I am a huge fan of marshmallows, so I decided to teach others how to make Rice Krispie treats. They are easy enough to make and I knew others would be excited to try a new recipe. I wanted our recipe to be a something that felt crafty, too, so I decided to make these Rice Krispie treats festive by cutting them into heart shapes, dipping them in melted pink chocolate and sprinkling them with hearts. We even decided to use red and white colored straws as our lollipop sticks and I think they came out so cute.
regular sized marshmallows (10 ounces)
crisp rice cereal
pink candy melts (you can buy these at craft stores)
sticks or lollipop sticks, cut in half
In large saucepan melt the butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from the heat.
Add the cereal. Stir until well coated.
Using a buttered spatula or wax paper, evenly press the mixture into 9-inch x 13-inch x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Using a 2-inch heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out hearts.
Melt the candy melts using a double boiler. Remove from the heat. Using a small offset spatula, coat half of
each heart with melted candy and sprinkle with sprinkles. Place onto a wire rack until the candy coating hardens.
Gently skewer each heart with a straw or lollipop stick.
Wrap each pop in a small cellophane bag and tie with a ribbon and you have yourself one adorable, edible Valentine. They also make excellent bake sale items and will definitely sell like fast!
