After the kids finished their candlelight St. Valentine's Day breakfast, we started on the rest of the treats! Just like this fabulous tutorial from Lisa at Korean American Mommy, I made these yummy nummies out of rice krispie treats cut into an assortment of hearts with a candy coating.
I don't know if you can tell from the pictures, but I didn't dip the large hearts in chocolate. Instead, I used the candy melts to just coat one side. I didn't want to risk them coming off the end of the lollipop stick. (And I also noticed that the tiny hearts looked more like heart shaped blobs after I dipped them.) Once they were firmed up, I used a zip plastic bag with the corner snipped off to create the delicate mesh like lines. The trick to lines like these is a very tiny hole in the corner of the bag and a fast side to side almost scribbling like motion with you hand. (You remember how to scribble, right? : )Don't worry if you dribble on the waxed paper underneath. When the candy sets up, some of the lines will still be attached making for a really cool effect!

P.S. I had originally pinned this idea from a different website. It wasn't until I was putting this post together that I realized that it was just a "hey, look at all these fabulous ideas we found but didn't actually do ourselves " kind of website. That kind of annoys me, even if they do give credit to the original post. So, I deleted that pin and instead pinned the original post.
