Eat Drink & Be Mary: Christmas Rice Krispie Pops

Christmas Rice Krispie Pops


It's here y'all.  The holiday season!  I'm just giddy for excitement to begin all the celebrating this year, and food.  Don't forget food.

Yesterday I shared my wish list, and today I'm starting to share my Christmas treat ideas for this year.  Eek!  Bring on all the jingle bells and fa la la la las...this girl is ready for red, green, gold and sprinkles everywhere!




First treat I'm sharing this year?  One that takes maybe a total of 10 minutes making and 5 minutes decorating...leaving more time for family and shopping for gifts.  #win


Christmas Rice Krispie Pops.  Nothing is better than a treat on a stick.  Seriously.  People love sweets that are easy to take on the go, portioned sized, and covered with sprinkles. 


And who's to blame them?  I mean look at these festive pops...



Christmas Rice Krispie Pops 

What you need:
6 cups of Rice Krispie cereal
1 bag of mini marshmallows
1 package of Candiquik
Treat Sticks
Parchment Paper
Sprinkles

What to do:
Making the Krispie Treats--
1. In a large pot, on medium heat melt the butter.  
2. Once the butter is melted, add the marshmallows.  Stir continuously until the marshmallows are melted completely.
*don't stop stirring, as the mixture will likely burn within seconds.  the marshmallows only take about a minute to melt.
3. Remove from heat and add in the Rice Krispie cereal, 2 cups at a time.  Mix well.
4. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper.  
5.  Pour rice krispies into the pan, and spread out.  Cover that with another sheet of parchment paper, and even out the mixture.
6. Let harden.



Making the POPS--
1. Cut the rice krispies into rectangles.

2. Section of rectangles in 2s, and place upside down.

3.  Melt the candiquik (or anychocolate candy melts) according to package, and spread on the back.

4. Dip the treat stick in melted chocolate, and then place onto the bottom rice krispie.

5. "Close" the rice krispie, creating the POP.




On to the Decorating -- 
1. After making the pops, chill them in the refrigerator to harden them back up in preparation for dipping in the melted chocolate.  approx. 10 minutes.

2. Dip pops halfway into the melted chocolate, and then sprinkle the Christmas themed sprinkles.  Let the chocolate harden on parchement/wax paper.  

3. ENJOY! 



The thing about my recipe for rice krispie POPS?  I use I Can't Believe It's Not Butter.  

The cool thing about the new I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® ... its made from real, simple ingredients.

But what does that really mean?   100% taste, 0% artificial preservatives – and is still unbelievably delicious!  And has 40% fewer calories and 70% less saturated fat than butter.  

Heading into the holiday season I'll take all the fewer calories I can get.
