Rice Krispie Treat Pops are a fun and simple treat that everyone can enjoy! Set up a buffet and let the kids go to town decorating their own. Make it a Pops Party!
We are in the midst of PRIME dessert season, friends.
This is basically my Super Bowl. It’s as big as it gets. It’s my moment to shine. Teachers, neighbors, friends…even my own children. No one can hide from the sweet treats that I’m churning out of my cozy kitchen.
“What do you MEAN you’re stuffed? TAKE A GOODIE PLATE, are you an ALIEN???”
Just an FYI, “I’m stuffed” is for quitters. More dessert is never a choice. It’s a CHALLENGE.
With the amount of time I spend in the kitchen, it’s a foregone conclusion that Lucy is pretty well-versed in sugar slinging. She loves to roll up her sleeves and get her hands dirty, and as much as I love to let her…I have to choose our projects wisely. At three years old, she has enough patience to fill a thimble. A thimble for ants.
So instead of making sugar cookie dough, rolling it out, baking them…waiting on them to cool…and THEN decorating them, we decided to go to town on some Rice Krispies Treats!
The Rice Krispies Treats recipe only requires THREE ingredients, are NO BAKE, and are ready to go in almost no time. You can’t go wrong with that.
If that little face doesn’t look excited, then I don’t know what does.
To start off, we whipped up a quick batch of classic Rice Krispies Treats. After they cooled (if you’ve got impatient littles like my Goose, pop them in the fridge for a quick bit), I dipped wooden sticks in a bit of melted almond bark and inserted them in the cut-up treats and waited until the sticks were firmly in place.
I then let Lucy dip the Rice Krispies Treat Pops in the almond bark…
…set them on a plate lined with wax paper…
…and decorate them with sprinkles or candies before the almond bark hardened.
Lucy and I had SO much fun and she was able to decorate them all herself! It’s such an easy project and a really fun way to include the kiddos. We all ate the treats later and told her what a great job she did on them.
Of course, Lucy had to test a few for quality control. She set aside a couple of undecorated ones…you can’t beat a classic!
I hope you enjoy making these as much as we did — invite some friends over and make it a party.
