Cupid's arrow has flung through space and made its way to this delicious treat.
We've taken a popular kid-friendly snack — the crispy rice treat — and given it the Valentine's Day treatment, complete with a layer of icing, sprinkles and a candy arrow. Your kids — and their friends — will love them!
What You'll Need:
- Crispy rice treat (we used this recipe, but store-bought is just as good)
- White candy melts
- Red candy melts
- Gummy hearts (we used red and white)
- Heart-shaped cookie cutter
- Warm water
- Resealable bag
How It's Made:
- Use your heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out a piece of your crispy rice treat .
- Set two gummy hearts (one red and one white) aside.
- Cut a triangle out of the top of one of your gummy hearts (the rounded side), insert toothpick at the base of heart (the pointy end).
- Next, insert a toothpick into a full gummy, but this time at the top where the two rounded parts meet.
- Fill two bowls with warm water, and fill one resealable bag with white candy melts and another resealable bag with red candy melts.
- Place each bag into its own bowl of warm water for roughly two minutes, until fully melted.
- Insert both toothpicks — one at either end of the crispy rice treat heart — to create your candy arrow.
- Using a pair of scissors, snip off a corner of the bags so you can pipe the melted candy easily.
- Decorate your crispy rice hearts as desired.
