Crispy Rice "Donuts" Dunked in Chocolate

"It’s been 24 hours and I’m still not over these Rice Crispy Donuts. Currently in the car on a weekend road trip and I’m seriously considering turning back to grab the last two that I left in the fridge. Would it be awkward if I told my fam I forgot something important, ran in to “grab it” and emerged with a chocolate mustache??? If you have fond memories of rice crispy treats as a child you MUST MAKE these."
