A Trio of Snacks, and a Sweet (here’s the sweet)

This brings me back to childhood.  Who didn’t love Rice Krispie treats?!  Make them look like footballs and they fit into any Super Bowl party!

Rice Cereal Footballs

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe rice cereal treats
  • 1 (4 oz.) package Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted
  • White decorating icing

Instructions

  1. Make a batch of Rice Cereal treats according to package directions (you will need rice cereal, marshmallows, and butter). While still warm, using a ¼ cup measure (oil the inside) shape into footballs, this works better with wet hands. Place on a sheet pan covered with parchment paper and let set. Top with the melted chocolate (I found it easy to spread on top with a small spoon). When the chocolate sets, pipe the icing to look like laces of a football.
