Rice Krispies + Chocolate = <3

So, why not create heart shaped, chocolate dipped rice krispie for the whole family to munch on? They’re easy to make, delicious to eat and really don’t have to be made in heart shapes, but any shape (and colours) you choose!

  • ¼ cup of butter or margarine
  • 250g pack of marshmallows or 5 cups of mini marshmallows
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • 6 cups of Rice Krispies (puffed rice) cereal
  • 200g white chocolate
  • Pink food colouring
  • 100g additional chocolate (we chose white, but normal chocolate is perfect!)
  • Hundreds and thousands sprinkles (optional)


  • Melt the butter in the microwave or in a large saucepan over low heat.
  • Add marshmallows and place back on the stove or in the microwave.
  • Stirring constantly until marshmallows have completed melted.
  • Add vanilla essence and stir well.
  • Pour in the Rice Krispies and mix mixture with a rubber spatula until all the cereal is coated in sticky marshmallow.
  • Choose one of the 2 options below:
    • Spoon mixture into a heart shaped cookie cutter, transfer onto a cookie sheet and release the heart shape from the cutter. Leave to set.
    • Spoon mixture into a well-greased baking tray and spread it out to about 2 cm thick. Use the cookie cutter to cut heart shapes out of the mixture and release on a cookie sheet. Leave to set.
  • After about an hour, it’s time to get your creative hat on and decorate!
  • Melt the 200g chocolate in a double boiler. If you chose to use white chocolate, you can stir in a few of drops of pink (or colour of your choice) food colouring.
  • Dip one half of the heart into the coloured chocolate
  • Allow the extra chocolate to drip off before placing the heart on the baking tray lined with wax paper.
  • Repeat dipping steps above until all hearts have been dipped. Set aside for an hour to dry.
  • Melt the 100g chocolate in a clean double boiler.
  • Drizzle the chocolate over the hearts as desired and leave to set.

Word of warning: These are moreish, so some self restraint may need to be in order to try not to eat it all in one go! Enjoy!
