A ‘Sweet Heart’ Treat

Image

DSC_0974 For a home-made sweet treat – our tip for Valentines Day is:

Pick up a large size heart shaped cutter from your local craft store and make rice krispie treat hearts. To do this make up the krispie treats and spread the warm mixture into a 9 x 13 pan lined with greased parchment paper- and leave an overhang (enough to grab it out). *Tip: You really want the parchment paper to make cleanup an absolute breeze and to get the treats out of the pan. Otherwise, you will be kicking yourself that you didn’t use as much as recommended.*

Set aside for at least 4 hours or overnight to cool.

For packaging, I suggest getting a little box or plastic plate and setting a doilie ontop – this is your presentation’s starting point. Using your heart shaped cutter, cut out the pieces and lift one by one onto the plated doile. *Tip: It might be helpful to have a spatula / knife to excavate the excess krispy  treats – to get enough ‘elbow’ room for lifting the first heart out with ease.* Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar and artfully arrange a few raspberries or strawberry slices.  Voila! A sweet for your sweet! Enjoy! And Happy February!
