We love a Rice Krispie treat in the Drew household, and these pumpkin Rice Krispie treats have got us itching for Christmas themed ones. I love the chance to try out a new Rice Krispie treats recipe and this one did not disappoint. The festive greens and reds make me excited for Christmas, and I love that you can change the shape so easily. Definitely one to try.

heart shaped Rice Krispie Treats

This is a nice simple recipe that only takes around 7 minutes and can make about 12 heart shaped Rice Krispie treats, depending on how you cut them and to what size.

You will need

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups Miniature Marshmallows
  • 6 cups Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® holiday cereal – if you can’t get your hands on this then you can use normal Rice Krispies but you won’t get the colourful effect shown in the photos here with the green and red colours.
  • Heart shaped cookie cutter


Making these are so simple.

In large saucepan melt butter over low heat.

Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted.

Once melted, remove from the heat.

Add KELLOGG’S RICE KRISPIES holiday cereal and stir until well coated.

Using parchment paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan.

Cool it down. You can speed this up by popping it into the fridge.

Cut into hearts with heart cookie cutter.

Storing these heart shaped rice krispie treats

If you need to store these rice krispie treats because you have somehow not eaten them all at once (they are SO moreish!) then store them in an airtight container.

Adapting this Rice Krispie treats recipe

There are plenty of adaptions you can make to this Rice Krispie treats recipe.

You can change the cereal you use and use plain Rice Krispies.

You can also change the shape by using a different shaped cookie cutter – a gingerbread man would be very cute!
