Rice Krispies ornaments
Recipe inspired by Mommy Savers
Yields about 12 ornaments
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 10 ounces marshmallows
- 1/4 cup butter or oil
- Blue and green sprinkles
- Gold ornament tops
Melt marshmallows and butter in a saucepan
Melt butter in a medium-size saucepan over medium-high heat.
Add marshmallows and stir until mixture is completely melted together.
Pour marshmallow mixture over Rice Krispies
Place Rice Krispies into a large mixing bowl. Once marshmallow mixture is melted, pour over the Rice Krispies and quickly stir to coat the cereal.
Roll Rice Krispies into balls and cover in sprinkles
While the mixture is warm, quickly roll into medium- and small-size balls.
Dump the colored sprinkles into bowls and then roll the balls into the sprinkles, being sure to completely cover them.
You may need to roll them a few times to get them fully covered.
Fasten tops on and display!
Using toothpicks, fasten the gold ornament tops on the top of each Rice Krispies ornament.
Repeat until all of the ornaments have tops.
Then display, eat or hang on your tree!
