Need a Holiday Show Stopper for your table or a fun parting gift for guests? These Rice Krispy Treat Ornaments are both elegant and tasty!
Rice Krispy Treat Ornaments
- ¼ cup butter
- 10 ounce package marshmallows
- 6(ish) cups Rice Krispies
- extra butter
- colored sugar sprinkles and nonpareil sprinkles
- Rolo candies
Melt butter and marshmallows together. Mix well. Add Rice Krispies cereal. Mix until combined.
With well-buttered hands (not a phrase I type every day!), shape sticky cereal mixture into balls. I got 6 balls out of one batch of Rice Krispies treats. Pack tightly.
Sprinkle colored sugar or nonpareil sprinkles over each ball. Gently press sprinkles into the treats.
Stick one end of a toothpick into the bottom of a Rolo candy. Plunge the other end of the toothpick into the Rice Krispy treat ball to attach the Rolo and make it look like the top of an ornament.
***If the mixture is too sticky and not shaping easily, add a bit more cereal.
***Work quickly. The sprinkles stick better when the ornaments are freshly molded.
***These ornaments make a beautiful edible centerpiece. They would also be fun to hand out to guests as edible party favors. Simply place each ornament in a decorated cellophane gift bag and tie it off.
