Valentine Rice Krispy Pops

I have a few more Valentine goodies and gifts to share with you this week and then I'm done. Promise! We have had a good time making, eating and giving away our goodies.

This weekend we made Valentine Rice Krispy Pops. I've had this recipe for a long time, but I don't remember where I got it. I'm guessing a magazine, but I'm not sure. These are so cute. It takes a regular Rice Krispy treat to the next level. They are very good for bake sales. They catch the attention of the kiddos and are usually one of the first things to go. These treats would also be great for a classroom treat at a child's party.

For our Rice Krispy pops, we dipped them in vanilla almond bark and sprinkled on some valentine sprinkles. We also tied ribbon on the sticks for a little more"cute."

Laci's ready to dig in!

Rice Krispy Pops
3 Tbsp. margarine or butter
1 (10 oz.) pkg. regular marshmallows or 4 c. minis
6 to 7 c. Rice Krispies cereal
12 wooden popsicle sticks(I used wooden dowels meant for cake decorating that I cut in half.)
1 1/2 c. semisweet or white chocolate( I used almond bark)
candy sprinkles

In a large sauce pan, melt margarine over low heat. Add marshmallows, stirring constantly until melted. Remove from heat and stir in cereal until it is well coated. Let mixture cool until it's warm, but comfortable to handle with your fingers. Lightly butter your hands, then shape the treats into 12 balls. Push a popsicle stick into each one. Set aside. Melt chocolate or almond bark. Dip treats into melted chocolate and sprinkle on candy sprinkles. Set treats on wax paper lined tray. Once chocolate had hardened, wrap treats in plastic and tie with ribbon or store in covered container.

We're on the same track...I just posted on my blog some heart-shaped rice krispie treats I made over the weekend! Although, you're right that these do take rice krispie treats to the next level! I'll have to try this out for next year!
