Prep Time: 1 hour

3 cups white chocolate morsels
3 tablespoons shortening
30 lollipop sticks or ice cream sticks
4 Kellogg’s® Pop-Tarts® Birthday Cake toaster pastries
1. In heavy medium saucepan, combine semisweet chocolate morsels, cream and butter. Cook over low heat for 4 to 5 minutes or until smooth, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Transfer to mixing bowl. Refrigerate for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
2. Beat Chocolate mixture on high speed of electric mixer about 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Stir in Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® cereal.

My Review of Kellogg’s® Pop-Tarts® Birthday Cake Flavor: I love many flavors of Kellogg’s® Pop-Tarts® but this flavor, Birthday Cake, I couldn’t get into. To me these don’t have any flavor to them. They are cute and look like a birthday cake if it was a pop-tart but there is no flavor at all. My kids also love many flavors of pop-tarts but they took just a couple of bites off the pop-tart and left it laying. They didn’t like them either. I received this sample of Kellogg’s® Pop-Tarts® for free for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own. #Sponsored #PopTarts50
Likes: The confetti and white frosting did make it look like a “birthday cake.”
Dislikes: They had no taste! Didn’t even taste like a birthday cake.
Would I buy: I will buy many different flavors of Pop-Tarts® but I will not buy Birthday Cake flavor.
