Rice Krispy treats anyone?? Who doesn't love Rice Krispy treats?! They make me feel like a kid again, when I bought them from the store already packaged. There was just something about them. I liked making them myself, but they just didnt taste the same. There wasn't enough marshmallows or they tasted oily/buttery. So I decided to make them my own way making some adjustments to the original Rice Krispy treats recipe. To make it more fun, dress them up with some color and drizzle some icing on them!
Rice Krispy Balls
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
4 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 - 3/4 cups of Marshmallow Fluff (I found mine at Publix)
(Marshmallow Cream can be subtituted)
6 cups Rice Krispies
1/2 bag of Candy Melts - your choice of color
1 disposable decorating bag
Size 2 Wilton decorating tip
In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows (not the fluff yet) and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Now stir in the fluff - add more or less to suite your tastes.
Add the Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.
Coat your hands with butter and make sure evenly coated. Butter a 1/3 size measuring cup and scoop out some of the mixture. Pull apart into 2 pieces and roll around in your hands one at a time to form a ball. Be sure not to apply any forced packing/pressure when rolling. Set aside to let cool completely.
Line your surface or a cookie sheet with wax paper (helps with clean up). Prepare your Candy Melts according to the package. Put your decorating tip inside your bag. Make sure you cut an opening for it - not too big or not too small. Or if you are using a coupler, put the coupler in the put the tip on.
You may need someone to hold the decorating bag for you. Pour candy melts into your decorating bag. Make sure you hold it over wax paper or a small container. It may leak out the tip a little bit. Then you are ready to decorate the top of your Rice Krispy balls. Try a practice round drizzling on top of wax paper so you can get a feel of the way you want to drizzle your decoration. Enjoy!!!!
