Great for kids but make extras for the adults because they will love them too. This was based on "Soft and Chewy Rice Krispies Treats" by wyojess with my thanks.
- 1⁄4 cup margarine (can be dairy-free)
- 16 ounces marshmallows
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄4 cup nonpareils (small size and mixed colors)
- 6 cups Rice Krispies (generic cereal is fine)
- I used the following: Wilton round cookie-pop tray, cookie-pop sticks, assorted color icing and metallic ties all of which can be found in the cake decorating section of a party store or craft store. Saran type wrap was used to wrap the pops.
- Spray cookie tray lightly with Pam.
- Melt margarine in heavy pan over medium heat.
- Add marshmallows and stir continuously until smooth.
- Add vanilla.
- Add nonpareils and stir.
- Turn heat off but leaving pot on burner add the cereal. and stir until evenly mixed.
- Put some in mold, add stick and put some more on top and with damp hands press lightly.
- Have fun decorating, let dry and over pop with plastic wrap and fasten with ties to secure the wrap. I put them in a basket filled with Styrofoam that I decorated.
We shaped these into valentines and used minature m&m's instead of the nonpareils. Definitely would make again for any occasion and shaping to the event.
