14 Days of Valentines - Day 13

Well, it just wouldn't be Valentine's Day without a sweet treat and chocolate, right?! So, here's something you can whip up in less than half an hour! Rice Krispie treats!

So, in case you've never made these, here's the recipe. I love the idea of saving time by microwaving the ingredients.

I decided that I just wanted to make a few, so I cut the recipe in half. I measured everything out before starting.

So, first you melt the butter. Then, you add the marshmallows and stir them in, coating them with the warm butter. Next,  you melt the marshmallows, too. I used the mini marshmallows because I thought they would melt faster.

After stirring up the melted goodness, quickly add the Rice Krispies cereal and stir. Make sure you get all of the cereal coated.

Instead of a regular pan, I decide to use my Wilton Heart Shape Whoopie Pie pan. I placed a scoop of the mixture into the heart and pressed them in to mold. They start to harden and shape very fast, so work quickly!

Because the pan is non-stick, the hearts pop out very easily. But wait! There's more!

I melted some Guittard Dark Chocolate Candy Melts.

I dipped and drizzled the chocolate over the hearts. For some of the hearts,  I did the whole top, others I just did a half.

Like I said, it took less than half an hour to do a dozen hearts. You still have time to make a homemade treat!
