Considering I had no cupcake pans, I had to slightly modify this recipe. I ended up mixing the rice krispies into the chocolate and then forming little balls that I put on a cookie tray to freeze. I think they turned out decent, but I feel that milk chocolate might have come out better. Thanks for posting. Made for New Kids on the Block 2010.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup semisweet baking chips
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 dash cinnamon
  • 1 cup Rice Krispies (approx, see directions)


  1. Line a mini-muffin pan with mini-muffin paper cups. Fill each cup about halfway with Rice Krispies. No real measurement required here.
  2. Carefully melt the chocolate chips (can also use bar chocolate for baking, candy melts would also work but already have a lot of added flavor thus taking away from the vanilla-cinnamon combo) either on stovetop or in the microwave. If microwaving, be VERY careful because culinary chocolate can burn if nuked too hard!
  3. When it's a nice stirring consistency, stir in the vanilla and cinnamon.
  4. While the chocolate is still hot, spoon over the Rice Krispies, coating them well.
  5. Gently re-microwave if mixture begins to stiffen.
  6. Freeze the pan for at least 2 hours prior to eating.
