Dog Bone: Rice Crispy Treats (White Chocolate Covered)
Have you ever eaten a Dog Bone before?
Not the real ones, but the ones shaped like rice crispy treats?
I love rice crispy treats, but covered in white chocolate is to die for.
Aren't sure, just try one and I guarantee you that another will be following right behind it. You can also decorate them with frosting and add more toppings, but dipped in white chocolate they are irrestible flavorful. Also using white chocolate instead of frosting will keep the treats sturdier, which will make it easier to add lollipop sticks if you wish.
These are fun and inexpensive to make. Your kids will love making them with you and make great kids birthday party treats.
It's easy to mold rice crispy (krispie) treats into your favorite animals, characters, hobbie objects, etc.
Dog Bone White Chocolate Covered Rice Crispy Treats Recipe
Check out how to do it yourself below!
Do It Yourself Pictorial Guide
1. Here are the ingredients with which you will create your master pieces, some are optional.
2. Place wax paper on the cookie sheets and set aside. Melt the butter in the sauce pan over low heat. Spray spoon with cooking spray.
3. Once butter starts to melt add the marshmallows and stir immediately. Let marshmallows and butter melt completely until liquified.
4. Remove from heat and stir in crisped rice cereal. It would be easier to stir everything in a separate large bowl.
5. Once completely blended pour into the cookie sheet (or casserole dish). Spray fingers with cooking spray and press into cookie sheet to desired thickness.
6. Press the dog bone cookie cutter into the pressed mix then place the dog bone shapes onto the other cookie sheet.
TIP: You can place the treats in the refrigerator while melting the chocolate(next step) to allow them to harden up a bit, which will make it easier to decorate them later. You will not need to store them
7. Now it's time to melt the chocolate. Either use the microwave(easier) or a double boiler. Pour a small amount of the chips into the small microwaveable bowl.
You do NOT want the chocolate to thicken up due to overheating. So to be safe heat the chips the first time for 30 seconds. Chips will still be pretty solid, this is normal. Remove and stir then reheat in 10-second intervals stirring between each time. Continue until chips are liquified and smooth, if they are too thick add a tiny bit of vegetable oil then stir again.
TIP: Mercken's colored chocolate wafers add some life to the treats.
Dip rubber spatula into chocolate and spread over each dog bone. Put the treats aside to let chocolate set until hardened. If you can wait 24 hours before decorating it would be better, but if not at least 30 minutes or more.
8. Decorate with your favorite candies, toppings or writing gel. Create borders, write messages, names, etc.
What ever you do, have fun!
