Heart-shaped Rice Krispie Treats
›› 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
›› 3 tablespoons butter
›› 4 cups mini marshmallows
›› 1 pkg of white chocolate wafers
›› pink food coloring (optional)
›› Melt butter in a large sauce pan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted, then remove from heat.
›› Fold Rice Krispies into the marshmallow mixture until everything is fully coated, then press the mixture into a 13” pan coated with cooking spray and let cool (using wax paper is recommended to press so it doesn’t stick to your hands!)
›› Use a heart-shapped cookie cutter to cut the treats, then set aside.
›› Using a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate wafers in the microwave by heating/stirring in 30-second intervals. Once melted, stir in food coloring. Dip the hearts in the chocolate mixture, then set on wax paper to set (around 10 min).
