RECIPE: VALENTINE RICE KRISPIE POPS

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 10-ounce bag mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies
  • Heart shaped cookie cutter
  • Optional decoration: candy melts, red or other
    colors, cinnamon candies or chocolate chips
  •  
    Plus

  • 9″ x 13″ baking pan
  • Red and white striped straws or lollipop sticks
  • Squeeze bottle(s) for candy melts
  •  

    Preparation

    1. MELT butter in a saucepan over low heat, then add in the marshmallows.

    2. SPRAY a rubber spatula with nonstick cooking spray (to avoid marshmallows sticking to the spatula), then stir the marshmallows until melted. Add Rice Krispies and stir until cereal is well coated in marshmallow.

    3. LIGHTLY SPRAY a 9″ x 13″ pan with nonstick spray, then turn the Rice Krispie mixture out into the pan. Press down with the palm of your hand to flatten the Rice Krispies evenly into the pan. Allow 15 minutes to cool.

    4. CUT into heart shapes, then gently insert a striped straw into the base of each shape.
     
    Decorating Options

    1. CANDY MELTS. Melt candy melts in the microwave and then transfer to squeeze bottles. Decorate the Rice Krispie heart with various colors and patterns.

    2. CINNAMON CANDIES or CHOCOLATE CHIPS. Sprinkle 1/4 cup cinnamon candies (like Red Hots) or mini chips atop the Rice Krispie mixture in the pan; then press down with palms to flatten.
