2 Ingredient Crunchy Chocolate Cups
These chocolate cups make such a delicious snack or dessert. You only need 2 ingredients to make them and no baking needed!
Servings 12 chocolate cups
- 2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 12 ounces (2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate, chopped * see notes
Line a 12 count muffin tin with paper liners. Set aside.
Add your chocolate to a heat safe bowl. Place the bowl of chocolate over a pot of barely simmering water (making sure not to have the bottom of the bowl touch the water). Heat the chocolate, stirring constantly, until the chocolate is fully melted (about 2 minutes). Microwave Instructions: Microwave your chocolate on high for 1 minute. Take your bowl out of the microwave and stir the chocolate. Microwave in 20 second intervals, mixing in between each burst, until the chocolate is fully melted.
Add your Rice Krispies cereal to the melted chocolate. Stir to coat the cereal fully in chocolate. Portion out your chocolate cereal mixture into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup around halfway high. Lightly press down each cup to pack in the mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and chill until solid (about 1 hour in the fridge or 30 minutes in the freezer).
* For the chocolate you use, make sure you pick a good quality chocolate that's made for melting. I'd recommend using a chocolate labeled as "Baker's" or "couverture" chocolate. Regular chocolate chips don't melt quite as smoothly.
Storage Instructions: These chocolate cups should be stored in the fridge until right before enjoying to keep the chocolate from softening. They'll keep for up to 1 week in the fridge. It's best to store these chocolate cups in an airtight container or plastic bag after they firm up to help them last longer.
