If you like the sayings on conversation heart candy, then you should make these big Valentine’s Day Rice Krispie Hearts!


  • 10 oz bag miniature marshmallows
  • 3 tablespoons softened butter
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 16 oz creamy vanilla frosting
  • Yellow, pink, and purple food coloring
  • 4 decorating bags or sandwich bags
  • Heart cookie cutter


  1. Grease a 9″ x 13″ baking pan with a non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large microwave-safe mixing bowl, combine your marshmallows and butter, heat for 60 seconds in the microwave, then mix well.
  3. Add your Rice Krispies cereal to your marshmallows and mix until the cereal is evenly coated
  4. Press your Rice Krispies into your baking pan (I used a potato masher and it worked great!).
  5. Freeze for 15 minutes.
  6. While freezing, separate your frosting into four bowls. Leave one bowl plain, in the second bowl mix in a small drop of yellow food coloring, in the third bowl add pink coloring, and in the fourth bowl add purple food coloring. In the end you will have 4 different colored icings. Scoop each one into a different decorating bag. If you don’t have decorating bags, put them in a sandwich bag.
  7. Use your heart cookie cutter to cut out your hearts.
  8. Cut a small tip off each decorating bag (or a bottom corner off each sandwich bag), and using one color at a time, draw a heart outline onto your Rice Krispies. Fill in each heart, then spread the icing evenly over the surface of the hearts with a knife.
  9. Using your white bag, write little sayings onto each heart like TXT ME, LUV, CALL ME, etc. just like conversation hearts!
