Super Simple Christmas Rice Crispy Pops
I’m so excited to talk about this one. My 11 yr old Luke and I made these for his school Christmas party and we had a blast! It took a little bit to teach him to use an icing pipe (aka.. a ziplock bag) but once he got the hang of it, he was a decorating machine! Check out how to make these cute Simple Christmas Rice Crispy Pops below!
What you will need
- Make 1 or 2 batches of rice crispy treats following this recipe.
- White chocolate and regular chocolate almond bark
- Food coloring either liquid or gel (this is what I use)
- Mini and regular M&M’s
- Candy eyeballs found in a craft store or located on the cake decorating isle at Walmart.
- Candy sprinkles of your choice
- Wooden Popsicle Sticks to make it easier to hold
- Oil in case the chocolate gets dry. vegetable, coconut, olive oil, or almond (I used almond oil)
- Knife and cutting board
- Microwave-safe bowl
- Ziplock baggies
- Mixing bowl and spatula
- Wax paper
- Sheet pan or pizza pan to let chocolate creations cool
Let’s get started on this!
First, you will need to chop several cubes of chocolate. I started with white chocolate to make my snowmen first. Grab your knife, cutting board, and several cubes of chocolate. Carefully cut your chocolate into smaller chunks and place in a microwave-safe bowl. See picture below.
You will need to microwave your chocolate for about 20 seconds the first time then stir. The closer you get to the melted consistency decrease the amount of time you heat your chocolate. Don’t forget to stir!
Over cooking will lead to burning your chocolate. It could actually be burnt or overheating could dry your chocolate out which can easily be fixed by adding in some oil (I used almond oil) a tsp at a time and stir. Your chocolate should go back to the melted heaven consistency that we all love.
Once you have your chocolate melted open a sandwich ziplock bag and roll down the sides at least one good turn. Spoon in some chocolate, zip the top while trying to get as much air out as possible.
Now twist your bag trying to contain the chocolate into one corner like above. Take your scissors and clip a very SMALL piece of the point to pipe your chocolate through. I start with a small cut the make a slightly bigger cut until I have the right amount of yumminess coming out.
Snowman time!! To make these cuties you will need a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Quickly using your warm chocolate pipe 3 circles any size you want making sure they will fit on your rice crispy treat. Now just fill in the circles with chocolate and you have a snowman. Make extra snowman in case they break when coming off the wax paper.
See.. done! So easy! Now you will need to let them set and cool down hardening the chocolate again. To do this quickly I pop them into the freezer. 🙂 They will be done in no time!
To remove your snowman (and trees below) just carefully peel off the wax paper. If they break its ok! Just add a little more white or maybe a scarf to your snowmen when you attach them to the rice crispy. Decorate your snowman any way you want with button M&M’s, sprinkles or more chocolate.
Trees, trees, trees!
To make these Christmas trees take your white chocolate and melt it the same as for the snowmen. Add in green food coloring until you reach your desired color. Top with M&M’s or sprinkles while they are still warm.
Notice the top right tree? It’s a great example of dry chocolate so be sure to add in some oil as you mix in your green.
SNOWMEN! Simple Christmas Rice Crispy Pops
You have reached my FAVORITE Simple Christmas Rice Crispy Pops. I loved these big face snowmen the most.
Don’t fret! It’s super simple to make these too. Just pipe white chocolate for the face, yellow chocolate for the nose, regular chocolate almond bark for the mouth and candy eyes that you can find in a craft store or on your cake decorating isle at Walmart.
The reindeer are just as easy as the snowmen above. To make these melt regular chocolate and pipe antlers right onto your rice crispy. Dot a mouth and add on eye balls and a nose by placing a chocolate dot right under the candy to secure it into place. Easy Peasy!
