These St. Patrick’s Rice Krispie treats were a hit at daycare this week. The idea came from none other than Pintrest.
I made the regular recipe for Rice Krispie Bars. I put them in a deep cake pan, but maybe should have made a double batch to get the thicker bars like shown in the Pintrest picture. These turned out nice, too.
I bought some cake pop sticks at Wal-Mart. I punched out squares from green cardstock and stamped on them. I punched a hole at the top and bottom middle of the square. I then put the paper on the stick by threading the stick through the holes. I guess this was the kids’ favorite part of the treat.
I pushed a stick into each cut Rice Krispie square. Then I dipped it in chocolate (light cocoa candy melts). I just dipped the bottom and sides in the chocolate.
I immediately shook green sprinkles over the melted chocolate. First, I was going to dip the bar into the sprinkles, but then thought that would coat them too much. It worked better to just shake the sprinkles on. I set them on waxed paper in a cake pan for easy transport to daycare.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!
