Marshmallow Treat Pops

My son took these to his first bake sale at school and was the hit of the class. I wrapped the pops in clear plastic wrap, tied them with decorative ribbon and stuck the sticks into a piece of Styrofoam for an attractive display.—Linda Dyches, Round Rock, Texas

    Fun recipe to make with the kids. Safe for younger kids since there is not heat or oven. My kids love this and I had fun making them as well.

    Arrgh. I just finished making these to take to my daughter's church event. I should have known better than to use a recipe I had never tried.Some things you should know:-After making the cereal/marshmallow mixture, you will have to allow it to cool for a while before you can form it into balls. And you will have to heavily grease your hands. Often.-The popsicle sticks like to come out of the balls.-Do not try to dip the balls, then hang them upside to dry to get the bottoms to dry pretty. The cereal ball will fall apart and right off the stick. :(-I made 1.5x this recipe and barely had enough for 30.They do taste good! I may make it again, now that I know what not to do.
