It's Spring break around here, which means my house seems to have a revolving door of kids, both little ones and bigger ones and so I've been busy coming up with lots of fun treats to feed everyone.
These Spring Flower Marshmallow Crispy Treats are a big hit with the little ones.
- 1 box Post Fruity Pebbles
- 1 pkg mini marshmallows
- 1/4 cup butter
- White chocolate chips
- Flower cookie cutter
- Lollipop sticks (use the size of your cookie cutter as a guage as to the length of stick, larger cutters you'll want a longer stick, smaller cutters a smaller stick)
- Green Card stock
Follow the instructions on the Post website to make marshmallow crispy treats.
Note: Ensure that when you've pressed the mixture into a pan to cool that it is no thicker than the cookie cutter you plan on using otherwise you will have difficulty cutting out your shapes.
Using a cookie cutter, cut out your flower shapes. Place them on wax paper and refrigerate. The firmer they are, the easier they are to dip into the melted chocolate without falling apart.
Dip the bottom of the flower in melted white chocolate. Also dip the end of the lollipop stick in the white chocolate too before inserting it into the base of the flower. Refrigerate until the chocolate has hardened.
While you are waiting for your marshmallow crispy treat flowers to set cut leaves out of green card stock. I had a leaf cutter on hand, but you can just put your kids to work for this and have them cut leaves out by hand. Glue the leaves to the lollipop stick.
Depending on the size of your cookie cutter you can probably get 6-8 flowers out of this recipe.
Post Cereal (including Fruity Pebbles) are on sale at Walgreens for $1.99 until April 5 (while supplies last). Go buy a couple of boxes and make these fun spring flower treats for the kids.
