Chocolate Candy Corn Rice Krispy Treats Recipe

I have fond memories of making rice crispy treats with my friends.

Now that I have a family of my own, I love making them with my kids!

Gooey marshmallows holding together crispy rice cereal for that perfect sweet crunchy bite — it’s nostalgic and tasty!

Make Rice Krispie Treats Better with Chocolate!

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!

You can find the white chocolate here and the milk chocolate here for this recipe!

Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats Uses Two Kinds of chocolate that gives it the classic candy corn look — which is perfect for the fall season.

Inspired by the Harvest 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!

When Making The Rice Krispy Treats…

There’s one very important rice krispy making tip you have to know.

Ready?

Lean in and listen closely.

Do NOT pack the rice krispie treats down into the baking pan.

Did you read that?

No matter what Aunt Sue told you…don’t do it!

The Better Way to Make Candy Corn Treats

Instead, use greased fingers or a greased spatula to softly…gently... spread and stretch the mixture into the pan.

Then, and only then, use a flat spatula to very gently press the mixture down.

Do not force the treats into the pan or your treats will be thin and hard.

I warned you so don’t complain if you don’t resist the urge to smoosh those treats into the pan…;0)

When Making Candy Corn Treats, Don’t Forget This!

Chocolate Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats Recipe

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.
