Christmas Rice Krispies Marshmallow Balls

Recipe by Purdy Good Cook

This is such a great addition to any Christmas tray. They are so cheap and easy to make, and they taste great. My Grandma gave me the recipe, but I'm not to sure where she picked it up from. Hope you enjoy.

I made these for a Halloween treat for my son's preschool class. I brought in another treat today for his Christmas party and got yelled at by his teacher for not bringing in these! She said she and her husband LOVED them. I promised her more soon. They were very tasty, I enjoyed them too!
