Pink Heart Shaped Rice Krispy Treats

I am the room mom for Victoria's class and when it comes to parties I like to ask some of the kids what they want for snacks. One little boy wants me to make chocolate cupcakes all the time. This time when I asked Victoria said rice krispy treats and so did one other little guy. So her Valentines party is today and I made two trays of rice krispy treats at like 6:30 am!

I colored one pan with Wilton Rose and one with Wilton Pink. I also decided to cut them into hearts which wasn't easy with plastic cookie cutters. I did some small ones and some a little bit bigger. I also added some sprinkles to them. I think they came out cute and I really need to stop eating the scraps!

I took a picture of the first layer, I ended up by having two layers. I put parchment between them or I would have a sticky mess.

1/2 stick of butter
1 bag of mini marshmallows
5 cups Rice Krispie Cereal

Spray a 13x9 glass dish with cooking spray.

Put the butter in a large pan and melt on low. Add the marshmallows and melt. Make sure to keep stirring the mix until it is all melted. Do not let it get browned!

Remove from heat, then add in the cereal and stir until well mixed.

Spread the mixture into the prepared dish. Press it down with your hands. To keep your hands from sticking wet them a little with cold water.

Cut into squares when it is cooled.

This may sound silly but I've never made rice krispy treats before. I saw you added Wilton colors but I'm not sure when you added the color. At what point in the process did you add the color? Thanks!

I would add the color to the melted marshmallow before adding the cereal.
