Rice Krispy Treat Kissess

Since my last Valentine’s treat for my husband wasn’t his favorite, I decided to make something that I was 100% sure he would like. So I made him extra large rice krispy kisses! They were super easy to make and pretty fun too!

To make them, you just start off by making rice krispy treats like you normally would. If you don’t know how, then here are the quick directions.

Ingredients:

6 cups of rice krispies
1 bag of marshmallows
3 tablespoons of butter

Directions:

Put the marshmallows and butter in a bowl and heat it in the microwave for 2 mintues. Stir it and then heat it for 1 more minute. Make sure that you spray your spoon with Pam before you stir, or else they will stick to the spoon really bad. Then mix in the rice krispies and stir it all together. Next comes the fun part!

In order to make them look like kisses, you are going to put the mix into funnels. Once again, make sure that the funnels are sprayed with Pam very well, or else will be a pain to get them out! In order to get it down in there good, I just sprayed my hands with Pam and then pushed the rice krispy mix down into the funnel. I had 3 different sizes of funnels that I used. Then I just put the extra in a pan to eat.

Once they are done cooling, then you can take them out of the funnel and wrap them in foil. I also molded mine a little to make them look a little more like kisses. Then you can write or type out a short line to your honey and put it on a strip of paper to stick out the top of the kiss. To wrap mine, I set the kiss flat on the foil and then just started folding it upwards. Once I got towards the top, I started twisting it and tore off extra pieces of foil where I needed to. Then when that special someone opens it, they will find a sweet treat inside!

Strawberry Valentine Oreo Cookies

Standard

IMG_7452These are some cookies that I made for my hubby for Valentine’s Day. They were really easy to make and very tasty! They were a big hit with my church friends and co-workers…not so much with my husband. I didn’t realize how much cream cheese they had in them until I had already started, and he doesn’t like cream cheese. But even so, he still ate one and said that it would’ve been great with regular cake icing inbetween. Those who like cream cheese, you will love these cookies! Here is the recipe and the link to where I got the idea.

Strawberry Valentine Oreo Cookies:

Ingredients:
Cookies:
1 package of strawberry cake mix
2 eggs
3/4 cup of shortening

Frosting:
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 stick of butter, softened
2 tsp. vanilla
4 c. powdered sugar

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together strawberry cake mix, eggs and shortening until well combined. The dough will be pretty thick. Roll dough into balls, making sure they are all similar in size. Place dough onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Immediately transfer cookies to a cooking rack.

Mix together cream cheese, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar until smooth. Spread onto cooled cookies and sandwich together.

*Makes 12-15 cookies after they are sandwiched together

I also think these would be wonderful using a red velvet cake mix instead of strawberry. You could do both and have red and pink cookies for Valentine’s Day!

Here are some pictures of the baking process.
