Bug Bites

Yield: 18 Prep 15 mins Stand 45 mins


  • 1 cup  semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons  unsalted butter
  • 1 cup  sweetened flaked coconut, lightly toasted
  • 3/4 cup  Rice Krispies
  • 1/2 cup  crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 cup  chocolate sprinkles
  • 1/2 cup  sugar-coated tiny black licorice candy sticks
  • 4 1/2 1/2ounces  black string licorice, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces


1. Melt chocolate with butter in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring until smooth, about 5 minutes. Remove bowl from pan and let cool 10 minutes.

2. Gently stir chocolate mixture, coconut, Rice Krispies, and peanut butter in a large bowl until combined well. Chill, covered, until slightly firm, about 15 minutes.

3. Place chocolate sprinkles in a shallow bowl. Using a 1-1/2-inch ice-cream scoop, form chocolate mixture into balls and drop into sprinkles; coat well, working with 6 or 7 at a time (chill mixture to firm, if necessary). Arrange coated bites in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with plastic wrap and chill until firm, about 15 minutes.

4. Arrange on a serving platter. Decorate Bug Bites with sugar-coated licorice sticks to form legs and string licorice to form antennae. Makes 18.
