The concept of this 4th Of July Cookie Pops also known as Chocolate Covered Rice Krispy Treats, are not new to this blog. Check out our post that includes a step by step tutorial of making chocolate covered Rice Krispy treats.
We have decided to update our photos for this post and create a few more 4th of July rice Krispy treats after we found a fun box of red white and blue cereal. We not only remade our chocolate covered rice krispy pops but made some additional festive desserts for the American Holidays.
I actually made these for our Memorial Day BBQ and had not had time to blog about them so I thought I would time this with Fourth of July. These made great party favors for the kids and you can make them a few days ahead of time, just keep them in a cool spot.

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THESE 4th Of July Cookie Pops
- You don’t need these fun red, white and blue rice Krispy box but it sure made them festive.

- Red chocolate melting discs
- Blue Chocolate melting discs
- Paper Straws

- Red and Blue Candy
Make the traditional recipe of how to make Rice Krispy treats on the box and if you don’t have a circle cookie cutter use a lid from a jar.
I learned that if you wait for them to harden and then push a lollipop stick with chocolate at the tip it is less messy and they tend to stay in better. I also used the double boiler method to keep the chocolate melted. Just keep checking it and do not let any water into your chocolate.
