|Here's my Rice Crispie Treat Pops...with M & Ms|
Devin and Caitlin had their first anniversary this past week. They've been married 1 whole year. I made some rice crispy treat pops for them as they dropped by on their way home from St. Louis where Devin had a summer internship at Price Waterhouse.
|The newlyweds came by for dinner|
|I made ribs and yummy side dishes and peach crisp for dessert! Check|
out all my yummy recipes at The Weekday Chef, my other blog.
Caitlin had to stay behind in Utah and work at her PR job. How fair is that? NOT much fun for her. I'm glad they get a few weeks together before school starts up again. Devin has 2 semesters left to get his master's degree. Yee Hah! A college grad at last!
So anyway.....Here's how I made my cool crispie pops....
|Heat up 1/4 cup or 1/2 a stick of butter with a 10 oz. bag of marshmallows in|
a pan on the stove or in the microwave.
|Then when it is white and melty mix in 6 cups of Kelloggs Rice Crispies|
They had some cute pops using colorful Popsicle sticks. But I was out of them.
|I poured all but about 3 cups into a 9 x 9 buttered pan and topped with M & Ms...yum!|
|Then I melted 1/3 cup of white candy melt discs in the microwave for 1 minute|
|Then I buttered my hands and formed the rest into 4 balls. Then I dipped the ends of them into the melted white chocolate and sprinkled the colorful toppers on as well as some M & Ms.|
|The M and Ms kept sliding off the balls....It may have been the slippery butter! So|
I pressed them into the white candy melts before they hardened...NOT easy to do!
I didn't have any Popsicle sticks so I cut some BBQ skewers and curled some ribbons and tied them on.
|Then I poked the wooden skewers into those cute balls and here|
they are with their curly ribbons decorating them!
|Then I had to sit back and taste-test my treats.....they were yummo!|
|My little granddaughters dropped by and guess what treat they loved?|
|Here are my finished "Rice Crispy Treat Pops"|
So Megan and Marisa came over to swim today. Guess who got the last 2 POPS?
