How about whipping up these adorable ornaments with the kids this weekend. They would not make it to a tree at our house.

Here is the Recipe for Fun.

Recipe:

1/4 C. butter + extra for your hands (you’ll need for shaping the Rice Krispy treats into a balls)
1 10-oz. package marshmallows
1 tsp. vanilla
6 C. Kellogg’s Rice Krispies
Holiday-colored sugar sprinkles
Rolo candy
Toothpicks

Instructions:

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  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.
