Pretty in Pink Treats 2

Pretty in Pink Treats 2
Inspired by Summer Brown

1 stick of butter
6 cups of mini marshmallows
6 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal
2 packages of white melting chocolate (also can be called almond bark)
1 jar of pink sparkling sugar (found locally at HEB)
Wax Paper

Melt the butter, add in the mini marshmallows and stir until melted. Stir in the Rice Krispies Cereal until combined. Pour into a 9x13 inch pan. Spray your hands with cooking spray, and mash the mixture into the pan until it is compact. This will help when it comes time to cut them.

Allow them to cool - I left mine over night. Cut into small squares. Line your counter top with wax paper.

Melt 1 package of the white melting chocolate in the microwave. I did 1 1/2 minutes at first, and then 30 second incriments until completely smooth. Dip each treat square into the melted chocolate and lay out on wax paper. After each treat is dipped and placed on the wax paper - I sprinkled it with the sparkling sugar. You want to do this while the chocolate is still warm so that the sugar will stick to the chocolate.

I made these for my friend Natalie in honor of her new baby, Addison... but you can make them for any occasion. At our HEB they had the sparkling sugar in: orange, yellow, blue, green, purple, clear, red, pink, and a rainbow mixture. You could also use a raw sugar form, that might give you a brownish color as well - and they might have had that too.

So with that color pallet - you could make these for sporting events and a whole host of holidays. You probably could find sparkling sugar in other stores in an even wider selection of colors and shades.
