You will need:
- half a stick of butter
- 1 bag of marshmallows (10 or 16 OZ)
- 1 box of Rice Krispies (If you use a 16 OZ bag of marshmallows, you might want a box and a little extra)
- a pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- non-stick cooking spray
- Popsicle sticks
- white melting chocolate
- Valentine’s Day Sprinkles
Melt the butter in the bottom of a large bowl. Pour the marshmallows on top. Microwave in 30 second intervals until the marshmallows are just melted. It is possible to scorch marshmallows so watch them closely. They are ready when they look mostly melted with a few visible lumps still left in them. Mix the marshmallows until smooth, adding the salt and vanilla. Add the box of cereal and mix until they are thoroughly covered.
Spray a 10×13 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Dump the mixture into the pan. Wet your hands and shake off the excess water. Press the mixture down into the pan. The moisture on your hands will keep the cereal from sticking to your hands. Allow the pan to cool completely.
Cut the Rice Krispie treats into squares and put a popsicle stick through each one.
