Make-Ahead; Just for Fun

There's magic in the air when you serve these delicious treats. Make a wish and watch them disappear!

Prep: 22 min.; Cook: 2 min., 30 sec.; Other: 1 hr., 15 min.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups corn puff cereal (we used Kellogg's Corn Pops)
  • 1 (12-ounce) package white chocolate morsels
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 12 (12-inch) lollipop sticks
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate morsels
  • Sugar sprinkles (optional)

Preparation

  1. 1 Pour cereal into a big bowl, and set aside. Combine white chocolate morsels, corn syrup, and butter in a medium-size microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 2 minutes; stir until smooth. Drizzle white chocolate mixture over cereal, stirring to coat. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan. Spray your hands with cooking spray, and press the mixture into an even layer. Let stand 15 minutes.
  2. 2 Cut cereal mixture into stars with a 4-inch cookie cutter. Place stars on a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Cover and chill in the refrigerator 1 hour or until firm. (Store excess cereal mixture in an airtight container for snacking.)
  3. 3 Assemble the wands: Have a grown-up insert a lollipop stick into each star. Place 1/3 cup white chocolate morsels in a zip-top freezer bag. Partially seal bag, and set upright in a small microwave-safe measuring cup. Microwave at HIGH 20 to 30 seconds or just until chips melt. Snip a tiny hole in 1 corner of bag to create a small opening. Drizzle melted chocolate over stars, and sprinkle with sugar sprinkles, if you'd like. Let stand until firm. Store wands in an airtight container up to 1 week.
  4. Tip: You'll find lollipop sticks at an arts and crafts store.
