|3 tablespoons margarine|
|6 cups mini (or 60 regular-size) marshmallows|
|Red food coloring|
|9 cups Rice Krispies cereal|
|Heart-shaped cookie cutter|
|Plastic bags, yarn|
2. Melt the margarine in a large pot over low heat. Add the marshmallows, stirring them continuously until they melt. Remove the pan from the heat. (You can also do this step in the microwave) Stir in drops of red food coloring until the color receives a thumbs-up from the chef.
3. Add the Rice Krispies, stirring until they are evenly coated with marshmallow. Spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet.
4. With waxed paper (or lightly buttered hands), smooth out the mixture, spreading it to an even thickness.
5. Cut out hearts with the cookie cutter. Place each heart in a clear plastic bag, tie on a yarn bow, and they're ready for giving.
I took the hearts and dipped one side in melted white chocolate candy melts. Then I sprinkled pink sugar on top.
