Rice Krispies Treats Dipping Pops!

 

by contributor Lisa Thiele

Today’s treat is a childhood favorite: rice krispies treats ‐ with an upgrade!  Think “dipping,” from chocolate sprinkles, to crushed Oreos, to mini (multicolored) chocolate chips. The options are endless, really. Plus, you can {easily} make these without breaking the bank. Not bad, right?
This is a fun, hands‐on activity to do with the kids. Okay, and adults. I mean, who doesn’t like rice krispies treats? If you’re throwing a birthday party for the little one, consider setting up a rice krispies treat dipping station, where the kids can make their own “krispies pop”. These can also make great parting favors

Rice Krispies Treat Recipe (adapted from back of the cereal box)

Ingredients
3 Tablespoons Butter
1 package (10oz or 40) regular marshmallows or 4 cups of miniature
marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
lollipop sticks ‐ optional
Directions:
In a large saucepan, on low heat, melt butter. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
Mix in Rice Krispies cereal and stir until well coated.
Once it’s cool enough to touch (5 minutes), use your {clean} hands, roll a small ball of the rice krispies mixture and set on a sheet of parchment paper. Continue until all the mixture is all gone.
For Rice Krispies on a stick, insert stick into the center and set aside for at least 30 minutes to finish cooling.
Decorating:
2 cups chocolate chips
Assortment of sprinkles & toppings – think crushed Oreos
Foam block
Place toppings in individual bowls. Set out for dipping.
Using a double broiler (or microwave), melt chocolate chips. Remove the chocolate
from the stove. Dip the tops of your rice krispies treats into the chocolate, hover
over the bowl until its no longer dripping. Either dip or sprinkle topping(s) of
choice.
Note: if the chocolate &/or the toppings are too thick and heavy, the lollipop stick may
go through the rice krispies treat balls.
Set decorated treats into a foam block or something that will keep them upright.
Have fun with it and be creative!

    Brilliant Lisa! How perfect, what a great activity and bit of yumminess!

    To keep your treats from falling off the stick, you can dip the tip of the stick in chocolate and insert it into the ball of rice krispies. Once the chocolate cools, the ball is pretty secure.

    Also, from personal experience- these should be eaten day of or the next day at the latest. They don't keep very well. But they are fun!

  4. Brilliant idea! Love this!

    Thanks so much for the inspiration and directions! I decided to make the rice krispie treat “balls” big enough to fit in a muffin pan, so that when they were dipped in chocolate and sprinkled, they looked like actual cupcakes. Perfect for my 4-year-old’s birthday party–she has a thing against cake (gasp!) but loves rice krispies. Again, thanks!

  16. These are so cute! They are heading into my holiday treat tins for sure!
