Valentine’s Day is this week can you believe it!? My daughters class is having a Valentine’s Day party in class this week and we wanted to make Valentine treats that are easy, festive, and of course, tasty! These Rice Krispie Valentine’s Hearts are oh-so-cute and fun to make! You can customize them in so many different ways.

What I love most about recipes like these is that you can make them with your kids. Getting your kids in the kitchen with you is great for bonding and can also teach lessons in math (measuring) English (reading), and following directions! So grab your ingredients, your kids, and have some fun in the kitchen!
