Ingredients

  • 4 2/3 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 10 ounces marshmallows (6 cups mini or 40 regular-size)
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate morsels
  • yellow candy melts
  • assorted colors candy melts

Instructions

  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside. 
  • Spray a large bowl with cooking spray. Place the cereal in the bowl and set aside.
  • In a large saucepan on medium-low heat, melt the butter, swirling occasionally. As soon as the butter melts, add the marshmallows and white chocolate. Stir frequently and heat until fully melted and smooth.
  • Fold the marshmallow mixture into the cereal. Stir well until the cereal is evenly coated.
  • Scrape the mixture onto the prepared baking pan. Spread evenly (you won't fill the whole tray) until you have a circle of treats about 10 to 12 inches across and 3/4 inch thick. 
  • Cool very well, about 2 hours. You may also chill in the refrigerator.
  • Use a flower cookie cutter to cut out shapes. If the cutter is not as deep as the cereal treats, press the cutter into the treats with your palm. If necessary, use a sharp knife to cut around the cutter.
  • To decorate the flowers, place 1/2 cup of any color candy melts in a microwave-save bowl. Melt at 70 percent power for 90 seconds. Stir, using the residual heat to fully melt the candy. If needed, microwave at additional 15 second intervals. Transfer to a disposable decorating bag. 
  • Snip the tip of the bag and pipe a dot in the center of a flower treat. Place an un-melted yellow candy melt on top. Pipe dots for the petals.
  • Repeat with remaining colors of candy melts. Let set well, about 30 minutes.
  • If desired, insert a lollipop stick.
