Monday’s Bread Bowl: Chocolate Dipped Rice Cakes

A lighter and chocolicious alternative

These treats can satisfy those cravings for heavier sweet snacks or desserts. Rice cakes provide a hearty crunch. The process changes plain rice cakes into specially prepared confections. Here’s our recipe:

What you will need:

1 wooden spoon
1 medium-sized bowl
Wax paper
1 flat cookie sheet or cutting board
6 to 8 (4 oz) rice cakes, unflavored or apple cinnamon
8 ounces, chocolate chips

Preparation and Directions:

Place piece of wax paper over cookie sheet or cutting board. Pour chocolate chips into bowl. Place bowl in microwave and zap for 30 to 45 seconds or until chocolate melts. Stir well with wooden spoon. Next, carefully dip each rice cake into melted chocolate on one side. Position dipped rice cakes with chocolate side up on wax paper. Let rice cakes cool until chocolate hardens. You can serve these immediately and store leftover in an airtight container.
