Ur a QT.

A few weeks ago, I made Sugar Cookie Conversation Hearts on 5 Minutes for Mom. I was so pleased with my creation that I wanted more. You see, conversation heart candies have always been a favourite Valentine candy of mine. Though not the most popular choice, there’s something about them that makes me feels so nostalgic. I’m a softie like that.

In fact, I was on the hunt for conversation hearts before writing-up my article on 5 Minutes for Mom. For the life of me, I couldn’t find any! I hunted around, drove around town… and absolutely nothing!

This is why I am on such a conversation hearts kick now.

My Conversation Hearts Rice Cereal Treats are really easy to make! I opted for fondant cut-outs to spell out some cute words. I am so eager to serve these on February 14th!

How to Make Conversation Hearts Rice Cereal Treats

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • One drop violet gel food colouring
  • 3 cups rice cereal
  • 3-4 oz. white fondant
  • One drop red gel food colouring

Yields: approx. 6 rice cereal treats

Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.

Melt butter in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Add marshmallows and mix.

Once the marshmallows have completely melted, remove from heat.

Add one drop of violet food colouring to the melted marshmallows and stir.

Add rice cereal to the marshmallow mixture and fold.

Spread the rice cereal treat mixture on your lined baking sheet. My trick is that I wet my fingers before spreading the cereal treat mixture to avoid any stickiness.

Use a heart cookie cutter to cut out heart shapes.

If you have any scraps left over, put them together and re-spread to cut out a couple more hearts.

Allow the cereal treats to set for about an hour.

Place one drop of red gel food colouring on your white fondant. Knead until the fondant is completely tinted.

Using a rolling pin, roll out the fondant so that it’s about ½ of an inch thick.

  2. I used to enjoy getting these for Valentines not that I ate them I just liked seeing what they said. As for the treats you made I think I will make some for both my son to bring to school and also for my husband to take to work. If I can I will make enough for my sons school staff to have one as well. Because they do so much for my son.
