Ingredients:

Yields: Approx. 6 Valentine’s Day Rice Krispies treats – depending on the size of your silicone mold.

Step 1:

Begin by spraying your silicone mold with cooking spray and set it aside. Next, line a baking sheet with wax paper and set it aside as well.

In a medium-sized saucepan, melt 2 tbsp butter over medium heat. Add 2 cups miniature marshmallows and allow to melt.

Once melted, add red gel food coloring and remove from heat. Mix until marshmallow mixture is well tinted, and then add 3 cups rice cereal and fold. Press the pink rice cereal treats into each heart-shaped section of your silicone mold.

In a smaller saucepan, melt the remaining butter and add the remaining marshmallows (you should have 1 cup left). Allow to melt and add violet food coloring and mix. Remove from heat.

Fold in the remaining 2 cups of rice cereal and flatten it onto your lined baking sheet.
