8 cups fruit-flavored crisp rice cereal*
1 (10-ounce) package regular marshmallows or 4 cups miniature marshmallows
Powdered sugar, if desired


2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 to 2 tablespoons milk


Place cereal in large bowl. Spray 15x10x1-inch jelly-roll pan with no stick cooking spray. Set aside.

Melt 1/2 cup butter in 3-quart saucepan over medium heat; add marshmallows. Cook, stirring constantly, until marshmallows are melted (4 to 5 minutes). Remove from heat. Pour marshmallow mixture over cereal. Stir until well coated.

Press cereal mixture evenly into prepared pan using buttered spatula. Let cool 30 minutes.

Invert pan onto sheet of waxed paper.

Trace around small child's hand on lightweight cardboard; cut to form a pattern. To make mittens, place pattern on cereal mixture; cut around pattern with table knife. Shape remaining cereal mixture with buttered hands into 1 1/2-inch snowballs. Roll snowballs in powdered sugar, if desired.

Combine all frosting ingredients except milk in small mixer bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often and gradually adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency.

Spoon frosting into heavy resealable plastic food bag. Snip tiny tip from one corner to make a very small hole. Decorate mittens with frosting as desired.

*Substitute cocoa-flavored crisp rice cereal.

TIP: A mitten-shaped cookie cutter can be used.
