RICE KRISPIE lollipop treats - Pinwheel - RED & GREEN holiday edition - Christmas Colors - Holiday FUN!

We make these treats all the time so we decided to change it up a bit. 
Today we made lollipop Christmas Rice Krispie treats. 
They turned out so cute!

The other day I found these Holiday Edition Rice Krispies cereal at our local HEB. 

They are running a give back program if you make their treats!!! I'm definitely sharing these. If you post a photo on social media they will donate a toy for Toys for Tots! Cool right!?

I made my usual recipe HERE but was feeling a little rebellious and added another cup of mini marshmallows. Lol! 

It might have something to do with my helper :) He wanted more. "You sure that's enough marshmallows!?"

I used parchment paper to roll them out. 
My rolling pin was as long as my baking sheet so it was easy to roll out evenly.

I used a large cookie cutter and tried to cut as many as I could. I pulled excess and re-rolled two more times. 
Made 17 total.

I gently lifted and placed on a new piece of parchment. They are really gooey and will fall apart if not supported.

To add the straws I lifted and placed the straw underneath. Gently pressed down. The thicker they are the better. I had two that were thinner and you could see a bump where the straw was. Those were my "mess ups" and boys ate them.

The straw will stick to the treats with very little pressure. Once completely cool you can pick them up by just the straw.

I measured the cookie cutter and drew a pinwheel circle in the center. (not pictured)

I cut along the pinwheel line and reversed cutting out enough for a stencil.

Pressed down and added sprinkles.
Removed and ta da! Cute little swirl. 

I tested several different sprinkles but these looked the best.

Bagged and added a little ribbon.

We brought some to bingo and the residents loved them at our local senior living.
