Valentine’s Day “Kiss” Recipe



I’m pretty sure most us have made rice crisp dessert squares before but why not shape it into something extra yummy and special for this Valentine’s Day?  As Brandnewmoms, we don’t have hours to spend baking. But that doesn’t mean home made gifts are out of the question! Here is a cute spin on an old favourite!



 You probably already have all of these ingredients in your pantry already!

Cutting your butter into smaller pieces allows it to melt more evenly and faster.

 The fresher the marshmallows, the softer and chewier your rice crisp kisses! Lightly grease your spatula to prevent a sticky mess.




Lightly grease your mold or bowl.

With greased fingertips hand mold the top of the Kiss!



Using a permanent marker, write your Valentine’s Day message on pieces of parchment paper!



Tuck the parchment into the Kiss and wrap with aluminum foil!

    Hi there, I’m stopping by from the Tuesday blog hop. I love making Rice Krispies, these would be so much better for you than the huge chocolate kisses. Hah either way though, they are both yummy. Thanks for sharing.

    I love this! My sister used to make something similar with different kinds of chocolate and peanut butter! They were always a hit. I love adding mint chocolate chips to rice krispies it’s my favorite flavor.
