Valentine’s Day Snacks

Rice Krispie Treat Kisses

Make a batch of rice krispie treats following the directions on the box. Before they cool, press them into a small funnel to make a Hershey’s kiss shape. (They pop in and out of funnel easily and quickly.) When cool, wrap each in aluminum foil; be sure to insert a long strip of white paper into the top of the kiss with a special message or the child’s name!
