Dairy Free Rice Krispie Treats and dairy and peanut/tree nut free chocolate are two of my boys’ favourites. Therefore, it made sense to me to incorporate the two into something special for Valentine’s Day.
Happy Valentine’s Day Boys!
A fun treat to create as an activity together in the kitchen or to make as a surprise!
I can tell you…when I first made these…my boys were definitely surprised!
“Wow! Is that chocolate on top?” Quickly followed up by Michael with…”What did you do with the extra bits left over?”
“Rolled them into balls and dipped them in melted chocolate…what else!”, I replied.
You should have seen Michael’s eyes widen in excitement!
Dairy Free Rice Krispie Hearts
Make a batch of Dairy Free Rice Krispie Treats.
Let them set for about 5-10 minutes.
Using a heart cookie cutter, cut out your hearts in the Rice Krispie Treats.
Place hearts on a large cooling rack.
Meanwhile, heat a small amount of water in a saucepan and let simmer.
Place a heat proof bowl on top of simmering water and add Enjoy Life chocolate chips. (use a double boiler if you have one)
Stir chocolate chips until they are melted.
Using a pastry brush or small spatula, drizzle melted chocolate across the Dairy Free Rice Krispie Hearts.
Dairy Free Rice Krispie Chocolate Balls
Roll leftover Dairy Free Rice Krispie Heart bits into small balls.
Place a Gimbal’s Cherry Lovers candy on top to finish it off.
Package up your treats in a pretty bag!
In a valentine shaped tin surrounded by Gimbal’s Cherry Lovers candy.
Above all…have fun and enjoy!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
