A festive sweet treat for any occasion that tastes as good as looks.

Captain Crunch Krispie Treats on plate

I was inspired to make these Krispie Treats by a fellow food blogger…

One of my favorite pictures of a recipe is of Trix Krispies made by Kim at Cravings of a Lunatic.

The pictures of Kim’s Trix Krispies are so pretty and look downright magical.

It was such a good idea to use a colorful cereal to make Krispie Treats that I just had to make some myself.

 

The two cereals that just happened to jump right off the shelf and into my grocery cart were Captain Crunch and Froot Loops.

These Krispie Treats are delicious made into the traditional squares but here’s an idea….

Captain Crunch Krispie Lollipop

…try making them into Krispie Treat Pops dipped in candy toppings.

The directions on how to do this are below.

Fun to make and fun to eat too.

Serving Options:

After cutting the krispies into squares they’re ready to serve.

Here are more serving options.

Candy Sprinkles in bowl

Add Candy Sprinkle Toppings – for added color, top the squares with candy sprinkles; put the candy sprinkles in a small shallow bowl, lay one krispie square at a time in the candy sprinkles and press down slightly so that the candies will stick to the top.

This adds even more fun color and another layer of deliciousness to the krispie.
