Granted, it doesn’t take much to satisfy a hungry 5-8 year old girls’ softball team (and all of their little fans) after a late game… but I’m pretty confident that these team-color softballs will be a hit!
Using a regular crispy rice treat recipe (I like to add a little vanilla), the trick to making fun shapes is parchment paper.
Dump the sticky mess onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Using another sheet of parchment paper (a small one just slightly larger than your hand works great), flatten it out with your hand. Work quickly; you don’t want it to set up on you quite yet.
Placing a square of parchment on the treats, press down with a cup and twist. Remove the cup, and lift your “softball” from the pan. Nothing sticks!
If you work quickly enough, you can then squish together the “scraps” to make more softballs, so that nothing goes to waste. Of course, my children were standing at rapt attention… ready for the scraps, so I made sure to leave a few. 😉
