I love edible gifts, especially for Valentine's Days! Rice Krispie Conversation Hearts are so fun and easy! This is a great project to for the entire family! Below I have the from scratch homemade version, plus a cute way to package them as a gift. I have also included a video that is a slightly different way! I tried to include options for everyone!
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 package (10 oz., about 40) JET-PUFFED Marshmallow or 4 cups JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows
- 6 cups Rice Krispie cereal
- Heart-Shaped Cookie Cutter
- Decorating Frosting
- Icing Writer
- P-Touch Embellish or P-touch Embellish ELITE
- P-Touch Embellish 1/2" Pink or White Satin Ribbon Cartridge
- Clear Treat Bags
- Sheet Pan
- Parchment Paper
In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
Add Rice Krispie cereal and still until evenly coated.
Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
Spread the mixture evenly on the baking sheet making it about 2" thick.
Let cool completely.
Once cool, use the heart cookie cutter to punch out hearts.
Cover each heart with frosting and write a message on it with the icing writers.
Let the hearts sit out so the icing dries.
While the icing is drying create personalized packaging for your conversation hearts by using the P-touch Embellish or Embellish Elite. Insert a ribbon cartridge, type and design your message, and print.
Once the treats are dry place them in individual bags and tie them closed with the personalized ribbon.
The videos give you tips for creating the treats with pre-made Rice Krispie bars, a rolling pin, heart bunch, white chocolate and food coloring.
To add a personal touch, put it in a treat bag and tie it with personalized ribbon. We made the personalized ribbon on the P-touch Embellish!
Happy Valentine's Day!
