Christmas Baking: Marshmallow Balls

Today I’m sharing a recipe for Marshmallow Balls as part of my Christmas Baking series. Despite the caramel and marshmallow, these treats are not overly sweet. They’re one of my dad’s favourites. Enjoy!

Marshmallow Balls

1/2 cup margarine or butter
1/3 cup cream
1 – 170 gram package of caramels
app. 3 cups Rice Krispies
24 large marshmallows (we recommend Kraft Jet Puffed)  

Melt the caramels with the margarine and cream. Stir often. Place Rice Krispies in a shallow bowl. Drop a marshmallow into the caramel mixture and using two forks toss to coat well. Transfer marshmallow into Rice Krispies and coat well. Place on large wax-paper lined baking sheet or racks to cool and set. Once cool, you can mold them a bit more into balls. If caramel mixture becomes too thick heat again.

Melting the creamy caramels.

Marshmallows all ready to go.

Rice Krispies also ready to go.

Coating the marshmallow in caramel.

Then comes the cereal... coating the marshmallow in Rice Krispies.

The final product: marshmallow balls.
