Baby Shower White Chocolate-Dipped Rice Krispie Treats

1 package store-bought OR 1 batch homemade Rice Krispie Treats
1 (1 lb.) package white candy melts or 1 (24 oz.) package white bark coating
2 T. shortening
White non-pareils sprinkles
Blue candy melts (or other desired color)

1.  Melt candy melts or bark coating and shortening together in the microwave per package directions (typically in 30 second intervals, stirring in between).

2.  Dip each Rice Krispie Treat in the candy coating, letting excess coating drip off back into the container. Sprinkle with sprinkles, as desired. Place on waxed paper and let stand for coating to set up.

3.  Once all the treats have been coated, place blue candy melts in a zip-top plastic bag; seal. Submerge in hot water until melted, kneading until smooth (or, microwave in 20 second intervals until melted, kneading after each interval).

4.  Snip a tiny hole in one corner of the bag and drizzle blue accents over the treats. Let stand until coating is firm.
