How to make Be My Valentine Rice Krispie Bites
You will need:
- Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Cereal
- Butter (We use Salted, Sweet Cream Butter)
- Mini Marshmallows
- Wilton Color Right Food Coloring System – Pink
- Wilton Color Right Food Coloring System – Crimson
- Wilton Color Right Food Coloring System – Brown
- Wilton Color Right Food Coloring System – Red
The Be My Valentine Rice Krispie Bites are Red, White and Pink so you will need to make three batches of Rice Krispie Treat mixture.
The base for our Be My Valentine Rice Krispie Bites is our Best Ever Rice Krispie Treat Recipe which we have adjusted and perfected over the years until it is now absolutely the best Rice Krispie Treat recipe we have ever tasted. You can find all the directions you’ll need to make these delicious treats right here.
First, make a 3 Cup batch of Rice Krispie Treat mixture (3 Tbsp. Butter/3 Cups Mini Marshmallows/3 Cups Cereal). Add the food coloring BEFORE you add the Rice Krispie Cereal. To create this shade of Pink we used our 8 drops of Pink Wilton Color Right Food coloring. Allow the Pink Rice Krispie Treat mixture to cool enough so you can handle it but that it is still malleable. To get Rice Krispie Bites that were the same sized I measured .5 oz. of the mixture on my food scale and then used by hands to roll it into a ball. If the mixture is too sticky, rub your fingers with some butter. I was able to make 18 Rice Krispie Treat Bites from this 3 cup batch of Rice Krispie Treat Mixture.
For the red Rice Krispie Treat Bites, follow the directions as listed above. We got this pretty color of red by using the following amounts of Wilton Color Right Food Coloring;
8 Drops of Crimson
1 Drop of Red
1/2 Drop of Brown
For the white Rice Krispie Treat Bites, follow the directions as outline above but don’t add any food coloring to the marshmallow mixture.
Allow the Be My Valentine Rice Krispie Bites to cool before you store them. This is a great Valentine’s Day treat and you can make it well ahead. Rice Krispie Treats freeze up great in an air-tight container.
Be My Valentine Rice Krispie Treat Bites are so fun and colorful and delicious – we guarantee that your family will love them!
