Chocolate & Sprinkle Topped Rice Krispie Treats

Rice Krispie treats have always had a special place in my heart. πŸ’•Bruce always made the most amazing Rice Krispie treats for me when we first got married. I would ask him what his secret was. β€œExtra butter and extra marshmallows” was always his answer.

Well, we know that I am a bit EXTRA myself. And, I love sprinkles. I also love milk chocolate. So, I asked Bruce to make up a big ol’ batch of Rice Krispie treats so that I could make these extra special Valentine Day hearts. I watched carefully so that I could give you the exact measurements.

If you are not as extra as I am, you can just put the treats into a really big pan, and slice them up plain. That is how Bruce likes them. This batch uses up a full large box of Rice Krispies, and 2 bags of mini marshmallows.

Yep, no stuck together stale old half bags of marshmallows taking up space in your pantry!
