Rice Krispie Treat Pops

Looking for an dessert that is easy to make, and is great for kids and adults?  Well look no further.  Rice Krispie Treat Pops are a great option if you are hosting a group and you want to serve something different on your dessert table.  I made these for a recent holiday party and all the adults loved them. Most of them haven't had a Rice Krispie Treats in years and having them dipped in chocolate only improves upon the classic dish! 

Beside being a new take on a childhood favorite, Rice Krispie Treats do not require baking.  Most of the time required to make these pops is waiting for the chocolate to set.  And you can definitely make these bars ahead of time, so all you have to do when you company arrives is pull them out of your refrigerator.  I will definitely be making different version of these for future holidays and parties.

Rice Krispie Treat Pops 
3 tablespoons butter 
4 cups mini marshmallows 
6 cups Rice Krispies 
16 ounces semi sweet chocolate or white chocolate 
red and green sprinkles 
12 lollipop sticks  

Lay wax paper or parchment paper in a 13x9 inch pan so that the edges are hanging over each side.  (You will want enough paper hanging over to pull the bars out later).  In a large saucepan melt butter over a low heat.  Add marshmallows and stir and melted.  Remove from heat.  Add Rice Krispies, stir until well coated.  Press the mixture evenly into the prepared pan leaving edges of the wax paper exposed.  Place pan in refrigerator to cool. 

Once cool, pull the bars out of the pan by lifting the parchment paper.  Place bars on a cutting board.  Using a pizza cutter or very sharp knife, cut the bars into 12 squares.  Insert the lollipop sticks into one side of the bars. 

Melt the chocolate chip in a double boiler.  Dip the tops of the bars in the melted chocolate, garnish with red and green sprinkles.   Place decorated pops in a glass or small vase in the refrigerator so that the bars will set upright.   Once chocolate is set the pops can be served!   Store in refrigerator.

Such a GREAT idea. I think I found a fun project for me and my little cousins to do.
