What are Rice Krispie Treats?

Rice krispie treats are primarily made of rice krispies cereal, melted butter and mini marshmallows. These festive pops are made even easier by simply using pre made cereal treats, dipping them in chocolate and then covering them in candy and sprinkles.

These holiday treats are so much fun for kids of all ages to make and take to summer picnics at the park.

This easy independence day treat can be personalized with a wide variety of festive ingredients! Try adding: a pretzel stick for a handle, red food coloring to the chocolate, marshmallow fluff, white chocolate chips, a candy cane, red candy melts instead of white or other kinds of holiday sprinkles!

4.  Add candy to the melted chocolate before it cools – I like to have it ready in small bowls. Press the M&Ms into the chocolate so that they really “stick”. Spread the festive sprinkles overtop.

5.  Place the crispy treats in the fridge and allow the chocolate to harden completely before serving.

Tips for making these summer treats:

  • Use candy melts for best results, the wafer chocolate melts the best. Add one teaspoon of coconut oil to other chocolate to help it melt and pour better.
  • Lay the chocolate covered treat on a parchment lined baking sheet for easy moving and transporting before the chocolate has hardened.
  • Place the chocolate in the fridge or freezer to completely cool before serving.

  • Store these yummy treats in a large freezer bag or airtight container for up to three months at room temperature. They can also be stored in the fridge to prevent the chocolate from melting.
