Servings: 12 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
cooling time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 Cups Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 1 bag Mini Marshmallows
  • ¼ Cup Butter
  • 1 Cup Red, White & Blue Candy Melts each
  • 3 Tbsp Shortening
  • 1 tbsp Red Sprinkles
  • 1 tbsp Blue Sprinkles
  • 1 tbsp White sprinkles

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.
  • In a large pan over medium heat melt butter and marshmallows until completely melted and smooth.
  • Remove from heat and add in Rice Krispies cereal, stir to evenly coat cereal.
  • Spread the cereal mixture evenly into the lined baking sheet and press gently. To press the mixture in without sticking, you can spread butter on your hands or use a piece of wax paper.
  • Allow the cereal mixture to cool completely.
  • Gently lift the cooled rice krispies treats out of the baking sheet and sit on a flat surface that you can safely cut on.
  • Cut the cereal treats in half down the middle and then down the center lengthwise. Cut each quarter into thirds creating rectangle pieces.
  • Trim the corners off of the rectangular pieces to create a popsicle shape.
  • Press a popsicle stick into the bottom of your popsicle shaped rice krispies treat. Repeat with all 12 pieces.
  • In a double boiler, or a heat safe bowl over a pot of simmering water, melt your candy melts. You want the chocolate to be smooth. If it is too thick you can add shortening, add it in a ½ tsp at a time until the consistency is creamy and smooth.
  • Lay wax or parchment paper flat on your counter and table.
  • Dip the top ¼ of each popsicle into your candy melts, you can also use a spoon or spatula to spread it on the area you’d like to cover.
  • Lay the dipped popsicle on your prepared surface to cool.
  • Repeat with each popsicle until they are all dipped. I dipped mine in all three colors but you can dip in one color and drizzle with the others, the choice is yours!
  • Place the remaining melted chocolate in a piping bag and cut off the tip, drizzle your popsicles with the chocolate.
  • Sprinkle with sprinkle while the chocolate is still soft.
  • Allow to cool completely.
  • Wrap individually with plastic wrap, or store in an airtight container until ready to serve.
