Eat: Rice Krispy Snow Ball Pops
I made a quick batch of rice krispies squares, but instead of pouring it from the pot to the pan, I let it cool for about 7 minutes in the pot, sprayed my hands with cooking spray, and formed balls. I placed the balls in a glass (non-stick) baking pan, and then stuck a stick in each ball (see pic below).
In a glass measuring cup, I heated up some Wilton Melting Chocolates (according to the directions on the package), adding a little bit of vegetable oil at the end to make it smoother and better for dipping.
Then we gathered up all the sprinkles we had, and put each color in a separate bowl (easy for dipping). We also decided mini chocolate chips and coconut would be good for dipping too.
The kids would then a.) dip a pop into the chocolate, b.) dip into a variety of sprinkles/toppings, and c.) place in container to dry.

And to finish off the afternoon, I made a Rice Krispy snowman (using the cake pop stick down the middle to keep it standing). This was the kids favorite by far.
This would be a fun impromptu activity for a cold winter afternoon or a winter playdate :).
