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 mother, then later in my dorm to share with the girls on the floor, and now as an adult with my own family. 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.
We’re not talking about one kind of chocolate here — it takes two different kinds of chocolate to make these darling fall treats! 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.
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.
Allow the treats to set, cut, and then dip in melted chocolate. Be sure to use a candy coating chocolate, otherwise you’ll need to either temper the chocolate or keep the treats in the refrigerator.
You can find candy coating in any craft store and most grocery stores in the baking section. 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.

Now the only question is, with whom will you make these treats?
