Being snowed in for 3 days, you’d think I would have had time to prepare a week’s worth of meals wouldn’t you? Instead all I made were these deliciously cute little rice krispie treats. I figured one more treat for Valentine’s day couldn’t hurt.
These treats are quick and easy. I was done with the whole process, including cutting into heart shapes in about 30 minutes!
1 stick or 1/2 cup Earth Balance
1 bag of vegan marshmallows (I used Dandies)
6 cups of rice cereal (I used rice krispies)
In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter.
Add the marshmallows and stir around until they are completely melted. This takes about 10 minutes.
Next add the rice krispies. Continue to stir until everything is mixed thoroughly. Line a 9×13 inch pan with parchment paper and spread the rice krispies out using your spoon to flatten and spread them. Let the mixture set for about 5 minutes.
Pick up one side of the parchment paper and slide the rice krispies out onto a flat surface. Using your heart cookie cutter press down and cut out your shapes. Enjoy!
