A snack that may seem to be tedious to make, but is surprisingly easy. Either way, your tummy will thank you!
3cupscrispies cereal, such as Rice Krispies
8ozsemisweet chocolate bar, chopped
1 1/2cupsbittersweet chocolate chips
Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Set aside.
In a large sauce pan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the marshmallows and frequently stir over the heat while they melt. Once melted, remove from the heat and stir in the cereal until coated.
Working quickly, shape the sticky crispy mixture into small bite sized pieces and layer on the lined baking sheet. (Spray your hands with cooking spray to keep the crispies from sticking while shaping.) Set aside and prepare the chocolate.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in a heat-proof bowl set over a pan of simmering water over low heat. Remove from the heat when completely melted. Using a toothpick, dip the crispy bites, one at a time, into the chocolate and turn to coat. Scrape against the side of the bowl to remove excess chocolate, then return the chocolate covered crispies to the lined pan.
Once all crispy poppers are dipped in the chocolate, let set a few hours until chocolate hardens. If the chocolate does not harden, place the poppers in the fridge. It's so humid here in Mississippi, so I store them in the fridge.
Enjoy as a snack with your friends during your favorite movie.
If you are more of a milk chocolate lover, rather than a dark chocolate fan, then substitute whatever chocolate you like.
