kiss Looking for something fun to do in the kitchen with mom or dad? Make rice krispy kisses in all kinds of sizes for your favorite person!

You will need:

1/4 cup margarine or butter 1- 10 oz package of marshmallows, mini or regular size (4 cups total) 5 cups crisped rice cereal, regular or chocolate large bowl and spoon cooking spray or oil/shortening aluminum foil piece of thin cardboard scissors waxed paper plate two plastic baggies paper felt-tipped pen an adult to help you

Instructions:

// Spray microwave-safe, large mixing bowl with cooking spray so mixture won’t stick to the sides. Place marshmallows and margarine in bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Mix well. Microwave on high for one minute more and then stir. Be careful not to burn yourself on the hot marshmallow-margarine mix. Get an adult to help you. Add cereal and stir until coated. Let mixture cool for a few minutes while you make base of big kiss. Trace a plate onto piece of thin cardboard and cut out. Trace again on waxed paper and cut out. Make an “x” out of two sheets of foil, then place cardboard circle in the center, followed by waxed paper. This is the base and the wrapping for the kiss. Spray two baggies with cooking spray and place on hands (cooking spray side out!) . Place cooled crispy mix onto waxed paper and cardboard circles and shape into kiss. The baggies will keep your hands from getting yucky. When you’ve shaped your kiss the way you like it, spray the inside of the foil with cooking spray (so kiss won’t stick to it) and lift foil sides towards top of kiss, wrapping to look like a Hershey Kiss. Write a special message or “Big Kiss” on a thin strip of white paper. Crepe paper works good too. Give to a friend or your mom or dad.

To Eat

Have an adult cut it with a knife and eat wedges of the Big Kiss. My favorite kind is chocolate – yum!

Note:

You can use this idea to wrap cookies, candies and other homemade treats as a giant kiss.
