holiday rice krispie treats with chocolate recipe

Requisite Backstory for SEO:
I love Rice Krispie Treats. I seriously think I enjoy them more now than I did when I was a kid. Whenever I go to Disney, my favorite treat to splurge on is their Mickey Mouse Rice Krispie Treat, dipped in chocolate and covered in sprinkles. Some people have their Dole Whips, I have my Rice Krispie Treats. If you've ever made Rice Krispie Treats at home, you know they're a crowd pleaser without too much effort. Inspired by my favorite Disney treat, I decided to upgrade my homemade treats, and now I'm sharing my method with you! You can make these for any occasion, not just Christmas, by switching out your cookie cutter and sprinkles.
