These Spring Rice Krispies Treats Pops are a fun and easy Spring treat!
Life has really gotten the best of me lately. Although I realize I often don’t have enough hours in a day to do everything I want or need to do, I still try … and I have successfully managed to drain myself. Why is it as moms, we feel like we have this expectation to be able to do everything – and then do some more?!
Stress puts me in a funky place and I don’t like who I am when I don’t have moments to just relax. As parents, we give so much of our time and energy to our family that we often forget to take time for ourselves. Since I know a few other moms in the neighborhood who are in a similar boat, I thought it would be fun to make a little Spring treat to give them a mood boost …. I mean, who couldn’t use a yummy feel-good treat?!
I love Rice Krispies Treats and it’s not something I treat myself to very often. I wanted to make a fun little “pop” with some Spring bling …. I had to make a stop at my local Walmart for all of the ingredients! To save myself time, I bought the pre-packaged Rice Krispie Treats – you can find them on the cereal aisle, near the granola bars and toaster pastries.

- 8 long lollipop sticks
- free printable (included)
- 1 box of Rice Krispies Treats (8 pack), unwrapped
- 2 tbsp. peanut butter
- 1 cup Jet-Puffed Mini Marshmallows
- 1 cup white candy melts
- confetti sprinkles
- Spring colored M&M’s Milk Chocolate candies
1. Lay out a piece of waxed paper long enough to hold all of the Rice Krispies Treats without touching. Place one lollipop stick in each Rice Krispies Treat and set on the waxed paper.
2. In a small saucepan, heat the peanut butter and marshmallows over low heat until melted, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat. Using a spatula, coat the front face of each Rice Krispies Treat with the marshmallow mixture, returning to the waxed paper to cool.
3. In a small microwave-safe dish, melt the candy melts according to package directions. Using a pastry brush or spoon, coat the front of the marshmallow mixture on each Rice Krispies treat, allowing excess to run over the sides. Immediately top with confetti sprinkles and M&M’s pieces. Allow to set.
4. Meanwhile, cut out circles from the free printable. Punch a hole at the top and bottom of the circles for the stick to go through.
5. Once the Spring Rice Krispies Treats Pops have set, slide the printable circles onto the stick. Tie a small bow just over the circles. Serve!
