These are two of my favorite Christmas treats to make because there is hardly any work to do. Plus, who doesn't love something covered in chocolate?!
Chocolate Dipped Rice Krispies:
You can guess the ingredients.
I start with one of those large sheets of rice krispie treats...
And cut it into sticks. I got about 50 out of this one sheet.
Melt some milk or dark chocolate using the glass bowl/microwave method. You can always use a double boiler if you have one. Dip and sprinkle. Or not. Thats the great thing about these. Drizzle with red chocolate or cover in candies or crushed cookie... the options are endlessly delicious ;)
The Red and Green Popcorn is a favorite of many of the recipients of my treats. My brother tried it for the first time this year and he took a big bag home after dinner.
2 bags of buttered microwave popcorn
1/2 pound red chocolate
1/2 pound green chocolate
2 brown paper bags, grocery size
1. First pop the first bag of popcorn and pour in a bowl. Put the popcorn in the paper bag and leave the kernels in the bowl.
2. Melt the red chocolate in the microwave in a glass bowl. When melted through, pour in the bag with the popcorn. Fold over the top and shake!!!
3. Spread over a sheet pan and let cool.
4. Do the same with the green chocolate, the second bag of popcorn and the second brown bag.
Once it's cooled you can break it up a little bit and mix the two colors together. The sweet and salty is so good and looks really cute in a bowl. And, again, you can do any colors you'd like for any holiday you'd like!
Too cute! I bet little kids would love this!
