What you will need to make these Sweet Heart Krispie Treats...

300g marshmallows
50g butter
170g Rice Krispies
150g White Chocolate
Red food colouring
Heart shaped cookie cutter

Method

1. Place the butter in a large pan and cook over a low heat. Once the butter is melted, add mini marshmallows to the pan and stir until the marshmallows are melted. The add a couple of drops of red food colouring to the pan and stir to mix. 

2. Stir the Rice Krispies into the melted marshmallows, making sure to completely coat the cereal. Once the ingredients are fully mixed, press the cereal mixture into a 9×13 pan coated with non-stick cooking spray. It can get a little messy, so you can use a lightly buttered spoon to smooth over the top and compress the mixture.

3. While the mixture is warm use a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut the treats into hearts. Transfer the cut treats to a flat surface and allow them to cool completely. The quicker the better as it gets extra sticky as the mixture begins to cool

4. Once the cereal treats are fully cooled, melt the white chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water. Make sure that your bowl doesn't touch the water, as this this burn and spoil the chocolate. Stir the mixture until smooth. Remove the bowl from the heat and gently stir. Dip each heart treat halfway into the chocolate and transfer them onto a piece of parchment.


5. With the remaining white chocolate add a few drops of red food colouring to the bowl and pop the pink chocolate into a small piping bag or zip lock bag and snip a small hole into the end. Drizzle diagonally over your hearts for a fancy effect and leave to harden. If you're using anu sprinkles or decoration top the treats while the chocolate is still soft, then allow the chocolate to set before serving.

Your little ones are going to love snacking on these cute treats this Valentine’s Day! And with these fun recipe ideas, you can adjust the recipe for your treats to create some adorable snacks to serve your family during your holiday celebration.
