We gave a Valentine's Day makeover to one of the easiest desserts on the planet.
Work: 20 minutes
Total: 1 hour
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
2 cups white candy melts
1/4 cup red candy melts
- Grease a 9-by-13-inch pan with cooking spray. In a 6-quart pot melt the butter. Add marshmallows and stir to coat with butter. Continue cooking and stirring over low heat until marshmallows are completely melted; remove from heat and stir in cereal.
- Using a greased spatula or your hands, press the cereal mixture firmly into the pan. Let cool completely. Invert treats onto a cutting board.
- Melt white and red candy melts. Transfer red melts to a zip-top bag and snip off a small corner for piping. Cut treats in half and work with one piece at a time so you can marble the candy before it sets.
- Spread melted white candy on top of one half of the treats. Dot surface with red melts (dots should be about the size of a pea). Use a toothpick or skewer to marble. Repeat with remaining half. Allow candy to set for about 30 minutes before cutting with heart-shaped cutters.
