Valentine's Day Rice Krispies Pops

All things pink and red haven't just been at our craft table and in our printables, they are popping up in the kitchen too. Today I am sharing one of our favorite treats to make for Valentine's Day. They are festive and so easy to make them coordinate whatever event you are throwing! If you are really in a pinch for time, you could use store bought treats and just dip them in chocolate! 

You will need: 

  •  half a stick of butter 
  • 1 bag of marshmallows (10 or 16 OZ)
  • 1 box of Rice Krispies (If you use a 16 OZ bag of marshmallows, you might want a box and a little extra)
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • Popsicle sticks
  • white melting chocolate
  • Valentine's Day Sprinkles
 Melt the butter in the bottom of a large bowl. Pour the marshmallows on top. Microwave in 30 second intervals until the marshmallows are just melted. It is possible to scorch marshmallows so watch them closely. They are ready when they look mostly melted with a few visible lumps still left in them. Mix the marshmallows until smooth, adding the salt and vanilla. Add the box of cereal and mix until they are thoroughly covered.

Spray a 10x13 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Dump the mixture into the pan. Wet your hands and shake off the excess water. Press the mixture down into the pan. The moisture on your hands will keep the cereal from sticking to your hands. Allow the pan to cool completely.
 Cut the Rice Krispie treats into squares and put a popsicle stick through each one.
Melt the white chocolate in a bowl, 30 seconds at a time until the chocolate easily stirs smooth. Dip the bottom of each pop into the chocolate and then immediately dip them in sprinkles. Allow the pops to set on a sheet of wax paper. 
I love to wrap each pop in a cellophane bag and give them as Valentines. What is your favorite red treat?
