Very, very tasty and Valentine-y! I only made the 1-batch-size and was pleased with the number of slightly thinner treats made. As you suggested - great call - I stirred the multi-colored mini marshmallows in before adding the Rice Krispies and that worked well! I pressed mixture with my buttered fingers into the broiler pan bottom lined with buttered foil, and then pulled the sides of the foil in towards the middle to make a more compact, thicker brick. My mistake was to press a Sweatheart candy heart into each warm soon-to-be "square" without tasting the candy first. That brand of conversation heart is fruity and very hard.
I copied that crazy chart here because I found it interesting that there are so many variations on a very simple recipe. I ended up using 4oz butter, 10 oz regular marshmallows, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 2 cups colored fruity mini marshmallows, 6 cups of Rice Krispies and 1 box of Sweetheart Conversation Hearts. I'd leave the candy hearts off when I make the recipe again ;) Colleen
