more sweets for my sweetie

So I've really been getting into the Valentine spirit. After all, love IS grand. And what better way to express our love than through food. Baked goods, to be exact. In fact, all month long Mia and I have been playing with easy Valentine sweets.

Last night we made these Rice Krispies hearts. These were super simple to make, so it was the perfect mom/daughter "baking" project. We just made the Rice Krispies treats as instructed on the box. While still warm, we spread the rice and marshmallow mixture into a large tray, making sure the mixture was spread thinly and evenly on the bottom of the tray. We wanted a thin layer (a little more than about 1/2" thick) so that the treats wouldn't overrun our cookie cutters. When the treats cooled, we used cookie cutters to make large, medium and small hearts. Using the leftover candy melts from the cake pops, we then dipped each heart and decorated them with drizzles. Easy, cute and delicious!
