DIY Valentine’s Rice Krispy Heart Pops

 

hesrtpopsI always have these grand ideas for cute Valentine’s day crafts, recipes and DIY’s and then something happens and before I know it, Valentine’s has come and gone and I have straight up missed it.  So this year, I am starting early.  Yesterday Caleb and I made these tasty rice krispy treats (okay, I made them and he stole chocolates and ran with them the entire time) and he is planning on handing them out to all the girl-babies at church. Because he is a ladies man like that.

These only took me roughly 25 minutes and with minimal mess. So here is what you need to make these yourself!

Ingredient List:

Rice Krispy Cereal
12 ounces mini marshmallows
2 tbsp butter
8 ounces melting chocolate
heart shaped cookie cutter
festive sprinkles
cellophane bags
twist ties
to & from labels
cake pop sticks

Directions:

Heat marshmallows and butter over low in saucepan until melted completely. Pour 4 cups of rice cereal into bowl, and pour over melted marshmallows. Mix through and press out mixture onto wax paper. Flatten with a rolling pin. Cut out heart shapes and push cake pop stick into the bottom while maintaining the shape of the heart. Let those sit and melt chocolate disks in a bowl in the microwave (stir every 30 seconds until melted). Add 1 tbsp olive oil to make dipping and drizzling easier once the chocolate is melting. Now you are ready to decorate! Dip some of the hearts, I did half one some of mine and then used a spoon to drizzle others. Sprinkle festive decor and nonpareils to make them look extra cute. Finally, place in cellophane and twist with a tie and label if you want to give them as gifts! And that is really all! Pretty easy, right?!
