1. Lightly brush heart-shaped pans with melted butter. Set aside. 2. Melt 12 tablespoons of butter in a large pot over medium heat. 3. Add marshmallows and stir continuously until melted. Remove from heat. 4. Combine cereals in a bowl; add cereal mixture to marshmallow-butter mixture. Stir until well combined. 5. Transfer mixture to pans.
