Everyone knows that Valentine’s Day is for lovers but we here at Today’s Modern Family didn’t want to leave out the kids that mean so much to us on Valentine’s Day so I thought I would inject a little bit of fun that I often share with my two younger children. It’s a fun little project and one that will create a special memory with your kids and plus…who in the world doesn’t like Krispy Treats? Enjoy!
1 food or oil funnel (can be found at any dollar store or in the houseware section of your local store)
3 Tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
- OR -
4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Krispy Rice cereal
Food coloring (optional)
1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2. Add cereal. Stir until well coated. Stir in food coloring (optional).
3. Use funnel and press krispies into the funnel and pull mold off.
4. Wrap in plastic wrap and then in tin foil and place a strip of tissue paper (cut thinly) with your favorite message written on the paper and wrap foil around part of the paper to give the krispy that special Kiss look.
Have fun making memories!
