WHAT ARE RICE KRISPIE TREATS?

Rice krispie treats are primarily made of rice krispies cereal, melted butter and mini marshmallows. These Grinch 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 holiday parties or events.

Tip: homemade rice krispie treats work just as well as store bought ones but using premade squares cuts out some of the work. Find the homemade recipe at the bottom of this post!

Grinch Inspired Rice Krispie Treat Process

Directions:

1.  Unwrap the rice krispie treats and place a lollipop stick into each one.

2.  In a medium bowl, melt the chocolate wafers in the microwave at 15 second intervals, stirring in between until the chocolate is completely smooth. Dip half of the rice krispie square into the chocolate.

3. Place the treats on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

4.  Add candy to the melted chocolate before it cools – I like to have it ready in small bowls. Press a red candy heart into the chocolate so that it really sticks. Spread the Christmas sprinkles overtop.

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

TIPS FOR MAKING THESE GRINCH 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.
