MARVEL CONVERSATION HEART TREATS
RECIPE BY JENN FUJIKAWA (@JUSTJENN)
2-½ inch heart-shaped cookie cutter
#7 pipe tip
#3 pipe tip
6 cups strawberry-flavored rice cereal
10 oz (40 regular-sized) marshmallows
2 tbsp butter
5 cups powdered sugar
6 tbsp warm water
3 tbsp meringue powder
pink food gel dye
purple food gel dye
yellow food gel dye
red food gel dye
Step One: Prep a 9x13 pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.
Step Two: In a large pot, melt butter and marshmallows over low heat. Stir until melted, then remove from the heat and add the strawberry rice cereal. Stir until well coated.
Step Three: Press mixture into the prepped pan using a buttered spatula or buttered parchment. Let cool completely.
Step Four: Use the heart cookie cutter to cut out shapes.
Step Five: In the bowl of an electric mixer, stir together the powdered sugar and the meringue powder. Slowly add the water until the icing is combined. Add a teaspoon of water if necessary, to get the right consistency.
Step Six: Take out ¼ cup of icing and place in a small bowl. Use the red food gel dye to color. Set aside.
Step Seven: Separate the remaining icing into three bowls, using food gel dye to color one bowl pink, the second one purple, and the third bowl yellow.
Step Eight: With a #7 tip and pink icing, pipe an outline onto the treats. Flood the heart with icing, then use a toothpick to clean up the edges. Let dry. Repeat on the remaining heart treats with the other icing colors.
Step Nine: Use a #3 tip and red icing to pipe words onto the hearts.
Step Ten: Once the icing has dried, they’re ready to serve!
