The concept of these are not new and to see the step by step tutorial of making chocolate covered Rice Krispy treats check out this post. I thought I would make something festive for the American Holidays.
I actually made these for our Memorial Day BBQ and had not had time to blog about them so I thought I would time this with Fourth of July. These made great party favors for the kids and you can make them a few days ahead of time, just keep them in a cool spot.
WHAT I LEARNED THIS TIME:
I learned that if you wait for them to harden and then push a lollipop stick with chocolate at the tip it is less messy and they tend to stay in better. I also used the double boiler method to keep the chocolate melted. Just keep checking it and do not let any water into your chocolate.
