Chocolate Mint Hot-and-Cold Cocoa

  • 4 envelopes instant hot cocoa mix

Rice Krispy Treat Ornaments

  • ¼ cup butter
  • 10 ounce package marshmallows
  • 6(ish) cups Rice Krispies
  • extra butter
  • colored sugar sprinkles and nonpareil sprinkles
  • Rolo candies
  • toothpicks

Melt butter and marshmallows together.  Mix well.  Add Rice Krispies cereal.  Mix until combined.

With well-buttered hands (not a phrase I type every day!), shape sticky cereal mixture into balls.  I got 6 balls out of one batch of Rice Krispies treats. Pack tightly.

Sprinkle colored sugar or nonpareil sprinkles over each ball.  Gently press sprinkles into the treats.

Stick one end of a toothpick into the bottom of a Rolo candy.  Plunge the other end of the toothpick into the Rice Krispy treat ball to attach the Rolo and make it look like the top of an ornament.
