Rice Krispies Pops – Quick & Easy Treat for Parties, Easter Baskets and more!

Rice Krispie Pops

My girls’ school had a bake sale this morning and I volunteered to bring some goodies. However, this week turned out being a bit of a crazy week with various commitments and I needed to find something fast & easy to bring for the bake sale. I made some cake mix cookies with frosting and sprinkles (so easy – make sure to check out our different variations you can make). But I also wanted to make something that would be a big hit with the kids as they love anything on a stick these days. So, I decided to make our favorite Rice Krispie Pops in spring colors.

We have been making Rice Krispie pops for quite a few birthday parties over the years and I love that it’s a fun way to bring the theme colors of your party into your food options & kids always head straight for these as Rice Krispie treats are always a hit. Add some frosting, sprinkles & a stick and you’ve got a winner with the kiddos.

I thought these would be fun to make to put into Easter baskets for a fun little treat or bring it to an Easter get-together for a kid-friendly after-dinner treat!

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups of Rice Krispies cereal
  • 3 tbsp Butter
  • 1 pkg of regular Marshmallows (10 oz, about 40) or 4 cups of mini marshmallows
  • Candy Melts (you can also substitute candy bark, melted chocolate chips – basically any candy or chocolate coating you can melt)
  • Sprinkles
  • Lollipop sticks or paper straws

Directions::

Make Rice Krispies treats according to the directions.  Melt butter over low heat in a large saucepan. Add in the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add in Rice Krispies cereal slowly. Stir until well coated with marshmallow mixture. Spread into a 13x9x2 inch pan coated with cooking spray or place on a cookie sheet with wax paper. Cool. Cut into rectangles.

{I cheated this time and used pre-made Rice Krispies treats to save time since I had quite a few to make with a short amount of time}
Melted Candy Melts
Pour the desired amount of candy melts (or other melting chocolate) into a bowl.  Put it into the microwave & cook at 50% power for 1 minute at a time until the chocolate is melted & easy to stir.
Once your candy coating/chocolate is ready to stir, you can start dipping or applying to the rice krispies treats. You can either dip the rice krispies treat right into the bowl to coat it with the candy coating. Or I find it easier to just use a knife or spreader to put it on more evenly.
Rice Krispie Treats with Sprinkles
Add your sprinkles once you have coated the top part of the Rice Krispies treat. Stick a lollipop stick or straw into it to turn it into a pop!  So simple & easy!

To add them to an Easter basket or as a special treat in your kids lunches or for parties, just add a little bag & ribbon to tie it up cute. You could pass these out as party favors at a class party or kids birthday party or have them on display without the bag.
