Directions

  1. Grease cookie sheet and insides of two or more heart-shaped cookie cutters 4 inches long and 2 inches deep. Place cutters on cookie sheet, set aside.
  2. In large bowl, combine cereal, chocolate chips, marshmallows, candied cherries and pecans, set aside.
  3. In small heavy saucepan over very low heat, stir white chocolate and shortening until melted and smooth. Remove from heat, cool slightly. Pour chocolate mixture over mixture in bowl, stir gently to coat completely.
  4. Using greased fingers, press about 2/3 cup mixture firmly and evenly into each prepared cutter on cookie sheet to thickness of up to 3/4 inch. Refrigerate 30 minutes until firm. Depending on number of molds available, you may have to work in batches. Keep unused mixture at room temperature between batches.
  5. To unmold: Run wide metal spatula under cutters to loosen from cookie sheet. Using fingers, gently push each sweetheart free of the cutter.

This turned out surprisingly good even though it is truly geared to someone with a big sweet tooth. I thought the white chocolate would be too much but well-blended, it's not. Had to substitute for the candied cherries half the amount of dried, sweetened cranberries and chunks of semi-sweet chocolate for the morsels. I was a little unsure of the directions, so did what I've done with Rice Krispy Treats - I placed the mixture in a well-oiled one-cup funnel to make "kisses". It makes exactly four. They hardened at room temperature at which point I could wrap them in cellophane and tie with a ribbon. I may try this recipe with all the ingredients except the white chocolate and according to the recipe for Rice Krispy Treats but I will certainly make this one again as it is written! The only trouble I had was with melting the white chocolate. I used the microwave and perhaps this was the problem? Even though the chocolate got a little dry and wouldn't pour, I could mix it into the other ingredients by hand.
