Rice Pops Recipe
Turned my childrens favorite rice Krispy Treats into Rice Pops , with just a few extra things added. Have to say, those rice pops turned out really cute looking and with an extra hint of cherry flavour ,they tasted even better. Of course you can make these same rice pops with your favorite colors and flavours . I made some with chocolate rice krispies and added melted chocolate to the marshmallow mixture, those tasted the best!
Be sure you share your feedback, food picks and opinions, I always look forward to it.
Getting to the recipe and directions,hope you have fun making these rice pops and enjoy!
50-70 grams of butter
4 cups of miniature sized marshmallows
4 ½ cups of Rice Krispies cereal
A few drops of cherry extract (or any other to your taste, or just simple vanilla extract)
Pink food coloring (or at your preference )
1-2 oz melted chocolate
You will also need wooden skewers ,oil spray and rubber gloves
In a large saucepan melt butter and marshmallows until it turns into smooth mixture
Add food coloring and extract, quickly mix and add the marshmallows
Mix until combined and each rice is covered with that mixture
Transfer the saucepan in a larger pot filled with hot water ,the mixture hardens pretty quickly and it may be hard to work with it, so try to keep it warm at all times until done
Put on the rubber gloves, spray your palms with some oil for easy rolling
Using a large (or the size you like) ice cream scoop ,spoon the mixture and roll into perfect round shape
Set aside to harden for 5-10 minutes
Insert the skewers into the balls
Drizzle with melted chocolate and enjoy!
