Stars On A Stick

Seriously.  I have an obsession.  I can not seem get enough Red, White, and Blue crammed into this festive week.  I’m dressing my family in it, I’m creating food in it,… Heck, I’m dreaming in it!  Red, White, and Blue makes me happy.  Food makes me happy.  Put them together and here is what we’ve got. rice crispie Stars On A StickYou can never go wrong with Rice Krispy Treats.  Add a sucker stick, and you have got one perfect treat.   EVERY age loves this dessert and the creative possibilities are endless.rice crispie Stars On A Stick To create these patriotic stars, simply make a batch of Rice Krispy Treats.  Use a star cookie cutter to shape.  Stick a sucker or popsicle stick in the center.  Now for the fun part,…grab SPRINKLES!  Using the straight edge of a piece of paper, create straight lines on the treats.  Spread a dab of honey on that area so the sprinkles stick and sprinkle away.rice crispie Stars On A StickWouldn’t these make the perfect patriotic ‘sucker bouquet’?

      Yum!!! Those are going to make a showing this weekend. They may not be as nice as yours, but I have had a hankering for rice-crispy treats for a while now. This looks like a great excuse to make a few.

        Shelley says:
        I used a star cookie cutter and then used honey to apply the sprinkles. :) Hope that helps.

      I would suggest making the treats traditionally in a pan, "ice" with white candy melts, quickly add the red and blue sprinkles in stripes (with white showing,) then cut with star shapes and add stick.

      Thank you so much for featuring these! You totally inspired me to make them as Fairy wands for my daughter's Fairy party! They were such a hit, and a total lifesaver as I needed more treats that were dairy-free! I blogged about them here: Thanks again!
