Easy Chocolate Covered Rice Krispie Treats can be made with homemade or store-bought rice crispy treats.
Chocolate Covered Rice Krispies Treats
I LOVE how easy these white chocolate-covered Rice Krispie Treats are to make! You can use homemade rice krispie treats or buy a box of premade treats at your grocery store.
I like to use store-bought treats because they are all the same size and look consistent on a tray. If you are great at getting even cuts you can easily use homemade treats.
When I make these I have to make sure that my husband is out of the house. My husband LOVES rice krispie treats. He tends to walk by me in the kitchen and pick up one or two treats as he heads to the office.
Thankfully these are so quick and easy to make I can just whip up a few more.
Did you see the chocolate covered sugar wafers we shared and the chocolate covered pretzels? I will share a secret with you...I made them all at the same time.
Melt the chocolate once and make 2-3 treats at one time. This is a great way to make a variety of holiday desserts for a party or dessert charcuterie board.

How to make Chocolate Dipped Rice Krispie Treats
Step 1 - Set up your baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Melt chocolate bark in 30-second intervals in the microwave. Make sure the bowl does not have any water or moisture in it before adding the chocolate bark.
After each interval stirring is needed.
Step 2 - Dip Rice Krispie treats in the chocolate. You can completely coat the treats or leave a section uncovered.
Step 3 - Immediately sprinkle with sprinkles and place on parchment paper.
If you wait to add the sprinkles the candy coating will turn hard and the sprinkles will not stick.
We hope you enjoy this Christmas Rice Krispie Treat Recipe!
A bowl under the sprinkles is a great way to spread out the sprinkles and have them last a bit longer. When you have a great mix of sprinkles use them to cover additional treats.
For a fun twist coat white chocolate with mini chocolate chips.
You can add paper straws or popsicle sticks to make these into rice crispy pops.
