WONKATEERS, PROJECT #2: Chocolate Dipped Krispie Treats and Marshmallow Wands

These fun and easy chocolate dipped treats combine two things that most people go nuts for:  chocolate and stuff-on-a-stick!  For the December Lyceum class, the kids and I dipped marshmallows, rice krispie treats, and s'mores.  Oreos and Nutter Butters are fun too ~ just be careful inserting the stick.  They have a tendency to crack. 

In the following tutorial, we're using the Chocolate Transfer Sheets.  You need not use Transfer Sheets to make festive looking chocolate dipped treats, however.  One of the things my girls most enjoy is when I melt some white chocolate, place it in a ziploc freezer bag (or pastry bag), snip the tip, and allow one to drizzle the chocolate over the candies, while the other shakes on the sprinkles.

Chocolate Dipped Treats DIY


  1. I've never done any candy making but these look really easy and cool. I've bought premade candy with designs on them but I didn't realize you could buy transfer sheets to do that at home. You may have inspired me!

  2. These might be my fav. so far.
