  • 12 rice cereal treats purchased or homemade and cut into rectangle
  • 4 paper straws
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons milk
  • brown gel food coloring
  • sprinkles


  1. Cut your straws into thirds. Insert one straw at the bottom of each rice cereal treat.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat together butter, confectioners’ sugar, cocoa powder and milk.
  3. Once your buttercream is smooth and forms semi-stiff peaks, add a small amount of brown gel food coloring. Mix until completely combined.
  4. Scoop your buttercream into a piping bag with Wilton frosting tip #8 attached.
  5. Frost the top of each rice cereal treat, covering it almost in its entirety. Pipe out the bottom so that it looks like it’s a dripping popsicle. You can even add some “drops” if you’d like!
  6. Use a metal spatula to smooth out chocolate buttercream.
  7. Sprinkle each cereal treat, pressing down gently to ensure the sprinkles don’t fall off.
  8. Store in airtight container until ready to serve.
