Hidden Surprise Rice Krispie Treat Basketballs
plus more for greasing the bowls
about 40 or 5 cups mini marshmallows
orange food coloring gel or drops
crispy rice cereal
In a large saucepan, melt the butter and marshmallows, stirring constantly.
Add the orange food coloring until the mixture reaches desired color.
Remove from heat and gently stir in cereal, mixing until well coated.
Find two bowls that are the same size and shape to use as molds. Grease the bowls with butter or you will regret it later!
Scoop out enough of the mixture to fill the bowl up the sides but not the center.
After you fill the bowls, let the mixture cool for a few minutes. Turn the bowls over and the crispy ball "halves" should slide right out.
Fill one side with Skittles and then press the two halves together to make a ball.
Squeeze, press and roll the ball around in your hands until the seam is gone and you have a nice round ball.
Pipe lines onto the balls using chocolate or frosting to resemble basketballs
