Emily and I made these for my great-niece’s first birthday party. They were a huge hit, especially with the adults; because we’re all just kids at heart! They are so much fun to make and go great for any occasion, holiday, or any day. Not to mention, they’re super quick to make. Maybe I’ll make some today!
Start with any Rice Krispy treat recipe that you like. I prefer the original recipe here. You need a semi-thick recipe because if it’s too soft, it won’t maintain its shape, and if it’s too dense then it’s just really hard to eat. That’s why I prefer the original recipe; it’s a perfect consistency. Feel free to use your favorite, just remember you may need to cut back on the butter a bit if it’s too soft.
Once treats have cooled, flip out onto a cutting board and using a cookie cutter, cut into your favorite shape. I just did squares using a chef’s knife. Be creative and have fun!
Melt chocolate for dipping. Any chocolate will work. I used Wilton’s Candy Melts in pink and purple. Follow the directions on the package for melting the chocolate or candy melts.
Dip treats into chocolate! That’s it! Place on wax paper to dry. Unless that’s as much decorating as you want, or you want to add sprinkles now, then do so while it’s still tacky so they’ll stick! But if you want to add more color keep reading!
Next, comes the decorating part! We melted purple and used a spoon to drizzle it on the treats. You can be really creative here and use multiple colors or add sprinkles, chocolate chips or candies. Really anything your heart desires, so have fun and get the kids involved!
