OK, I'm still a kid at heart. My husband brought home the most decadent treat I've had in a long time, chocolate coated rice cereal bars (1/2 white chocolate on one side and 1/2 milk chocolate on the other side). They were being sold by the Fondue Pot from a kiosk in our local mall. They were soo good! Anyone ever made these at home?

The best homemade rice cereal bars...follow the basic recipe but add bakers chocolate (unsweetened chocolate). The marshmallows are already sweet enough, and the chocolate flavor is really intense!! YUM!

Scotcheroos are yummy as well -- I can't remember the exact recipe, but it involves peanut butter in the marshmallow/rice mix, and butterscotch chips and chocolate chips on top.

If your talking about Rice Krispie Treats covered in chocolate.......... then yes I've made those at home. I make these over the Christmas holidays and are very easy. I also do pretzles, mini candy canes, Peanut Butter Ritz Bits crackers.

I buy the prepackaged Rice Krispie Treats in a box in individual packages. Even the normal sized ones I cut in half on a large sheet of wax paper. In the baking section of the grocery store look for the almond bark. You can get it in chocolate and vanilla. Once you have the Rice Krispies cut and ready melt the chocolate per the directions on the package in the microwave. Take it out of the microwave and sit it on the wax paper. I use two toothpicks to pick up the Rice Krispie Treat and dip it into the melted chocolate and coat it flipping it over then using the toothpicks take out of choco and sit out on wax paper to harden. You have to work fast as the chocolate will harden.

Another fun variation is to make the treats out of honey nut cheerios or froot loops. I also like to add dried fruit or various candies to mine when really adventerous. But sometimes there really is nothing better than a good old fashioned rice krispie treat.

I stopped in at the kiosk at the mall this evening and they were dippin' everything from cookies to pretzels, and strawberries to candied fruit! Told me it's a one of a kind test market by the Fondue Pot and they've put up a skinny dot com --> The Melting Pot's Dip! Chocolate Fondue Creation - Home. All the melted chocolate (white, milk & dark) was very thin. Every time I've tried dipping pretzels, oreos, or anything else, the chocolate has always been too thick. I make RK treats for my grandkids regularly and I also love the pretzels dipped in almond bark (again, the coating is just too thick for my taste).
