Let the Rice Krispies hearts set while you melt the candy melts according to package instructions.

Cutting out heart shapes from the Rice Krispies Treats

Using a lollipop stick, you can skewer each heart to make for easy dipping, or use a spoon or spatula to drizzle the pink frosting over each heart.

Get creative – maybe half dip some hearts, drizzle others and completely cover a few! 

Add Valentine’s sprinkles for the final touch.

While these treats taste best immediately, they will also keep nicely in an air tight container at room temperature for a few days. You may want to separate each heart with parchment paper to prevent sticking.
