food (food) | holiday treats

It's that time of year to eat and be merry.  I'm not a baker, but I do like the idea of bringing homemade treats to holiday parties.  So my hate for baking usually takes a back seat this time of year and I try to channel my inner Martha Stewart.  This past weekend we went to a friend's holiday party and knowing that cake pops are so popular right now I wanted to create something similar but not identical.  That's how I came up with Rice Krispies treat pops.  It's dummy proof, fun and requires a minimal amount of actual "baking".

Using the traditional Rice Krispies treat recipe, I formed little balls before they cooled and stuck lollipop sticks into each one as they were cooling down.

When they finally cooled down I dipped each one in chocolate and topped them off with crushed candy canes.  An easy treat to make for those who are anti-bakers like me. :)

Yum! Have you ever tried cake pops? There's a bit of baking involved, but all from a mix. And they're adorable: http://www.bakerella.com/category/pops-bites/cake-pops/
