Valentine's Day decorations do not have to be serious and complicated; they can be whimsical and crispy instead. One great idea is making heart shaped Rice Krispie treats accented with white chocolate and pretty sprinkles. Even kids can make these cheerful decorations to top cupcakes and a festive cake. You do not necessarily have to use white chocolate for these design elements, dark chocolate or tinted candy melts would work just as well depending on the look you want to achieve.On top of a recipe of Rice Krispie squares you will need white chocolate, heart cookie cutters and sprinkles.

A standard Rice Krispie treat recipe is as follows:

Ingredient

  • 4 Tbsps. unsalted butter
  • 1 package miniature marshmallows
  • 8 cups Rice Krispies® cereal
  • 2 tsps. pure vanilla extract

Preparation

  1. In large heavy saucepan over low heat melt the butter. Add the vanilla and stir.< /li>
  2. Add the mini marshmallows and stir until smooth and melted
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the Rice Krispies cereal until well coated
