Why on a stick? Cause I was trying to make it as CLEAN as possible for the kids. Do you know how hard it is to get marshmallow out of hair and fingers? Hard. This way the cleanup is minimal. Now the chocolate dipping, well, that’s a problem for adults…
rice krispy treats
mini chocolate chips or candy melts
Make your rice krispy treats according to the package. Instead of using a 9×13 pan, use a smaller one, like an 8×8. Pressing it into a smaller pan makes the treats more compact, and easier to place on a stick.
Once in the pan, cut them into squares, and using *ahem* clean hands, or wax paper, squeeze them a little to compact them a bit more. Then stick in the popsicle stick.
Now I just leave ‘em like this and roll them in sprinkles for the kids. If you want to go even further, then dip them in chocolate as well. Quite impressive. Little effort. Here’s how:
In a microwave safe dish, pour about 1-1/2 to 2 cups of mini chips and micro at 30 second intervals, stirring until melted. Dip your treats into the melted chocolate, then sprinkles and let set on a wire rack. Candy melts are better if you want a ‘hard candy shell’.
These can be really pretty if you do them for parties and tie them up with ribbon. Just make sure Godzilla doesn’t get his hands on them.
