Krispie Treat Pops

Pin It

Krispie treats are just classic, aren’t they?  I mean, everyone likes a plain old rice krispie treat.  Everyone but me, that is.  I really have to dress them up to make them interesting.

krispie treatWhen I was a kid, my mom made this Christmas advent calendar.  It was a felt Christmas tree with little pockets for treats.  My mom filled the pockets with rice krispie treats with little service coupons attached.  My siblings and I took turns choosing treats.  We always loved seeing what services my parents would give, usually things like “Dad will take you out for ice cream” or “Mom will make your bed.”

Of course, the treats were awesome on December 1st, but not so much on December 24th.  By then, they were hard as a brick bat (as my Mother-in-law would say) and you only had the coupon to look forward too.

Or throwing a krispie treat rock at your brother’s head.

Not that I would ever do that.  Just sayin’.

Maybe it was those dry and hard 3-week old squares that turned me off this classic dessert, or maybe it was the lack of chocolate involved.  {probably the chocolate!}  Either way, I’ll be spicing up my krispie treats.

Today, I decided to spice them up with sucker sticks.  And white chocolate.

I got a sweet deal on sucker sticks in the after-Christmas sale.  Is it weird to get excited about that?  I only spent a dollar on a package of 100 sticks. And therefore, I HAD to use them as quickly as possible.

I halved the classic rice krispie treat recipe and pressed it into a loaf pan for this treat.  I pushed the sucker sticks in right away, and once the treats were set, I cut them into cute little squares, and dipped them into almond bark.  I just love how cute and festive these look!  I think they would be so fun for a birthday party or holiday celebration.

And the real bonus about this whole thing is that there is no baking required!

  1. Gosh, I had these (but without the chocolate) for the first time in probably 10 years just a few days ago. We had bought some Rice Krispies for cookies, and had some left over, and decided to make these. Gotta try the chocolate next time – terrific idea. And I’ll make sure I eat them within 3 weeks. ;-) Good stuff – thanks.

  2. I love RKTreats like crazy. I mean, they are my thing! These are so cute!

  3. Maybe its the color you chose for the frosting, or maybe its the sprinkles… but these look fabulous! YUM!

  4. Yum… i like all your recipes and i wiil try this one :)

  1. [...] Before you go telling me how similar this is to Rice Krispie Treats, let me just say that popcorn is WAY better than krispie treats.  WAY better.  In fact, I believe I talked all about my feelings towards krispie treats, in this post about krispie treats. [...]
