post for details). A few weeks ago I made April Fool's Sushi and had some leftover Rice Krispie treats that didn't work with the shapes/sizes that I needed. So I had an idea. I had Rice Krispie treats. I had dark chocolate. I had cute jimmies. I had everything I needed for this delicious little poppable snack.
leftover Rice Krispie treats (like from this post)
1 c. dark chocolate
1 T. vegetable shortening
assorted jimmies (optional)
Cut your Rice Krispie treats into small cubes. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper
Using a double boiler, melt the chocolate and shortening. Once melted, remove from heat. Using forks or spoons, roll the Rice Krispie treats in the chocolate until coated. Remove from the chocolate and allow to cool on the baking sheet. If desired, sprinkle with jimmies and allow to cool.
Pop in your mouth and enjoy!
~the amount of chocolate listed here is for a small batch, because it was only leftovers. If you make the traditional amount of Rice Krispie treats (like the recipe on the box) I recommend tripling the amount of chocolate and shortening.
