Krispie Kisses

Are you looking for a fun and easy Valentine's Day treat?  This one is a favorite of mine! 

The first year I tried them, I surprised my kids with them, and they were completely awestruck.  It did wonders for my ego.  Since then I have let the kids help me make the treats, and they have so, so much fun.  They love smashing the krispie goo into the funnels, deciding what to write on the tag and wrapping them in foil.  Somehow I have managed to make them year after year without taking a single picture, so I borrowed this one from Bee in our Bonnet.  She also gives some instructions and has some other cute ideas, too.

Here's the basic idea.  Melt your butter and marshmallows and add the rice krispies as usual.  You can add color if you want for the extra wow factor.  Then, instead of pouring all the goo into a big pan to set up, you use a funnel to make the kiss shape.  You can use any size you want or even an assortment.  Write your sentiment on a tag and then wrap the kiss in foil with the tag sticking out the top.  Voila!  That's all there is to it!  So simple and so fun!
