Valentine Heart Cereal Treats

I usually make rice krispy treats, but when I found these heart shaped Quaker Whole Hearts cereal in my supermarket I had to try making valentine treats with them.   This version is very tasty ~ with a flavorful mix of peanut butter, marshmallows, chocolate candys and an oat cereal (the oat cereal part is the good for you part!)  When I stirred my chocolate candys in they melted a bit and broke up, thus you don't see clean, pretty colored M and M's ~ but that's OK they were still a hit. 

3 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 package miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
5 cups Quaker Whole Hearts Cereal
1 cup Valentine M and M candies
Line a 9 X 13" pan with parchment paper and spray with baking spray.
Place butter and marshmallows in a large microwave safe bowl.  Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes or until melted.  Stir in peanut butter until blended.  Add the cereal and the candies and mix.  Spoon into prepared pan, and flatten down evenly.  Cool, then cut into heart shapes  with a cookie cutter, or slice into squares.
