Chocolate dipped candy corn treats are such a fun dessert to make!
These are easy enough to make with the kids!
I have fond memories of making rice crispy treats with my friends, then later with my kids and now for family and friends.
Gooey marshmallows holding together crispy rice cereal for that perfect sweet crunchy bite — it’s nostalgic and tasty!
If you really want to take your treats to the next level though, dip them in chocolate.
Everything tastes better dipped in chocolate!
We’re not talking about one kind of chocolate here — it takes two different kinds of chocolate to make these darling fall treats!
That gives it the classic candy corn look — which is perfect for the fall season.
Inspired by the Brach’s Indian Corn variety of candy corn, one end of the treat is dipped in dark chocolate, while the other is dipped in white chocolate.
Since each layer of candy corn has a flavor (it’s true), dipping in two kinds of chocolate gives you three different flavor experiences in one treat — just like the actual candy.
How to Make Chocolate-dipped Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats
Start by making up a batch of crispy rice treats with orange coloring.
I use a gel coloring because it takes only a few drops to get a vibrant color.
And the less food coloring, the better food tastes. Just one reason why I avoid dark red and black frosting…it almost always tastes horrible!
But these colors don’t because I do not want to mess up your super-cute, and candy-corn, inspired rice krispie treat.
That would totally give you a bad day.
Allow the treats to set, cut, and then dip in melted chocolate.
Try not to eat any during this process…ha!
Oh! Special note here!
Be sure to use a candy coating chocolate (AKA Candy melts. You can find them here.) otherwise you’ll need to either temper the chocolate or keep the treats in the refrigerator.
That could get a bit complicated, and we’re going for simple!
This kind of chocolate coating doesn’t require tempering, so you can melt in the microwave, dip, and let it set.
Treats dipped in candy coating do not require refrigeration, which is perfect if you’d like to use these as party favors or easy snacking.
