Rice Krispies Treat on a Stick

With grandchildren coming and going I like to have fun little treats on hand, or to make with them. My granddaughter and I made these using a silicone brownie pop mold. To serve a group of children poke sticks into Styrofoam and pour mini coloured marshmallows all over the base to cover the Styrofoam. If you need to take a treat to your child's class this one works well as there is little mess. If you don't have a mold, just roll Rice Krispies into balls, dip into sprinkles and add the stick. Cool 'sticks up' on parchment paper.

Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 250 gram package regular marshmallows
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies
Method:
  1. In a large sauce pan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted.
  2. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Stir in Rice Krispies.
  3. Lightly spay mold with cooking spray.
  4. Add candy sprinkles to the bottom of each cup.
  5. Fill cups with warm Rice Krispies mixture.
  6. Stick a sucker stick into the middle of each treat.
  7. Place in fridge to chill. Remove from mold and store in an air tight container in the fridge or freezer.

  2. Cute! I like the sprinkles. For Easter my mom used to shape Rice Crispy Treats into nests and then put in little candy eggs. I tried it a couple years ago and made little mini nests by using cupcake pans to help shape them. So much fun what all you can do with Rice Crispies!

  5. Kathy - these are so sweet. I took a sneak peek at your draft last week and bought all the ingredients for them but didn't have time to make them. They're on my list for the next time the grandkids come over.
