Rice Krispie-Sicles

I volunteered to bring treats to a meeting with the theme "Fun Things to do in the Summer". My first choice was some fun " Corn Dog Cookies"  I saw on Munchkins Munchies blog, she is one talented lady! But time (and talent) was short so I went with something I could really do!
These 'cookies' are just a basic Rice Krispie Treat cut in 2x3 inch rectangles. I cut off the top corners, rounded the rice krispie treat a bit and added a Popsicle stick. I let the treats chill for a minute in the fridge. I then dipped them in white or milk chocolate, added some sprinkles. They were returned to the fridge for just a few minutes.
My sweet friend Nancy then tied cute bows around the sticks and arranged them in a watermelon half. It was a fun summer treat that you could create with the kids.
I found the basic idea on the Rice Krispie web site.

Rice Krispie-Sicles
Melt 4 tablespoons butter and one 10 oz package on marshmallows in microwave for 1-2 minutes until melted. Add 6 cups rice krispies and stir. Put in a buttered 9x13 inch pan. I wet my hand with cold water and gently press mixture in pan. Cool. Cut in 2x3 inch rectangles and form into Popsicle shape. Insert Popsicle stick.
Put treat on parchment paper and refrigerate--this will help in the dipping process. I used milk chocolate discs that can be found at craft stores or Orson Gygi's. These melt quickly and are very easy to work with. If using chocolate chips (white, milk or semi-sweet) melt gently in the microwave and add 1 tablespoon oil  to 2 cups of chips. Dip treats, add sprinkles and put back on parchment paper. Return to fridge--the chocolate should set quickly. Add bows if desired and arrange in a melon half. Or just put on a platter and enjoy.
This recipe made 18 treats.

I'm a big fan of sweets on a stick so it's no surprise that I think this idea is fabulous! No mess, great taste, and loads of whimsy!
