There are just times you just want to go back to the classic treats…and today was one of those days. Putting together a twist on this classic treat was so much fun! The boys were absolutely thrilled when they saw I was doing something new with kripsie treats! Kids are so funny sometimes.

Not only are these fun treats super delicious, they are also pretty easy to put together.

If you want to serve something a little different to your family and friends after a great meal, these bon bons are the ticket! Besides it’s not too often when all the work is done ahead of time and there’s no real clean up when dessert is actually served! Don’t you just love that? :)

Hope you enjoy your bon bons!

A line up of the major ingredients used. Just like to share what I use with you – first the white chocolate is Choceur brand and it comes from Germany. Don’t be fooled, I buy it at ALDI. I use it often because I love the flavor! That’s it, end of statement. :)

Next up we have Frosted Rice Krispies and Vanilla & Chocolate Swirl Marshmallows. For the final touch I used chocolate jimmies and pearl jimmies. Whether you use these products is up to you!

This is what the bons bons look like undressed, or before you coat them in chocolate. If you’re looking for a bright white chocolate feel free to use candy melts. They always work well.

Rice Krsipe Bon Bons

Ingredients:

6 cups Frosted Rice Krispies, or your favorite rice krispies

1 – 8 ounce bag Vanilla & Chocolate Marshmallows, or any marshmallows you prefer

4 tablespoons butter

12 ounces Milk Chocolate Candy Melts

12 ounces White Chocolate melts, or 7.05 ounce bar Choceur White Chocolate (not quite as much as the candy melts, just use until gone)

Chocolate jimmies

Pearl/white jimmies

Directions:

1. Line two cookie sheets with wax paper or parchment paper. Meausew out rice krispies and place in a large bowl; set aside.

2. Melt the butter and marshmallows in large saucepan over LOW, stirring occasionally. Remove pan from heat; stir in rice krsipies.

3. Stir until well coated using a rubber spatula or large spoon sprayed with cooking spray. Once the mixture has cooled a bit, start scooping balls with a small cookie scoop or regular spoon. When rolling the balls in your hands be sure to press the balls together just a bit to form a tight ball. The balls should be about 1-inch on diameter. Place rice krispie balls on cookie sheets lined with wax paper. Allow balls to sit until cooled.

4. Melt chocolate melts according to package directions. Using your fingers or with a spoon, or even toothpicks, dunk the rice krispie balls into one of the melted chocolates. Working with 3 or 4 at a time seems to work best.

Place the balls you’re working with on one of the wax paper lined cookie sheets. Immediately top with sprinkles. Allow the ball to set up until chocolate is firm and bon bons can easily be moved. If you want to place them in the fridge for a few minutes that’s fine. Just be sure to take them out again. Serve at room temperature.

Fourth of July Rice Krispie Treats

Prep time: 10 min | Total time: 45 min (includes cooling)    

Ingredients:                                                                                       VER_DSCN2214

5 cups Rice Krispie cereal, or your favorite store brand

4 tablespoons butter

1 – 10 oz. bag marshmallows, mini or regular size

3/4 cup dry Stars & Stripes Funfetti cake mix

1/2 cup red, white and blue sprinkles, plus for sprinkling on top

1 bag white chocolate melts, or white chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Spray 13×9-inch pan, or 8 or 9-inch square pan with cooking spray. Using a 8 or 9-inch square pan will give you a thicker bar, 13 x 9 will give you a thinner bar. Measure out rice krispies and place in a large bowl; set aside.

2. Melt the butter and marshmallows in large saucepan over LOW heat, stirring occasionally. Remove pan from heat; stir in cake mix until smooth.

3. Add rice krispies to the mixture. Stir until well coated using a rubber spatula (sprayed with cooking spray) to incorporate everything. Once the mixture has cooled a bit, add the sprinkles and continue to mix. Transfer mixture to prepared pan and use a spatula or waxed paper to evenly press into pan. Let cool.

4. Melt white chocolate melts, or white chocolate chips according to package instructions. Spread melted chocolate over rice krispie treats until smooth and sprinkle with red, white and blue sprinkles or sprinkles of choice on top of white chocolate for decoration. Transfer to the fridge for 15-20 minutes to allow treats and white chocolate to set before cutting. Cut into small squares. Serve at room temperature. Best when eaten same day.
