Valentine Krispie Hearts


With valentine's day approaching fast, I have been thinking of things to do with Emily. Although I personally don't really like Valentines day, I want to make it special for her, After all its a day to celebrate love, and there is no one I love more than my little E. These yummy Krispie heart treats are easy to make, and you can add your own twist on them. We had lots of fun making these, and although the marshmallows became pretty sticky, Emily really enjoyed herself. 



Ingredients
Rice krispies (5 cups)
Marshmallow fluff (1 Jar)
Butter/margarine (4 tablespoons)

How to make them?
Use a baking tray, or Pyrex dish, and line it with tin foil.
Melt the margarine in a large saucepan over a low heat. Add the marshmalow fluff and cook over a low heat for about 5 minutes while stirring constantly, then remove from the heat. Add the rice krispies and stir until they are well covered. Once all of the rice krispies are covered you add chocolate buttons, or mini marshmallows if you would like something extra. We added chocolate buttons. Use a spactula to and press the mixture evenly into the dish. Leave the mixture to chill in a fridge for 30-35 minutes.

Once your mixture has chilled, tip it out onto a plate, or surface. The mixture should be firm, and you will now be able to shape it into squares, or use some heart cutters to make heart shaped krispie treats like we did. 


Emily absolutely loved this activity, she was happy to mix the ingredients, although she much preferred to eat the mixture. She had lots of fun pushing the heart cookie cutters into the mixture. I only had to show her what to do once, and she would confidently do it herself after that. I'm so proud of how quickly she picks up things. Of course I had to help her push the cutters down when she picked where she wanted them as the were a little tough.

  1. My five-year-old daughter will love this! I don't think we have a heart-shaped cookie cutter though, must watch out for that one the next time we go shopping, hopefully before Valentines Day ;) x

  2. That sounds like a very scrummy treat. I have only ever stuck them together with chocolate before. Does the marshmallow not stick to the pan?

  3. not only do they look lovely and yummy, but they also look like something my children would love to make, for the sweetness and gooey mess.
    I am not sure they would last until Valentine's day, but maybe this is an activity I could do with them on the actual day, your daughter looks like she was chief taste tester too :)

  5. This looks a really cute activity. I think my 3 year old twins could have a go at these. It might just be a bit of a challenge to get them made before all the mixture has been eaten.
