Using popcorn instead of Rice Krispies in these hearts is so fun! They were such a light treat that we couldn’t stop eating them.

To make these marshmallow popcorn treats perfect for Valentine’s Day, I shaped them into hearts. I have tried to cut Rice Krispie treats with cookie cutters before and learned it doesn’t work. The marshmallow is too sticky and the cereal just crumbles.

So I tried something new to make my marshmallow popcorn treats into hearts, after you mix the melted marshmallow into the popcorn, press it into greased cookie cutters to shape. It is important to grease the cookie cutters and your hands well so you don’t get all gooey. 

But after you press one heart you can remove the cookie cutter and do the next one. Easy peasy and my hearts look perfect.

Use cookie cutters to make heart treats for Valentine's Day.

After letting the hearts cool, I dipped the hearts in melted chocolate or drizzled them with melted chocolate then added a bit of sprinkles for Valentine’s Day. Now we are ready to enjoy our new popcorn treats or give them to our Valentine.

They are perfect. My kids (and me) can’t get enough!
