Equipment

  • Sucker Sticks
  • Sucker Stand
  • Frosting Bag
  • Baking Sheet
  • Parchment Paper
  • Scissors
  • Tall Cup
  • Small Microwave-Safe Bowl
  • Rubber Spatula

Ingredients
  

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 16 oz mini marshmallows (divided)
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 12 Ounces vibrant green candy melts
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • large red heart sprinkles

Instructions
 

Rice Krispies Treats:

  • Prepare a 9-inch dish with parchment paper letting some paper overhang and set aside. In a large saucepan melt unsalted butter over medium/low heat.
  • Once butter is melted add in 8 oz of marshmallows. Stir constantly until marshmallows are melted. 
  • Remove saucepan from heat and add in all Rice Krispies cereal and all of the remaining mini marshmallows. Gently fold together until all cereal is coated.
  • Pour everything into your prepared dish and gently press into place until it's evenly spread throughout your dish.
  • Allow to set for about 1 hour then use the overhang parchment paper to pull your Rice Krispies out of the pan and slice to serve.

Icing:

  • Start by placing your sucker stand on a hard surface, such as a baking sheet. Then line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Next you want to place the candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook for 30 seconds at a stirring between. This could take up to 3 minutes until fully melted and smooth. Once melted add the coconut oil to the melted chocolate and stir.
  • Next prepare your sucker sticks by placing them into the chocolate about half an inch and then slip the sticks into the middle bottom of each Rice Krispie treat. Then you can place the Rice Krispie treats on the prepared baking sheet and chill for about 5 minutes.
  • Place the melted chocolate into a tall cup and dunk each treat about ⅔ of the way into the chocolate. Then remove from the cup. To make sure chocolate is even be sure to lightly tap the bare end of the stick on the counter.
  • Place in your sucker stand and chill for about 10 minutes or until hardened.
  • Next we are going add some design to our treats. To do this you want to place the remaining chocolate into a frosting bag and use the scissors to cut a small tip off the bag. Then lay the pops flat on the prepared tray and drizzle the chocolate over the top of each pop and immediately add a heart sprinkle to the upper-right corner of each treat.
  • Return the treats to the fridge to chill for another 5 minutes, or until hardened. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Tip: Be careful when inserting the sticks not to break or crush the Rice Krispie treat.
  • Tip: If your chocolate seems thick while dipping, add more coconut oil and reheat for a few seconds. This will help thin it out and make it easier for dipping.
  • Tip: Be sure to use a cup or dish wide enough to accommodate the size of the Rice Krispie treats. However, don’t make it so wide that your chocolate doesn’t go deep enough for dipping.
  • Tip: When drizzling, you want to partly go down both sides of the treat, but don’t go all the way down to the pan or you’ll end up with spikes out the side of your treats. 
  • Tip: If your chocolate drizzle dries too quickly for your heart to stick, simply add a bit of the leftover melted chocolate to the bag of each heart and then add it to the treat.
