Festive Christmas treats.

I think I’ll be making these to take to MIL‘s house this Christmas. So much easier to deal with on a 3 hour drive than say, the pumpkin pie with vines and leaves made out of crust I made last year that I was terrified would just get ruined on the drive there.

1/4 C. butter + extra for your hands

(you’ll need for shaping the Rice Krispy treats into a ball)

1 10-oz. package marshmallows

1 tsp. vanilla

6 C. Kellogg’s Rice Krispies

Holiday-colored sugar sprinkles



Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add marshmallows and stir constantly until well-combined. Add vanilla, and stir again. Add the Rice Krispies cereal. Mix until all of the cereal is coated with the marshmallow mixture. Butter your hands well, then and shape the cereal into six balls. Make sure they’re packed tightly. Acting quickly, roll the balls in colored sugar or holiday-colored jimmies or sprinkles until coated. For the top of the ornament, stick a toothpick into one end of a Rolo candy. The other end of the toothpick long goes into the Rice Krispy ornament.
