Krispie Pops

These little guys were fast, fun & yummy!




These are so easy! But they are a lot more fun when you have an adorable blonde two year old as your assistant. Check out this little Apron Gal:


This is my niece Emma! We made these together and it was so fun!

Ok, enough of her cuteness. On to the recipe:


First, you will need to have some lollipop sticks on hand. You can buy these at Michael's, party stores, Orson Gygi or on Amazon. These are only about $5.00 for anywhere from 50-100 and they are great to keep on hand for cake pops or other fun ideas! I used the really long ones but I would probably do more of a typical lollipop size next time like the 4 inch. These were still cute long and you could even make a Rice Krispie bouquet for someone! 


Ok back to the recipe:


Make your Rice Krispie treats according to Rice Krispie box recipe. After marshmallow/butter and Rice Krispies are mixed, leave the mixture in the bowl/pot. Then, instead of spreading these into a 9x13 pan, start rolling them into balls with your hands. 






I did try to use an ice cream scoop but found that it was more trouble and more time consuming so I just used my hands instead! 


Shape these into balls and then place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Immediately insert a lollipop stick into the center and make sure it is tight so the rice krispie ball doesn't fall off! 




Continue until all balls are made. Meanwhile, melt your chocolate with a little butter to keep it from burning. Dip the pops into the chocolate and then shake off excess chocolate. Decorate with sprinkles!




Place upside down in a piece of foam or anything else you can think of to keep the pops upright. 






Let set for at least 20 minutes then try to stop yourself from eating 2 or 3... or 4... haha




Next time I make these I want to drizzle them with white chocolate or mix in peanut butter with the chocolate....the possibilities are endless!
