Ingredients

Instructions

  • Begin by spraying your heart-shaped silicone mold with cooking spray and set aside. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside as well.
  • In a medium-sized saucepan, melt 2 tbsp butter over medium heat. Add 2 cups miniature marshmallows and allow to melt.
  • Once melted, add red gel food coloring and remove from heat. Mix until marshmallow mixture is well tinted and then add 3 cups rice cereal and fold.
  • Press the pink rice cereal treats into each heart-shaped section of your silicone mold.
  • In a smaller saucepan, melt remaining butter and add remaining marshmallows (you should have 1 cup left). Allow to melt and add violet food coloring and mix. Remove from heat.
  • Fold in remaining 2 cups rice cereal and flatten it onto your lined baking sheet.
  • Remove your heart-shaped pink cereal treats from its mold and using your smaller cookie cutter, cut out a small heart from the center of each one.
  • Using the same cookie cutter, cut out 6 small hearts from your purple rice cereal treats. (Save the scraps to snack on later!)
  • Place the small violet hearts in the center of each larger cereal treat. Serve and enjoy!
