Rice Crispy Treat Pops

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
I looked on the rice crispy website for some creative things to do with rice crispy treats. I followed their recipe which is HERE at the Kelloggs website.
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?

Yeah, they were so funny! My older granddaughter said, "These are delicious!" So cute! They loved my little rice crispie treat pops.  I love them! :-D
