STEP ONE: PREPARE INGREDIENTS

Start by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper.

Open each Rice Krispie Bar package and discard the wrappers.

Insert a lollipop stick gently into the base of each Rice Krispie Bar and place it on the baking sheet.

Put the baking sheet into the freezer for about 15-20 minutes.

STEP THREE: MELT THE CANDY

While the Rice Krispie bars are in the freezer go ahead and start melting the candy melts.

Place about 1/2 of each bag of candy melts into separate microwave safe bowls. Microwave one bowl at a time for 30 seconds intervals, stirring in between each interval until the candy is smooth and melted.

STEP FOUR: DECORATE THE RICE KRISPIE BARS

Remove the Rice Krispie Bars from the freezer and begin dipping them one at a time in the melted chocolate. Dip the bar about halfway and allow any excess chocolate to drip back off into the bowl.

Lay the bar on the baking sheet and add candy eyes in random places.

Repeat until all the bars are completed. This recipe makes 8 bars.

STEP FIVE: PACKAGE INDIVIDUALLY

Allow the Valentine Rice Krispie Bars to cool completely. You can even place them back in the freezer if you want them to set up fast.

These can be bagged individually in cute holiday cellophane bags and make perfect treats for school. They will also stay fresh longer if they are in a sealed bag!
