How to Make Nemo Rice Crispy Pops
These Finding Nemo rice krispy treats with sprinkles are a quick and easy no-bake snack that kids and fans of all ages will love. You can even get the whole family involved decorating rice krispie treats!
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
To start, gather the following ingredients:
- Rice krispy cereal treats
- Colored candy melts, blue candies or white chocolate melts with blue food coloring
- Candy sprinkles
- Goldfish crackers
- Lollipop sticks, popsicle sticks or decorative straws
- Wax paper
- Microwavable bowl
Step 2: Prep the Treats
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Unwrap the rice krispy treats and place the shaped treats onto the lined baking sheet.
Step 3: Insert the Sticks
Insert a lollipop stick or popsicle stick into each treat, making sure it is firmly secure. Allow the treats to cool and set for about 30 minutes.
Step 4: Prepare the Candy Melts
Add the white chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and marshmallows together in the microwave for around 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Add the rice krispy cereal and mix until well combined.
Step 5: Decorate with Candy Melts and Sprinkles
Dip each treat at an angle into the melted candy melts, covering most of the front and top of the rice crispy treat. Swirl the krispie treat bar around to make sure it is coated on all sides. Use a toothpick to make drip marks, then sprinkle with the candies and mermaid mix and add 1-2 edible goldfish crackers.
Pro Tip: Pop the melting wafers in the microwave for 15 seconds between pops to warm up the chocolates for easier dipping.
Step 7: Enjoy and Share
Once the treats have set, they are ready to be enjoyed! Serve them at parties, movie nights, or as a special treat for the kids.
For a complete Finding Nemo-themed experience, pair the treats with blue tropical punch or ocean-inspired drinks. Don’t forget to share your creations on social media using a #everydaymouse, so everyone can admire your creativity and connect with other Disney fans!
