Chocolate Sweet and Spicy Rice Krispy Pops  IMG_8050.JPG

adapted from the “Original Rice Krispies” recipe
Makes about 20 golf ball sized pops or 20 squares

Ingredients
3 tablespoons butter
40 regular marshmallows or 4 cups mini marshmallows
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
⅜ teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 ½ tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
6 cups rice krispies (I actually prefer the Trader Joe’s Rice Crispies - but the Kellogg’s original are good as well)

20 lollipop sticks


In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper and stir until completely melted. Add rice krispies.  Stir until well coated.
Working quickly, wearing disposable gloves, shape mixture into balls.  Press lollipop sticks into creating a pop. 

ALTERNATIVELY
Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.
