Chocolate Heart Rice Krispie Valentines
one batch of Rice Krispie treats (recipe below)
one bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips or one bag of melting wafers
1 tablespoon vegetable shortening (optional)
sprinkles, or other decorations
plastic sandwich bags (fold over kind)
from the back of the box
3 Tablespoons butter or margarine
1 bag (10 oz) marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispie Cereal
Line a 10 by 15 baking sheet with wax paper. Spray the wax paper lightly with non-stick spray. Set aside. Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove pan from heat, and add the rice krispie cereal. Stir until well coated (work quickly!) and then dump mixture on lined baking sheet. Using buttered hands (or spray hands with non-stick spray) press mixture evenly on baking sheet. Set aside and let cool.
Once the treats are completely cool, remove entire sheet of wax paper to a cutting board or counter.
Wrap each heart shaped treat in a plastic bag and tie with a ribbon. I trimmed the excess plastic off once it was secured with the ribbon.
Don't those look pretty? They were pretty yummy too.
