I always seem to over buy and I had all these ingredients left over from the Holidays.  I enjoyed making the snowmen so much, I wanted to try some hearts minus the lolly stick.  These were much easier to make because I didn’t have to worry so much about the stick staying in or dipping the entire snowman front and back in the melted candy coating.  I cut the left over pieces into chunks and dipped in the chocolate candy coating as well for a bite-sized treat!  If mint isn’t your thing then check out Lori’s rice krispie treats with craisins.
