  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 41 large marshmallows
  • 3 cups rice cereal
  • Red gel food coloring
  • ½ cup purple candy melts
  • ½ cup yellow candy melts
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 7 colorful straws


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium-sized saucepan, melt your butter on medium heat. Add 20 of your marshmallows and mix until completely melted.
  • Remove marshmallows from heat and add 1-2 drops of red gel food coloring and stir (your marshmallow mixture should be a light pink). Add rice cereal and fold until cereal is well-coated with the marshmallows.
  • Slide down a marshmallow just 3 inches before the end of the straw. Next, grab a small handful of your cereal treats (while they’re still soft!) and mold it around the middle of your straw, so that it takes on a cylindrical shape. Top the straw off with two other marshmallows.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, microwave candy melts (keep colors separate) and coconut oil (1 tsp per ½ cup candy melt) in 30-second intervals. Keep some candy on the side… don’t melt just yet because you will need them.
  • Using a piping bag, drizzle the marshmallows with your candy melts and set on your lined baking sheet. Where there is space on the baking sheet, pipe out heart-shapes. Allow everything to set in the refrigerator.
  • Once the candy melts and the cereal treats are set, melt your remaining candy and use it to “glue” your candy hearts onto the cereal treat portion of the skewer. Serve to mom and enjoy!
