Sweet Heart Krispie Treats

 Jai had a blast making these treats, cereal was everywhere however... the yarn is for the cellophane bags stay tuned for the crafts and other projects she and I did together. to see the easy steps for this project click here
  • Cooking spray
  • 3 tablespoons margarine
  • 6 cups mini (or 60 regular-size) marshmallows
  • Red food coloring
  • 9 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • Heart-shaped cookie cutter
  • Plastic bags, yarn
  1. To begin, lightly coat a 10- by 15-inch baking sheet with cooking spray and set it aside.
  2. Melt the margarine in a large pot over low heat. Add the marshmallows, stirring them continuously until they melt. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in drops of red food coloring until the color receives a thumbs-up from the chef.
  3. Add the Rice Krispies, stirring until they are evenly coated with marshmallow. Spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet.
  4. With waxed paper (or lightly buttered hands), smooth out the mixture, spreading it to an even thickness.
  5. Cut out hearts with the cookie cutter. Place each heart in a clear plastic bag, tie on a yarn bow, and they're ready for giving. Makes seven 5-inch hearts.
