- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 bag regular sized marshmallows (10 ounces)
- 6 cups crisp rice cereal
- 1 cup pink candy melts (you can buy these at craft stores)
- 1/3 cup sprinkles
- 12 lollipop sticks or straws, cut in half
In large saucepan melt the butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from the heat.
Add the cereal. Stir until well coated.
Using a buttered spatula or wax paper, evenly press the mixture into 9-inch x 13-inch x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Using a 2-inch heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out hearts.
Melt the candy melts using a double boiler. Remove from the heat. Using a small offset spatula, coat half of each heart with melted candy and sprinkle with sprinkles. Place onto a wire rack until the candy coating hardens.
Gently skewer each heart with a straw or lollipop stick and serve.
