Earlier this week, I was searching the interwebz trying to find a great recipe for Valentine’s Day. I wanted something sweet (of course), colorful (preferably pink), & fun, yet simple. I can’t remember exactly how I found them, but when I saw Love from the Oven’s Chocolate Covered Rice Krispy Treats, I knew I found my winner!
Love from the Oven used pre-made Rice Krispy treats, but I made mine own since I had the ingredients already. The choice is yours.

-1 bag White Chocolate Chips
First I melted my white chocolate in a double boiler:
Once its melted, add food coloring (I found 4 drops of red did the trick):
Set up your assembly line:
Dip the top into the white chocolate:
I had to use a spatula on a few to smooth out the chocolate.
Dunk into sprinkles:
I really wish I hadn’t waited until the last minute to go on a sprinkle hunt. I searched Publix, Target & Michaels yesterday for some cute Valentine’s-themed sprinkles with no luck. Thankfully, I already had red in my pantry (thanks, Christmas!) & some cute Easter pastels from last year. Whatever works, right?
Set out to dry:
This recipe was so easy & cute. I wish I would’ve invited my 5 year-old niece over to do it with me. I think I may make these again for Easter & have her come help me. I think she’d get a kick out of it.
