I whipped up the sweetest chocolatey treat this past weekend! I know that Valentine’s day is tomorrow but I just had to share this with all of you! These are the perfect last minute sweet treat for Valentine’s Day! This is all you have to do to make these darling heart sandwiches for those you love any day of the year!
Just mix some cocoa crispy rice cereal with some marshmallow creme (that has been warmed first in the microwave) and spread it on a rimmed cookie sheet lined with a silpat mat. To ensure that the mixture sets with a nice flat suface, just cover the mixture with some wax paper and rolled over it with a rolling pin. It works like a charm!
After 30 minutes press a heart shape cookie cutter into the the sweet crunchy mixture…
And out pop it out on a plate.
It’s perfect just like that, dontcha think?
But no, don’t stop there.
Go ahead and slather the heart with a generous amount of Nutella®.
Then top it with another rice crispy heart to make the most adorable (not to mention sweetest) heart sandwich ever.
And then don’t stop there. Cut-pop-out-slather-eat-repeat to your heart’s content.
And then make another batch for those you love.
Sending YOU lots of love this Valentine’s Day and each day all the year through.
Here’s the recipe!
Cocoa Rice Crispy & Nutella Heart Sandwiches
(Makes 6-8 heart sandwiches)
What you’ll need:
7 cups coca rice crispy cereal
1- 13 oz jar marshmallow creme
1- cup Nutella® spread
What you’ll do:
Pour a 13 ounce jar of marshmallow creme into a bowl and microwave for 60 seconds until the marshmallow creme is soft and easy to mix. Next pour in 7 cups of cocoa crispy rice cereal and fold mixture together with a spatula until incorporated. Pour the mixture onto a sided cookie sheet that is covered with a silpat mat. Spread mixture evenly into a 1/2 thickness. (Work quickly while the marshmallow is still warm and easy to spread). Once you’ve got all of the mixture spread onto the cookie sheet, cover with wax paper and gently roll with a rolling pin to help ensure a nice smooth surface. Let mixture set for 30 minutes before cutting. With a heart cookie cutter, cut out 12 to 16 heart shapes (depending on the size of the cutter that you use). Spread half of the heart shapes generously with Nutella and place the other heart shapes on top to make sandwiches.
Eat & Enjoy!
