These are a different take on the more traditional Rice Krispie Treat. They are fun for Valentines, because you shape them like giant Hershey's Kisses and you can put a slice of paper with a printed "message" sticking out of the top. :)
1- 6oz pkg. semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
1 cup light Karo Syrup
1 Tbsp. Butter
1/2 tsp Vanilla
6 cups Crisp Rice Cereal
You will also need:
Small to Medium Kitchen funnel, or different sizes
In a large pot, melt chocolate and butter with syrup. When melted, remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Stir in cereal.
Spray a funnel lightly with cooking spray, press in cereal mixture, packing well, filling to top of funnel. Turn onto wax paper and release from mold. Continue with remaining cereal mixture. Cut a square of foil, and place a "Kiss" in the center of it. Wrap it up, twisting foil to resemble a Hershey's Kiss. If you have a "message" on a strip of paper, insert it before you tighten up the top. Voila! You have Chocolate Krispy Kisses.
Or you can just mash 'em into a pan and eat 'em! :)
