Chocolate Crispy Heart Treats are the perfect kid-friendly Valentines Day treat!
When I was younger, we made crispy rice treats a lot. They really are a very simple yet delicious treat! I must admit though I always have a tough time getting mine to turn out. I do not know if I use too many marshmallows or if I use too much butter. Or it honestly may be crispy rice treats may always just be one of those things I can’t make?
Recently when I was at Walmart, I came across a sheet of crispy rice treats! I could not believe it! Now I can finally make the treats without having to MAKE them! LOL! That is a win in my book! I can LOOK like I made them when I did not! I know I know. I will gladly use all the help I can get when I am baking!
To make these Chocolate Crispy Heart Treats for Valentines Day, you will need to pick up one of these premade crispy rice sheets, pink chocolate wafers, pearlized sugar crystals, and silver sprinkles.
Here is how to make these kid-friendly Chocolate Crispy Heart Treats:
Crispy rice treat sheet
Heart cookie cutter (do not use plastic)
6 oz Pink chocolate wafers
Pearlized sugar crystals
Microwave safe bowl
Spray the heart cookie cutter with cooking spray. Press the cookie cutter into the crispy rice treat sheet. Just an FYI, this will be harder then you first think. Due to the firmness of the sheet of crispy rice treats, you will really have to put some muscle into it.
After you have all of the hearts cut out (the number of hearts will depend on what size of cookie cutter you use). Pour 6 oz of the chocolate wafers into a microwave safe bowl and melt them according to the manufacturers directions.
When the chocolate has reached the desired consistency, place the bowl on a cookie sheet and dip one side of each heart into the chocolate.
Then place each heart on the silicone mat. Before the chocolate hardens, sprinkle on the sugar crystals and the sprinkles. Let the chocolate sit and harden for about 1 – 2 hours. To speed things up you can also place the cookie sheet with the decorated hearts in the refrigerator until the chocolate sets.
