Sweets for Sharing the Love!

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."

1 Corinthians 13:8

Every time I read this verse I think of my family. I think of how blessed I am that they are happy and healthy, and that I get to spend so much time with them. This past week's snow days have given me even more time than usual with them, and for that I am truly grateful! We decided to get in the Valentine's Day spirit and share a little love with each other while making rice krispie treats. Some sliced fresh strawberries made an excellent topping, and added the perfect pink touch.

Share the Love Healthier Rice Krispie Treats! 


  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups Whole Grain Brown Rice Krispie Cereal (I actually found this at Target Kids had no clue!)
  • 1 Cup Fresh sliced strawberries (blend or chop finely)


In a large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add in marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add Brown Rice Krispie Cereal and stir until fully coated. Flatten the mixture on wax paper and use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out hearts or use your hands to shape the mixture into hearts. Top the hearts with fresh sliced strawberries and gently press down to seal them. (You could also mix the strawberries in with the marshmallows). Cool before serving.

This Valentine's Day take a moment to share the love in your life. Reach out to friends and family,and let them know what they mean to you.
