Easy Rice Krispies Pops Recipe

Sharing is caring!

So this year is quickly coming to an end and I can’t believe the holiday will already be here very soon. One of my favorite things to do with the kids during their winter break, besides travel of course, is to make a few easy, delicious and festive treats.

Our whole family loves rice pops cereal and Rice Krispies pop treats, but I can live without how sticky and messy they are. We decided to compromise and create these easy Rice Krispies pops, which are basically delicious Rice Krispy treats on a stick.

They are very similar to the Rice Krispie cake pops recipe, if you have ever tried those.

Ingredients

Ingredients Rice Krispies Pops

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
  2. Add Rice Krispies cereal and stir until well coated.
  3. Using a buttered spatula or wax paper, evenly press the mixture into a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Let it cool and then cut into 2-inch x 3-inch bars.
  4. Melt the candy melts according to the package directions.
  5. Insert a cake pop stick into each Rice Krispies bar and then dip the top (or as much as you want) into the  melted candy.
  6. Set the Rice Krispies pops down on a tray lined with wax paper (for easier clean up), then immediately top with sprinkles. Repeat this until all of the pops are coated in candy and sprinkles. 
  7. Refrigerate for about an hour to let the candy harden a bit and then enjoy! You could also get some treat bags (like these) and wrap some pops up to give out for the holidays or put in a basket.

So the only question is what other cereal would you like to use besides Rice Krispies?

Notes

Can you use a different cereal other than Rice Krispies for this?

Yes, in fact I encourage you to be creative with this recipe and try any cereal you want (Fruity Pebbles, Cocoa Krispies, Honey Nut Cheerios, whatever). Change up the color of the candy melts, sprinkles and more!

For my gluten free friends, you can easily make a gluten free version simply by using Rice Krispies Gluten Free Cereal.
