Serves: Makes 3 3-inch ornaments
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes

 

 
3 six-inch pieces red ribbon
3 tablespoons butter
1 10-oz. package miniature marshmallows
6 cups crispy rice cereal
1 1/2 feet waxed paper
1 16-oz. can ready-to-spread vanilla frosting
1 bag M&M's® Plain Chocolate Candies for the Holidays




Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and stir in the crispy rice cereal.
Scoop 1/3 of mixture onto wax paper and quickly begin forming a ball about 3 inches in diameter with your hands. (Holiday Hint: Before forming, spray hands with cooking spray to avoid sticking.)
Loop one piece of ribbon and gently press the two ends into the top of the crispy rice ball, leaving approximately a 2-inch loop of ribbon exposed. Reshape the ball if needed.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 to form two additional ornaments.
Coat entire crispy rice ball with frosting and then adhere "M&M’s"® Milk Chocolate Candies to the formed crispy rice ball ornament until it is covered. (Holiday Hint: Mix it up and make fun designs with "M&M’s"® Chocolate Candies.)
Set aside until firm to the touch.
