Funfetti Rice Krispies Treat Ice Cream Sandwich Pops for the ultimate summer fun treat! They are made by sandwiching ice cream between Funfetti Rice Krispies Treats, coating them in white chocolate and sprinkles and sticking them on a stick to enjoy as a pop!
Funfetti Rice Krispies Treat Ice Cream Sandwich Pops, because life is better with sprinkles 😉 These have summer written all over them! Just looking at them makes me happy. I mean, Rice Krispies Treats, ice cream and sprinkles!?! How can you go wrong!?
I started dreaming about Rice Krispies Treats Ice Cream Sandwiches in the dead of winter… don’t ask me why… I guess I was just dreaming of brighter, sunnier days! But I scribbled down the idea in January or February and here we are in July, an appropriate time to share this fabulously delicious creation!
My best advice for these treat pops is don’t be afraid to get a little MESSY! When you are dealing with marshmallow and ice cream, things can get a little sticky and dripping, but that is what makes it FUN!
They are fun to make and even more fun to eat 🙂 If you have little kids this could make for an exciting afternoon adventure and I’m sure they would be happy to dive in, get a little sticky and help! There are a lot of steps along the way they can help with like stiring the sprinkles into the Rice Krispies Treats or dipping the pops into white chocolate!
How to Make Funfetti Rice Krispies Treat Ice Cream Sandwich Pops
Start by prepping the Rice Krispies Treats, melt the butter and marshmallows together on the stove top. Next mix in the Rice Krispies.
Wait about 5 minutes to let the Rice Krispies Treats cool off a bit before adding the sprinkles. We don’t want the sprinkles to melt, but don’t wait too long that the Rice Krispies Treats start to harden!
Once the sprinkles are mixed in press half of the mixture into a greased baking pan in an even layer. Spray your hands with a little cooking spray to help with this step so your hands don’t stick to the Rice Krispies Treats!
Next comes the ice cream layer. You’ll want to take your ice cream out a few minutes before you need to use it. You won’t be able to spread the ice cream if it is too frozen, but you also don’t want a melty mess so make sure you don’t take it out too early! Spread the ice cream in an even layer about 1/2″ thick.
Top the ice cream with the remaining Rice Krispies Treat. This is the harder part, but luckily the Rice Krispies Treat is very malleable and forgiving so just keep pressing and it will come together!
Into the freezer it goes! You need the ice cream sandwich brick to set and freezer completely before trying to slice them into bars, this will take at least 2 hours.
When it’s set, take it out of the freezer and flip it onto a large cutting board. It should pop out, but if it doesn’t you can use a butter knife to help loosen up the slides and help it along. Use a good knife to slice it into bars. For larger pops, like the ones pictured here, slice it into 9 bars, for smaller pops slice it into 12. Press a cake pop or popsicle stick into each bar.
Back into the freezer they go! This time they are still pretty frozen so they just need about 30 minutes to reset.
Right before you take them out of the freezer, melt the white chocolate and coconut oil together. We use the coconut oil because it acts like magic shell to help the white chocolate harden.
Dip each pop into the white chocolate and then sprinkle with sprinkles to decorate! The white chocolate hardens fast because the pops are so cold, so make sure you are working quickly with the sprinkles!
Store them in the freezer until right before you are ready to enjoy!
