Just a quick pop in to show you what I did yesterday as a part of "Honouring my Valentine"
Heart shaped Rice Krispie Squares! Cowboy LOVED them, he said they were so tasty, and they are a 'reminds him of childhood' treat. I don't make them much so he really appreciated it.
The heart cutter cost me 89 cents at the kitchen store! It's a sturdy metal one that will last me years and years.
You could fancy them up with red icing or sprinkles, but I didn't have any and didn't want to buy some just for this.
When we were making them, Mac said "I so cite-ing give krispie Daddy!"
Translation: I'm so excited to give Rice Krispies to Daddy!
He knows that I've got a little something for him everyday until Valentines day, and he's super stoked for it. I haven't decided what to do today, I think I will write a little letter, and instead of putting it in his truck, I'll put it on the floor where he shucks his work pants when he gets home. (I have a hook there, I swear! He just WONT put them on it. But alas, this is honour your valentine fortnight, not 'change the things that buy you about your spouse week' so I'll ignore and take advantage of it).
Happy close to Valentines day!

Melt butter on low in a large pot. Add marshmallows stirring until there is no chunks. You don't gotta stir the whole time. Add in vanilla. Take off heat and mix in cereal. Spread out onto a greased cookie sheet, the thickness of your cookie cutter. Cool, do the cut outs and serve!
