Key Ingredients You’ll Need
Marshmallows: You will combine them with the peanut butter and butter to make a warm and creamy mixture to act as glue for the balls.
Rice Krispies Cereal: You can see plain or flavored cereal to add to the peanut butter mixture.
Reese’s Cup Mini’s: These will be placed in the center for a tasty surprise when you bite into the snowballs.
White Almond Bark: I use this to coat the balls in a chocolate layer, then top with sprinkles.
How To Make Rice Krispie Snowballs
Step 1. Add the butter to a medium pot over medium-low heat. Put in the marshmallows and peanut butter and combine until fully melted. Take away from the heat and put in the Rice Krispie cereal and combine. Allow the mixture to rest for 10 minutes to cool.
Step 2. Use parchment paper to line a baking sheet and portion the mixture into a round ball using a tablespoon and flatten before placing one Reese’s mini in the center. Form the mixture to make a ball. Melt the almond bark and dip each ball into the chocolate before arranging it onto a piece of parchment paper. Top with sprinkles and allow them to cool for 25 minutes in the fridge.
Variations For Rice Krispie Snowballs:
Now, some of these options can be used as a substitution, but will alter how the recipe will turn out slightly if used:
- Instead of regular plain cereal, you can use fruity pebbles or add a few to the plain for a pop of color!
- Feel free to use another type of soft candy in the middle like Rolos, Milky ways, etc
Tips & Tricks
- Place the leftover snowballs in an airtight container or zip lock bag for the best storage method.
- To make the dipping process a bit easier, I recommend using two forks.
- Feel free to use any kind of chocolate that you want; white, milk, dark, etc.
