Rice Krispie Lollipop Hearts

For the past few weeks my Instagram feed has been inundated with hearts, hearts, and more hearts. Which can only mean one thing: Valentine’s Day must be right around the corner.  I ultimately caved, reluctantly happily stopped scoffing, and decided to jump on the Valentine bandwagon last minute. And what speaks to my heart more than cute, little heart-shaped sweets? These Rice Krispie lollipop hearts are the perfect last minute treat that’s fun, easy to make, and oh-so-adorable. Whether for that special someone or your best girlfriends, these tasty little treats will show anyone just how much you care.

Rice Krispie Lollipop Hearts (makes around 15):

Adapted from this recipe here.

  • 45 large marshmallows
  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 6 cups Rice Krispie cereal
  • 1 tsp red food colouring
  • 2 cups candy melts (vanilla flavoured or white chocolate)
  • 1 cup heart sprinkles
  • lollipop sticks
  • heart-shaped cookie cutter

  1. Place butter and marshmallows in a very large bowl and heat on high in the microwave for 2 minutes. Remove, stir, and heat for another 2 minutes.
  2. Remove from microwave and stir well with a spatula until marshmallows and butter are fully combined.
  3. Add food coloring to the mixture and mix well. Stir in Rice Krispies and quickly mix until fully combined.
  4. On a baking sheet lined with wax paper, spread the Rice Krispie mixture on, about 9x13x½ inch thick. Let cool slightly, then cut out heart shapes with a cookie cutter and set aside.
  5. Place the sprinkles in a wide flat bowl and set aside.
  6. Place the candy melts in a bowl and heat in the microwave for 1 minute at 50% power or defrost setting. Remove, stir, then place back in microwave and heat for another minute at 50% power or defrost setting. Stir well until completely melted.
  7. Dunk the Rice Krispie hearts in the melted candy melts, coating a thin layer on both sides. Use a knife to spread the coating evenly.
  8. Coat the hearts generously with the sprinkles on both sides.
  9. Insert lollipop sticks in the bottom of each heart.

Happy Valentine’s Day! <3
