Curiosity got the best of me when I was making a batch of these lovelies and I had to try a few different variations. I rolled some marshmallows in chocolate rice krispies and some in chopped peanuts. Oh man were they amazing. I also think it would be really good to drizzle chocolate over the top of the marshmallows. The possibilities are endless with this recipe.

    I have been making these for years. One time I didn’t have rice krispies so I tried corn flakes. Everyone likes them made with corn flakes better.

  2. Hi! Do you think they can be frozen? Would that change the texture of the Rice Krispies?

      1. My great grandmother used to make these and she ALWAYS froze them, they do not change the texture at all it actually makes them better!

  3. We have been making the rice krispie marshmallow balls for at least 30 years. A total favorite in our family

  4. Living in Thailand, I unfortunately cannot find Kraft Caramel Bits anywhere:(
    What can I use instead? brown sugar?

  5. These are very tasty but very messy! I rolled mine in chopped peanuts and they turned out sloppy but delicious.
