Rice Krispy Cupcakes and Simple Marshmallow Treats

My Kiki turned four yesterday! We were going to our moms group on her actual birthday and we wanted to bring a treat to share that we know everyone would be able to eat! Most of the children in the group are younger so I wanted the treat to be small, cute, and Gluten & PB Free!
The solution I came up with was SOOOO simple! 
They only take about 15 minutes to make AND that's with a child helper!
Here is what you will need:
  • 3 Tablespoons of butter(or substitute)
  • a package of marshmallows
  • 6 cups of Gluten Free Rice Krispys (you can use regular too!)
  • Candiquik (white melting chocolate)
  • Sprinkles 
  • Candy to make a "cherry" on top. You could use jelly beans, sixlets, gum balls, m&m's, etc.
  • Mini cupcake paper wrappers
Just follow the instructions HERE to make original Rice Krispy Treats.
Then get your hands a little wet with cold water so the mix wont stick.
Form into small balls that fit your cupcake wrappers.
Melt your chocolate in the microwave. It's very important that you don't over cook the chocolate! Every 15 seconds, pull it out and stir till desired consistency.
Then simply dip the top in your chocolate. We added one drop of red food coloring to make it pink.

Then immediately add your sprinkles and "Cherry"! 
They will stay good for a few days covered on your counter but best served that day or the next!
Another SIMPLE treat we made to share with other friends were these cute marshmallow pops!
Same idea as the rice krispy treats but just with a marshmallow on a cake pop stick!

These literally take at the most five minutes to make! You just need a piece of foam to stick the sticks in to let the chocolate dry!
Here is our Halloween version! 
My kids LOVE Candy Corn!!!!!
You could also leave out the stick and just put the decorated marshmallow into a small cupcake wrapper for a different look!

By the way, I JUST started a Facebook Page for my blog! I would LOVE it if you would support me by "liking" my page!!!!
