Do you like the look of cake pops, but not the time it takes to make them? Here are several types of pops that would be fast and fun to make for your 4th of July get together. Kraft has Jumbo StarMallows in the stores right now that are only out for a limited time. It is super easy put the three colors on a lollipop stick or skewer. Marshmallow lovers would eat them right up. The USA pops are Oreos covered in red, white and blue candy melts. I have been looking for the plain Oreo mold, but all I have been able to find are the ones with extra shapes. It was not too difficult to dip these by hand, they are just not quite as smooth as an Oreo from the mold.
These colorful pops are made from packaged Rice Krispie Treats dipped in candy melts. They are decorated with Wilton Patriotic Stars and Sprinkles, and Sparkle Gel. I used a thicker lollipop stick for these pops because they are a bit heavier than the other pops.
A fun way to display the pops is to fill a container such as this Ikea bucket with colored candy. I found red hot tamales, and white chocolate gems on sale at Meijer. The candy helps keep the pops in place, and after they are gone, guests can help themselves to the candy.
The pops are all ready for the 4th! (Though I know they will disappear long before then)
