For this recipe, you’ll need Rice Krispies, marshmallows, butter, vanilla, melting chocolate wafers, sprinkles, and a cookie cutter of the shape you’d like to make.  I stuck to trees, but you could easily do snowmen, candy canes, ornaments, or whatever your heart desires.

Press out your Rice Krispie cake on a large cookie sheet to approximately 1/2 inch or 1.5 centimetres thickness.  Allow to cool, preferably overnight.  If you cut too soon, your squares won’t hold their shape.

Lay out a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet.  You’ll need this to set your cakes on to cool.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave, 30 seconds at a time.  when most of the chocolate is melted, stir the rest until it melts.  It’s much more reliable to melt your chocolate in a metal bowl over boiling water, but I’m just not that patient.

Now comes the fun part. . . dipping the shapes into the chocolate!

The chocolate dries fast, so it makes things easier if you have a second person with you to do the sprinkling.

Don’t put yours on a cooling rack like I did. The chocolate dries around the wires, making it difficult to get the shapes off.

You can leave them plain, or add a bit of food colouring to the chocolate for a different colour.  I really like the taste of crushed candy canes on top.
