Fuzzy Rice Krispies Treat Chick Pops

Easter Rice Krispies Treat Chick Pops | HungryHappenings.com

It's hard for me to decide which is cuter, a bunny, a lamb, or a chick. Do you have a favorite?

All I know is that I love making treats at Easter because everything is so cheerful. 

I can't help but feel all warm and fuzzy inside when I see these Rice Krispies Treat Chick Pops. They may not be quite as adorable as a tiny little fluffy baby chick but are pretty sweet looking, nontheless.

Each of these candy coated rice krispie treats is covered in colored coconut then decorated with some candy eyes and orange candy coating. I am aware of the great number of coconut haters out there, and I have you covered.


Pink Fuzzy Slipper Cookies

You can grate yellow Candy Melts, using a cheese grater, to make flakes of yellow candy that can be used in place of the coconut like I did to make my Pink Fuzzy Slipper Cookies. If you want more detailed step-by-step instructions, be sure to check out my Pink Fuzzy Slipper Cookies tutorial. 

Easter Chicks Lollipops

Fuzzy Rice Krispie Treat Chick Pops

Ingredients:

sweetened flaked coconut
yellow liquid food coloring

Rice Krispies Treats
melted, yellow Candy Melts (or color white candy coating with yellow candy coloring)*
2 candy eyes per chick
melted, orange Candy Melts*

*For detailed melting instructions, see my Chocolate Making Tips page.

You'll need about 1 ounce of yellow candy melts, 1/2 ounce coconut, and 3 orange candy melts per .78 ounce rice krispies treat to make your chicks. 

Supplies:

lollipop sticks
paper straws
parchment paper lined baking sheets

Instructions:

Make yellow coconut - pour coconut into a zip top bag, break up any big lumps, add a few squirts of yellow food coloring, zip up bag, shake until evenly coated, pour into a shallow dish. 

How to coat rice krispie treat in candy melts

Dip the tip of a lollipop stick in some of the melted yellow candy coating. If using straws, slide the straw over the stick, pressing it up into the candy coating. This will help the two stick together. Then insert the candy coated tip of the stick into a Rice Krispies Treat.

Dip the cereal treat bars into the yellow candy coating. Lift the treat allowing the excess candy coating to drip off.

Coat treats with yellow coconut. Set on a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze for 5 minutes.

Easter candy recipe

Pour orange candy melts into a squeeze-it mold painter bottle, or in a small zip top bag with a tiny bit of the tip cut off. Pipe a beak and feet onto each chick. Pipe a dot onto the back of two candy eyes and add them above the beak.
