Summer Snacks

Summertime needs summer snacks. That was the inspiration behind this marshmallow treat pops. I saw a Rice Krispy pop in the shape of a flip-flop at the store and it inspired me.


Rice Pops

There are many shapes you can make with rice Krispy treats. I was thinking many things like a seashell, beach ball, even maybe a dolphin. For my rice pops, I decided simple and fun: watermelon.

When I watch shows like the Cake Boss, you see them sculpting these figures out of Rice Krispie treats. The marshmallow rice cereal treats are perfect to mold into shape and put them on a stick. All you need besides a few ingredients is just your creative imagination.

Fun kid recipe

I wanted to make this a fun kid recipe. So how can I make Rice Krispie Treats and turn them into Watermelon Rice Krispy Pops? One answer is I need to tint the actual rice Krispies red for the red part of the watermelon. One tip is to use gel food coloring. The liquid food coloring seems to not work in the marshmallow.

Tinting the marshmallow was is easy, how to get marshmallow treat to be a watermelon? After a few trials and errors, the answer came, colored melted chocolate!


Rice Krispie treats variations

There are different rice krispie treats variations. This rice pop is one of them. Why? Because of how to make them with chocolate.


Chocolate Painting

I could not just dip these rice crispy treats in chocolate and be done. To make these marshmallow pops look like a watermelon, I have to do a bit of chocolate painting. It is still Chocolate dipped rice crispy treats, but it also a chocolate art project as well.

To give the Rice Krispy pops that watermelon look, I took a little bit of melted green chocolate and painted the border of where the red meets the green on a watermelon. Once I had that I would carefully dip the ends and bottom in chocolate up to that line.

Then again smooth out with chocolate paint the border and where I dipped with the paintbrush so it all in one. Sounds complicated but the truth is it very easy. Then I used melted chocolate that was black in a piping bag to make the seeds. Viola, you have Watermelon Rice Krispy Pops!
