If you’ve been reading this blog awhile, you know I love creating Tablescapes, and with that comes a fun custom placecard. Even though our family of four sits in the same spot every night, having a placecard turns the everyday meal into a special event. (Even if take-out is being served!)
Start by making the standard Rice Krispie Treat recipe, then form the warm mixture into heart shape molds. Gently insert a craft or candy stick before the treats cool, reforming the heart-shape with buttered fingers if necessary. (
TWSS, dedicated to Emily) Allow them to cool and set completely before handling.
I have a heart muffin pan, but you could just as easily press the mixture onto a cookie sheet or dish, and cut hearts with a cookie cutter once they’ve cooled completely. Tie on some ribbon and a personalized gift tag, and you’ve got a sweet treat of a placecard!
You could bag them up for guests to take home, or give to neighbors and teachers as small Valentine gifts.
If I’d had the supplies, I surely would have decorated them like Skip to My Lou:
