a simple treat: rice krispie pops



My Ella Bella turned SEVEN years old this week. I'm amazed at how quickly she's growing up. She's certainly grown-up enough to make the big decisions in life, like what she wants for a classroom treat on her birthday.


Ella loves Rice Krispies treats. We found a huge box at Costco for like $7.99 with the instant rebate. I wanted to make them a little extra special, so with the help of my daughters-in-law, Ashlee and Tayler we made them into pops--with sprinkles. Because around here, sprinkles make everything an instant party. :)

INGREDIENTS:
Store bought Rice Krispies Treats
4 1/2" sucker sticks
Rainbow sprinkles
Parchment paper or wax paper
4 x 6 1/2" treat bags
Ribbon

DIRECTIONS:
  1. Insert the sticks in the end of the Rice Krispies Treats about 1 1/2". 
  2. Spread a thin layer of sprinkles on parchment paper, and lightly press one side of the RK Treat into it. (If you want to add more sprinkles, just find a different spot on the paper with more sprinkles and press again.)
  3. Add to a treat bag and tie with ribbon.
Seriously, so simple and so darling. I was afraid some of the boys might think the pink ribbon was too girly, but Ella assured me they would still eat the treat. Apparently, she was right, because she said the kids all thought these pops were tops. :)

  1. Awesome idea and even better I can purchase the RK instead of making them from scratch.
