Blogger’s Note: I’m so sad the battery of my camera wasn’t charged! So the above is from my cell phone. *sad face*
This weekend I made sushi rice krispy treat pops. My oldest told me she saw a classmate bring something similar to lunch. I figured, why not make them into pops so my kids can give to their friends! These were super easy to make.
- 6 cups rice krispy cereal
- 1 bag jet puffed large marshmallows
- 1/2 stick of butter
- Fruit by the Foot
- swedish fish
- lollipop sticks
Simple procedure: melt, mix, cut, decorate.
Melt: Melt the butter and marshmallows on low heat
Mix: Mix in rice krispy cereal and press into pan
Cut: Cut the treats into rectangles (I liked 1 1/2″ X 3 inches)
Decorate: Lay one swedish fish on top of the rice krispy treat. Wrap the whole thing with a segment of Fruit by the Foot. Insert the lollipop stick. Wrap the treat with a candy bag/twisty tie from the craft store.
My 7 year old did all of the decorating and I cut the Fruit by the Foot into strips. Very quick and easy. I tasted it after. Biting into the swedish fish makes it very cherry flavor dominant. However, a bit of just the rice krispy treat and the fruit by the foot was someone intoxicating. There is something about the sweet and tangy combo that made me inhale a few of these =)
