Thanksgiving Dessert: Rice Krispie Turkey Pops

This week Kellogg's was kind enough to email me their Thanksgiving Recipes.  Thank you Kellogg's.

In this informative email, they had a recipe to make Turkey Pops.  They are certain to please young palates everywhere.

The Kellogg's recipe used melted chocolate to coat the krispie, I used chocolate frosting.  Chocolate frosting is quicker and more "user friendly".  I also used the candy corn tips for eyes rather than purchase any small white candies.

For Thanksgiving I will go the "dipped in chocolate route", but for this example I felt the need to keep everything as simple as possible.

Rice Krispie Turkey Pops
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
  • - or -
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups rice krispie cereal (a shout out to Kelloggs for the great recipe) 
  • 1 container chocolate frosting
  • 1 1/3 cups candy corn
  • 24 lollipop sticks or wooden ice cream sticks 

Directions

1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

2. Add rice krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.

3.  Using two butter coated sandwich bags, shape mixture into balls slightly larger than golf balls.
4.  Gently cut white off of two candy corns for eyes, set aside.

5.  With chocolate frosting, coat the top half of the krispie ball.  Add 4-5 candy corns (pressing top of candy corn down into ball)  along top to create feathers.  Add eyes.

6.  Press candy corn into center for nose.
7.  If desired, insert Popsicle stick.

Arrange pops in a glass for easy transportation, and enjoy!

  1. I was very interested to see that you tried the icing - I was going for a quick version and wanted to try that too - I will use the melted chocolate sometime also-thanks for the option idea
