Valentine Krispy Treat


I have 2 sick guys home with me today.  I think it’s just a cold but they both have low-grade fevers.  In addition to all of the usual ways I must care for my children when they are sick, I thought I would make them a treat to let them know how much I love them and want them to feel better.  I thought I would put my Wilton heart pan I bought at the thrift store the other day to good use and make them some rice krispy treats.
I melted my butter (1/3 cup) and added my marshmallows (about 10 oz) and when they started to melt, I added just a few drops of pink food coloring.  Stirred it all up, added a sprinkling of hope you get well soon and a giant helping of love and spread it out in the heart shaped pan. 

I think it made them feel better because they said it looked like raw hamburger meat and they were going to try to trick their sister when she gets home from school and tell her they’re eating raw meat.  LOL!  Dont’cha just love boys!!!

I think for Valentine’s Day, I will make some more in pink and red and use heart shape cookie cutters.  Then, I can wrap them up in some clear treat bags with a little ribbon and maybe a cute tag with a cheesy saying like “My heart is in your hands”. LOL!  I don’t know. It’s just an idea…
