Chocolate Crispy Treat

If you've read the blog before, you know that Rice Krispy Treats are a mainstay in our house. So easy to make if you have everything on hand. It it doesn't have to be just puffed rice cereal. You can use Flakes, Rice Chex, Pebbles...or whatever you may have on hand.

This particular day I was putting together a Birthday gift as a special request from my husband's friend. He just loves these chocolate covered krispy treats. He had them on the Christmas tray I had given him, and knew he wanted more! I got the idea after seeing them in HOME GOODS food department. I always check out that aisle when I'm there to see any ideas of sprinkles or flavorings they may have. Right before Christmas they had a bag of 4 or 5 of these sticks for $4.99. I thought wow, I can do it cheaper than that!

What you do is make the krispy treats as usual in a small jelly roll pan. I use a 9 x 13. When cool, I cut the treats in half lengthwise and then cut into small 3/4 inch strips. Then I dip just one edge into melted milk chocolate. After they have set up, I package into cellophane bags. They make great gifts to give away!

Those look yummy.

They also sell a peanut butter version in the store. Any idea on how to incorporate PB? I wonder if you could spread on some PB before you dip in chocolate.

Hmmm, intersting idea.

I must have ESP....I was just thinking about making some for Monday. I bake cakes for my co-worker's Birthdays, and this particular person does not like sweets....what's wrong with him...????...lol.. So she prefers to have some of my Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip, and I thought of making rice crispy treats for others to enjoy....and here is your post..how cool is that!

This is interesting... I don't make crispy treats at all (is that weird?) but I love chocolate.. maybe that's what I needed ...

Does the chocolate just harden by itself?

And add sprinkles! Or, shove lollipop sticks in the end and wrap them in cello for really cute classroom treats.

Rice Krispy treats are one of man's greatest creations.
