Step #1: Cut out circular shapes from the batch of rice krispies.
Step #2: Melt about 1 cup of orange chocolate melts in the microwave for 2 x 30 second intervals (stirring in between).
Step #3: Use a spatula to pour and smooth the melted orange chocolate across the top of each krispie circle. Once finished, set the orange coated krispies in the fridge for 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.
Step #4: Melt the black chocolate melts in the microwave (just as you did with the orange) and pour the melted chocolate into a piping bag. Cut off a very small section of the tip of the piping bag (to allow the chocolate to come out slowly) and pipe the laces onto your orange krispies. And voilà, delicious basketball treats!
