Last year for our annual Valentines Day party, my daughter and I made these Valentine Peanut Butter Butterscotch Rice Krispies Treats. This was a perfect activity for a preschooler! Older kids will enjoy it too.
We made them from a Cooks.com recipe (although sometimes the recipe is on the Rice Krispies cereal box). After patting the mixture in a 10 Inch x 15 Inch Cookie Sheet or Jelly Roll Pan we let it cool in the refrigerator. Then we added Valentines M&M’s and cut them out with a large heart-shaped cookie cutter. An easy, eye-pleasing treat for a party!
You will need:
- Rice Krispies
- Peanut Butter
- Butterscotch Morsels
- Valentines M&M’s
- 10 Inch x 15 Inch Cookie Sheet or Jelly Roll Pan (with sides)
- Cookie Cutter
Just follow the easy recipe, and press the mixture in the pan with a spatula or wax paper.
Kids will enjoy pressing the M&M’s into the Rice Krispies mixture! Add the M&Ms right after pressing the mixture into the pan, then put the pan in the fridge to cool.
Cut out the shapes after the mixture has cooled and set completely. Bonus: you get to eat the scraps immediately, no waiting for the party!
Serve on a fancy plate for your party. I hope you and your kids enjoy making and eating these!
