Rice Krispy Kisses
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.
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.
