  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Open the Rice Krispie Treats and discard wrappers or make a batch of homemade Rice Krispie Treats and cut them into 2 in x 3 in pieces.
  • Insert a popsicle stick in the base of each Rice Krispie treat and place them in the freezer for about 5 - 10 minutes to harden and set the sticks.
  • Pour 3/4 of the bag of candy melts into a microwave safe dish and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring when done, until melted.
  • Remove the Rice Krispie treats from the freezer and dip or use a spoon to coat each treat with melted candy coating. Set the covered treats on the parchment lined baking sheet. 
  • While the candy coating is wet add two candy melts to the top of your treat to create the ears.
  • Add 2 candy eyes to your polar bear and add one more white chocolate melt with a brown M&M on top to create the nose.
  • Repeat with each treat.

Gluten Free

  • Make homemade Rice Krispie Treats using gluten free rice cereal.


  • If your candy coating hardens before you can add the decorations you can stick them on with a little bit of frosting.
