Valentine Rice Krispies Treats
To get the heart shape, I tried two different ways. The first time I put the rice krispies in a cookie sheet like usual, let them cool and then used my heart cookie cutter to cut them out. While this worked great, I felt that I had waste. Of course the kids were following in behind me munching on what was left after the shapes had been cut out.
Once I got the second batch mixed, I sprayed my heart cutter with non-stick spray and then pressed the treats into the cutter. Once I got it to the thickness I wanted, I then pushed them out of the heart cutter. This method took longer than the first way, but the treats looked better and I had no waste at all.
- 3 Tablespoons of butter
- 10 oz. package of mini marshmallows
- 6 cups Rice Krispies
- Food coloring (optional)
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
- 2 teaspoons milk
- 2 teaspoons light corn syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- assorted food coloring
- In a large pot, melt the butter over low heat. Once butter has melted, add the mini marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows have melted.
- Stir in food coloring (if desired)
- Remove from heat, and add Rice Krispies. Stir until coated.
- Press mixture evenly into 15x10 pan, or into heart shape cutter.
- In a small bowl, stir together confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth. Beat in corn syrup and almond extract until icing is smooth and glossy. If icing is too thick, add additional corn syrup.
- Divide into separate bowls if using different food coloring. Use spoon or piping bag to drizzle over treats.
