Heart Shaped Krispies

What kid doesn't like a Rice Krispie Treat?

Here in our house, it's a staple. I make these at least once every week. They're easy, cheap, and not bad when it comes to a healthy snack. I mix it up a little each week by using chocolate crisp rice, fruity pebbles, coconut, or chips - butterscotch or chocolate...whatever suits my fancy!
This time it's a little added food coloring and cutting them into heart shapes for my little sweethearts of course.
So if you haven't made these before here's the recipe:

INGREDIENTS
1/2 stick Margarine or butter
10 oz bag of miniature marshmallows
6 cups of crispy rice cereal


DIRECTIONS
* Butter a 9 x 13 pan and set aside

* In a large saucepan melt the margarine, then add the marshmallows while continuously stirring, as not to burn. Until they melt .

*Add the crispies and continue to stir until it is incorporated, turning off the heat.

* Take a buttered scraper, and scrape into the pan and flatten out

* After allowing to cool , cut out the heart shapes.

***If adding color, add during the marshmallow melting time.
