- 400g Beacon Pink & White
- 5½ Tbsp (5ml) butter
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- ½ tsp red food
- ½ tsp orange food colouring
- ½ tsp yellow food colouring
- ½ tsp green food colouring
- ½ tsp blue food colouring
- ½ tsp purple food colouring
- 80g slab Beacon Heavenly Ivory Cream chocolate, melted
- 2x 100g packets Beacon Jelly Tots, sorted by colour
- 2x 150g packets Beacon Mini Liquorice Allsorts, sorted by colour
- Ice-cream sticks
- Line a baking tin (22cm x 15cm x 5cm) with baking paper. Set aside for later.
- Put the Beacon mmmMallows and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl.
- Microwave on high in 30-second increments, stirring after each, until mmmMallows and butter are melted and combined.
- Divide the mixture equally into 6 medium-sized bowls.
- Tint each mixture using the different food colouring, mix well until bright.
- Reheat melted marshmallow mixes for 20 seconds in the microwave.
- Add 1 cup Rice Krispies to each colour marshmallow mix and combine well.
- Fill the baking tin with each colour, starting with the red row, orange row, yellow and so on until you have the rainbow.
- Set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
- Sort the Beacon Jelly Tots and Beacon Liquorice Allsorts into their different colours that match the rainbow colours.
- Cut the rainbow Rice Krispies into eight rectangles, with three colours for each pop.
- Use a sharp knife to make a small cut into the bottom. Carefully skewer an ice-cream stick into the base of each rainbow Rice Krispies Pop to resemble an ice-cream.
- Melt Beacon Heavenly Ivory Cream chocolate to use as a “glue” to stick down the sweets.
- Mix and match a Jelly Tot or Mini Liquorice Allsort to the same colour layer of Rice Krispies Pops. For example, place blue Jelly Tots on the blue Rice Krispies layer, and so on.
- Get the kids involved in decorating their own Rainbow Treat Pop.
