Rice Krispy Kisses

February 8, 2012

I first made these Valentine treats more than 10 years ago.  It was a really fast project to do with Creamie last weekend.  Hershey Kisses are one of my favorite treats.  They are just cute, right?  Using an oil funnel (a clean, new one) you can make a much bigger version in no time flat.

First make a batch of Rice Krispy Treats.  Melt 3 Tablespoons of butter in a large saucepan and add 4 cups mini marshmallows or 1 10 oz bag of large marshmallows (about 40).  Stir constantly till the marshmallows are melted and then stir in 6 cups of Rice Krispy cereal.

Working quickly pack the warm krispy mixture into a new, clean oil funnel.  Turn them out on wax paper (or anything else that marshmallows wont stick to) and fill the funnel up again.  After they have cooled a bit, but are still a little bit malleable, use your fingers to tuck in any stray krispies around the bottom (large end) of the krispy kiss treat.

adding a note

When they have completely cooled wrap them in plastic wrap, folding the ends around the bottom.  This will keep them fresh a lot longer than if you skip this step.  And your little paper strip won’t stick to the marshmallows either.  Then add a strip of words or a love note or something and wrap them up inside a square of tinfoil.

Tada, easy peasy.  My funnel was about 4 inches tall and one batch of this recipe made about 5 of them.  I had completely forgotten that I have a small spice funnel that is only about an inch and a half tall. Next time I’m going to make a few little tiny ones too.

    Brilliant!!! These would be an awesome treat to take to school – peanut free! My daughter could have lots of fun writing different messages on the ‘tags’. Thank you!!!

    This is such a great idea! I want to make a bunch of small ones for friends. Do you think that it would be okay to make them on the weekend and save them until Valentine’s Day to pass them out? Would it be better to store them in an airtight container and then wrap them up closer to the date? Thanks!

      You can make these a few days ahead, no problem. Just wrap them tightly with the plastic wrap and they should stay fresh!
