Easy to make, kids favorite treat after school.
- Melt butter; add marshmallows, cook and stir until melted.
- Remove from heat.
- Add cereal, stir until well coated.
- With buttered hands, shape into 1 inch balls.
- Roll in coconut, press gently to coat.
These are a spin-off of your basic Rice Krispies treats. I found at first difficult to form into balls (even with very buttered hands and fingers!--I was washing and re buttering my hands after every couple of balls). What I ended up doing is buttering 9x13 cake pan, sprinkling 1/2 coconut in bottom, pressing down mixture and sprinkling remaining coconut over top. I quickly cut into squares, and then formed balls with squares (with buttered hands) and rolled in coconut again. They were a lot of work for "Rice Krispie treats", but I agree with Inez--the kids will love 'em and will love helping make the balls. I made them for a potluck and they are a lot more appealing to adults than "Rice Krispie treats".
