• 5 Cups crisp rice cereal
  • 3 Cups California raisins
  • 1/4 Cup margarine
  • 1 Package (10 ounces) marshmallows
  • 1/3 Cup presweetened fruit flavor powdered drink mix
  • 24 (4-ounce) paper cups
  • 24 wooden sticks (available at hobby and craft stores)


In large bowl, combine cereal and raisins. Set aside.

In medium saucepan, melt margarine. Add marshmallows. Cook and stir over very low heat until marshmallows are melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in drink mix powder. Pour over cereal and raisin mixture; mix well.

Lightly spray fingers and paper cups with nonstick cooking spray. Firmly pack mixture into sprayed cups. If using wooden sticks, push one all the way to the bottom of each cup. Cool completely. When ready to serve, turn cups upside down and tap bottoms to remove pops.
