Heart Shaped Rice Krispies-Idea for Valentine’s Day

Posted on: February 6, 2010

Sadly I don’t have a picture but I wanted to get this posted in case anyone wants to do this for their honey on Valentine’s day.  These are simple rice Krispies.  But you use a cookie cutter to cut them into hearts and then dip them in chocolate. If you don’t like chocolate go ahead and omit the chocolate.

8 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1 bag mini marshmellows
7 cups rice krispies
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

wax paper

Grease your 9 x 13 pan VERY WELL! We don’t want these sticking to the edges.  In a large sauce pan-over low heat melt the butter, when the butter is melted stir in the salt and marshmallows. When the marshmallows are melted stir in the rice krispies.  Make sure that the krispies are completely coated in the butter/marshmallow mixture and the spoon them into your pan.  Place the pan in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.  You want them to cool enough so that you can handle them with your hands and they begin to harden a bit.  Using a heart cookie cutter cut as many heart as you can while the krispies are still in the pan.  As you cut each heart remove it from the pan and set aside.  You can reuse the rice krispie excess just as you would if you were cutting sugar cookies.  Try to get as many hearts as you can.  When that is done in a large saucepan boil about a quart of water.  You want to get the water at a rolling boil.  Using a heat resistant bowl(I like to use my glass Pyrex bowls)  you are going to place the bowl above the pan with the boiling water.  The bowl you are using must completely cover the top of your saucepan.  Add the chocolate chips to the glass bowl and stir consistently.  They should be thoroughly melted in 5-7 minutes.  Once you have liquid chocolate very carefully remove the bowl from the saucepan.  Dip your heart rice krispies into the chocolate and coat as much as you would like.  I usually coat half with chocolate.  Then place on wax paper and allow to dry.  ENJOY!
