Rice Krispy Kisses

I saw this idea on Roots and Wings Co. and had to try it out. This was a fun activity to do with my kids. I let my son make the Rice Krispie mixture and then we greased some funnels and pressed the mixture into them. You can use the same funnel to make multiple kisses. Once the kisses set up we wrapped them in tin foil. I typed some messages in word perfect and then printed them and cut them out. We stuck these in the top of the tin foil. You could make these for any occasion. I typed I Love You!, XOXO, and Happy Valentine's Day!

Here is the original Rice Krispies treat recipe:

3 Tbsp butter or margarine
1o oz package of regular marshmallows or 4 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies

In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.


Note: I bought a 3 pack of funnels from the Dollar Tree

back when my kids were in school I made these for their Valentines Day Parties. With a smaller funnel and coco krispies. They were always a big hit with the kids :)

Just a few tips after making these. Wear plastic gloves and work quickly. (Team effort works well) Working with the rice krispies are warm. Spray gloves and funnel with non-stick spray because stickiness occurs. After taking the rice krispie out of the funnel, wrap in saran wrap before wrapping in aluminum foil. Again, stickiness. The aluminum foil that comes in sections for baking potatoes works well for wrapping. Each section is just the right size.

My adventure turned out great. Took to work and one guy (who loves sweets) wouldn't touch them. I asked him if he tried one. He replied, "No, I just don't want that much CHOCOLATE!" After explaining what it was, he dug right in!
