Chocolate Football Treats
These fun-to-make, super-easy crispy chocolate rice treats are shaped like little footballs with laces drawn on with decorating gel.
1 (6-ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups crispy rice cereal
White decorating gel
- In large microwaveable bowl, heat chocolate, corn syrup and butter in microwave on HIGH for 2 1/2 minutes, stirring after 1 1/2 minutes.
- Add vanilla and blend well; stir in cereal and mix well.
- Shape into 18 (3-inch-long) football shapes with lightly buttered hands. Place on large sheet of wax paper on the countertop; cool completely.
- Use decorating gel to add the "lacings" to footballs treats. Let stand until gel is firm. Wrap each treat individually in plastic wrap.
Makes about 18 football treats.
