Rice Krispie Cupcakes (Valentines Day)

Rice Krispie Cupcakes (Valentines Day) ~ Perfect little treats with surprise Jellies added, which add a burst of flavor to otherwise plain Krispie Treats ~ Valentines Day treat everyone will love !

These Rice Krispie Cupcakes are perfect for Valentines Day. Crunchy, gooey and chewy all in one, with a burst of flavor from the strawberry jellies.

I think these "cupcakes" would be perfect for the kids to take to school, not too lovey-dovey and overly screaming Valentines Day {hey, I'm thinking about the boys here !}, but enough of a Valentine sweet treat for the whole classroom to enjoy.

I remember Cheri used to take something to school, for whatever reason - Valentines Day, her birthday, school closing/opening and I am sure I am forgetting a lot of other days as well.

Pity I worked full-time when she was in primary school and all the way into taking treats to school for her friends. I used to just grab whatever was available for the occasion in the stores and that was what she took with. Never made anything homemade.

I also have to mention that I used to hate cooking and especially baking ! Still can not believe I am actually writing about food, sharing recipes .. but, well, so life changes us.

Now I know candies, like the above jellies, differ from country to country, but try to find something similar for this recipe - these are very soft in the center and just chewy enough to my liking.

I used silicone muffin cups as they bend easily and one of your hands stay sticky-free - most of the time, I have to add. I did not use any spray or anything - just pressed the mixture into the cups and flattened the tops.

You do not have to flatten the tops, especially if you substitute the whipped cream for maybe a drizzle of white chocolate ? Removing the cupcakes from the silicone cups are a breeze as they just slip right out and you can pop them into a pretty, clean paper cupcake liner.

Adding the Strawberry Jellies was an excellent idea. My family did not really know what to expect, only not to expect the usual Krispie treats !

Needless to say, all the Rice Krispie Cupcakes were gone in no time. I think Dimitri might have hidden one or two to take to work the next day though...
