Rice Krispy Treat Kisses~RePost

This is a repost from February 11th of last year.
I started making these for my kids on Valentine's day a loooong time ago.
Now even my grown kids still want one every year.  
(I haven't seen these on blogland before, so either everybody and their dog knows about them and it's too boring to post about, or it's not a widespread thing. I'm hoping for the latter.)
They're really simple and really easy to make.
Start with a basic recipe for Rice Krispy Treats.
(I added a recipe at the end of the post, just in case you've never made these. Just in case you live in, I don't know, Outer Mongolia and have never heard of Rice Krispy Treats before.)
I doubled the batch.
Then take a funnel
like this one, and butter the inside. Butter your hands, too.
Then you just smoosh the Rice Krispy Treats into the funnel. Don't pack it too tight or you'll have something so hard it will be almost inedible. Almost. Just make them firm enough that when you take the treats out of the funnel that you'll have a shape like this.
I pinch the top and press down a little, to make the sides a little curvier.
You can fill the funnel all the way to the rim, or just half way, to make smaller ones.
These are some small ones.
Wait for them to set up.
Then melt a bag of chocolate chips and dip the tips of the kisses 
in the melted chocolate.
One bag is enough for 6 large and 12 smaller kisses.
Then you have to wait for the chocolate to set up. 
While I was waiting, I printed out sheets of paper that said "I Love You" in a light blue font and cut them into strips. You can say whatever you want on yours. 
(Clean your room, stop teasing your sister, buy me a house and a car when you grow up...whatever you want.)
 Then you just wrap them all up in tin foil!
It's so easy.
Kids love them.
And did I mention that they're easy?

Rice Krispy Treats

Melt 3 Tbs. of butter in a large bowl. Add 40 large marshmallows. Microwave on high until the marshmallows start to puff up. Stir until smooth. You may have to microwave a little longer. 
Add 6 cups of Rice Krispies, stir until thoroughly blended. Pat into a buttered pan, or shape into kisses.

           Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend!

I am glad you reposted this. When my computer crashed I had all kinds of recipes saved into my documents and lost them all. This was one of them. How cute! I wish we were going to be around on Valentine's week to make them! xo Diana

Okay. another great post. Those are so cute. I guess I'm just not domestic at all anymore. I wish I had someone to make those for. No family in town. I'd make them for myself but they are like a gazillion calories ... right?

Oh I am making these tomorrow! They are adorable, Suzanne. I always add another type of cereal to my treats- Kroger's house brand of granola cereal w/nuts. ( oh, and more buttah!) Oh my, does that make a difference. Thanks for the great and fun idea. ♥ Sue
