Chocolate Krispy Treat Pops
How do I know when a new treat is a success? How about when there is a knock down, drag out fight over who gets to eat it?
Since we are a family of 8, I make all recipes in doubles or triple batches. However, I only had one lonely rice krispie treat left when I decided to give this a try. Probably not my best decision as a parent.
I promised to make a full batch soon, but that did nothing to soothe the savage beasts. If I wasn't still on my diet, I would have eaten it slowly in front of them all. Yep. I'm that mean :)
This is such an easy process and can be changed so easily. Use whatever toppings you want. Use white chocolate instead of dark. Great for kids parties or holidays!

1 batch of rice krispy treats, or you can use store bought ones as well
1 bag chocolate chips (I used semi sweet, but use what you would like)
1 TB vegetable shortening
toppings (mini m&m's, nuts, sprinkles, toffee, oreos, reeses, skittles....)
1. Cut your krispy treats into small rectangles and poke it with a popsicle stick. If you make the treats yourself, be sure you allow the cookies to set until they are completely firm or they will fall apart when you put the stick in.
2. Melt your chocolate chips and shortening in a medium bowl in the microwave in 30 second increments. Mix after every 30 seconds until it is melted. If you chocolate is still a bit too thick to use for dipping, just add a bit more shortening.
3. Use a spoon to pour the chocolate over your pop. Put it on wax paper and sprinkle with desired topping. Allow to chocolate to harden. You can put them in the fridge to speed up the time.
