What's Cooking...Valentine's Day Treats

In an effort to make Valentine's Day special for Sawyer we headed into the kitchen on Monday and created these delicious almond bark and sprinkles covered Rice Krispie Treats!  They are wonderfully festive and a complete synch to make!

Rice Krispy Treats with Almond Bark and Sprinkles

4 tablespoons of butter
6 cups of Rice Krispies
1 bag of mini marshmallows
1 bag of almond bark in whatever color you like (I used hot pink)
1 container of festive sprinkles (I used hearts in a variety of colors)

Melt the butter over medium heat then add marshmallows.  Keep on heat and stir until the two are combined and melted.

Add rice krispies and combine.  Place on a pan coated in cooking spray.  Spread out onto tray as best as you can.  Wet fingers slightly and press lightly to finish spreading the treats out.  Let cool completely and then dip in to almond bark which has been melted in microwave.  Cut squares out of cooled tray of treats, dip one side into the melted almond bark, place on parchment paper, and coat heavily with sprinkles.

Let cool for about 30 minutes and then dive in!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
