Chocolate Covered Rice Crispy Treats

The other night, I attempted to make Chocolate Mousse using only sugar, water, and chocolate. Unfortunately I could not find my scale, so the amount of chocolate was off and the mousse never whipped correctly. It was disappointing, but I wasn't giving up on my hope of having something chocolately. Also, I had already promised V that I'd make him something. All I had left were Milk Chocolate Candy Wafers (the kind you melt down for cake pops), so I grabbed some Rice Krispy Treats (premade, because I was lazy) and a square pan.

What you'll need:

  • Milk chocolate (candy wafers were okay, but I'd definitely use a Hershey's bar or two next time!)
  • Rice Krispy Treats (homemade or Kellog's)
  • 8" x 8" Square Pan
  • Butter or Baking Spray
  • Spatula
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray/butter your pan to ensure easy removal of the rice krispies if you wish. I'd suggest it because mine were a pain to get out without anything on the bottom.

2. Arrange your Rice Krispy Treats in the pan. I fit 12, vertically and horizontally. You don't need to fill up the whole pan if you don't want to, but just make sure the ones that are in there are touching.

3. Place your chocolate on top in any way you please. I put four wafers per row and that worked great. You'll have to experiment if you're using a chocolate bar.

4. Place it in the oven. I was impatient and put it in at 130 degrees. You really just need to let the chocolate melt, so that it is soft enough to spread.

5. Keep checking on the chocolate and take it out when it's soft enough. I think this took like 5 minutes tops for me at a lower temp than what I'm suggesting. But watch closely because burnt chocolate is the worst. It will look start to look really shiny.

6. Take a spatula and spread the chocolate over the rice krispies. It should move easily and coat the rice krispy treats well.

7. Now, enjoy! Either wait till they harden a bit, or if you're like V and I, enjoy hot and gooey.

This turned out to be more fun because the hot melted chocolate lead to more of this, rather than eating haha:

This is a great quick, easy, and delish dessert for anyone with chocolate and rice krispies lying around in your pantry! It's also obviously a lot of fun to make with a group or with someone else. :)
