessert, is something made with cereal. I made these small batch Valentine’s rice Krispie treats as a perfect dessert for Valentine's Day. Like my Chex Valentine's mix, this is a festive Valentine's Day snack.
I knew right away what I wanted to make with these items. I mean, It doesn’t get much easier than a few simple ingredients to make these quick Valentine’s Treats.
It makes a perfect snack!

How To Make Valentine's Treats
- Making the treats are easy. All you do is melt the marshmallows and butter, add the cereal and then the chocolate candies.
- Then cut them into heart shapes.
- Decorate some with melted candy melts.
- They also look really cute in a treat bag as a fun Valentines Treat for friends. But be sure to let then set completely before putting in a bag.
