Raspberry Rice Krispie Treats!

        I made these for my cubbies :) they are very very verrrrry sweet (both cubbies and rice krispies:P).  All the leaders enjoyed eating the chocolate on the top and not the actual rice krispie haha.  Since they are raspberry it is suggested to cut them into heart shapes and add a little red food coloring for valentine's day, but I just made them in a big pan.

Raspberry Rice Krispies

1/4 cup Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks (or you could just use butter)
10.5 ounces mini marshmallows
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
6 cups gluten-free Rice Krispies (be careful because regular rice krispies are NOT gluten-free but they made new ones that are)
2 cups chocolate chips, melted (I used dark chocolate mm!)

So I made these twice, the first time I used the stove and the second time I used the microwave, both ways worked out fine. 
~Stovetop: Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat.  Add marshmallows and salt; cook and stir until melted and smooth.  Stir in raspberry jam (mine didn't like separate completely, I tried my best then got frustrated and said it was good enough).  If you want it redder/pinker add food coloring, then cereal! Spread into buttered 13X9-inch pan, put into fridge and let cool completely.  Once completely cool, spread melted chocolate over top (or cut into hearts first). 
~Microwave: Pretty much the same except put butter, marshmallows, and salt into a large microwaveable bowl and heat for 3 minutes, stir, reheat til melted and smooth.  Then just follow the above directions starting with stirring in raspberry jam. :) ENJOY!
