My pink and gold rice krispie treat pops have been such a big hit on Pinterest and were soooo easy to do, that I decided to make a Frozen rendition for our Frozen/Housewarming/Stella & Dot party we had this weekend! These were a humungous hit with kiddies and parents alike! Why trouble yourself with baking and icing cupcakes when you can melt, stir, cut, dip and sprinkle instead–without ever touching an oven! Find the recipe and tips at the end of the post! Check back throughout the week as I post more of the crafts I did for this Frozen party!
I bought these cute popcorn holders online (but I’ve seen them at Hobby Lobby), stuck some sparkly snowflakes on the front and filled them with a bag of Boom Chicka Pop already popped popcorn! Since the kids were going to be making crafts and watching the movie I wanted to keep the snacks simple and easy for the kids to eat unassisted! For the “cake stand” I used a clear plastic serving tray from Dollar Tree and two glass candle holders I had leftover. I attached them to the plate with Glue Dots! Brrrr, very chilly looking!
FROZEN RICE KRISPIE POPS by Kristen of My Momma Told Me
- 6 cups Rice Krispies
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 bag large marshmallows
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- pink, purple and blue sugar crystals (or colors of your choice)
- 1 tray CandiQuick in white chocolate
- small pearl sprinkles (optional)
- long lollipop sticks
- 9 x 13 glass baking dish
- cooking spray
- plastic wrap
- wax paper
- Prep your glass baking dish by spraying well with cooking spray. In a large saucepan or pot melt your butter and marshmallows over low heat. Once fully melted remove from heat and add vanilla extract. Stir in 6 cups rice cereal and stir well. Sprinkle about 3 tbsps of your sugar crystals into the mixture and stir well. Use a sheet of plastic wrap to press the rice krispies mixture down into the glass baking dish. Sprinkle the krispies with more sugar crystals (for additional color) and allow to cool for at least 1 hour.
- Spray a sharp knife with cooking spray and cut the edges of your krispie treats so that all sides will be flat (not curved like the contours of the baking dish). Then cut your krispies into 16 equal-sized bars. Prep your CandiQuick white chocolate by microwaving as recommended on packaging. One by one, pierce the top of your bar with a lollipop stick (go down about 1/2 inch) and dip the bottom into the melted CandiQuick.
- Using the empty baking dish, sprinkle the chocolate-dipped bottoms of your pops with the small pear sprinkles (to look like falling snow) and allow to cool and harden on a sheet of wax paper.
- Tie your favorite frozen-colored ribbon to the tops of the pop sticks. Serve. Garner compliments!
Here’s a better view of the pink, blue and purple sugar crystal sprinkles. I’m tired of everything Frozen just being blue! I also loved adding the small pearl sprinkles to the white chocolate–it reminds me of falling snow!
Helpful hint: Sometimes I would get too much chocolate on the pops and it helped to let them sit on the wax paper a sec and then lift them up and re-place them to cool.
I hope you make and love these Frozen Rice Krispie Pops as much as we did!
