8 cups fruit-flavored crisp rice cereal  

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 (10-ounce) package regular 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


 *Substitute cocoa-flavored crisp rice cereal.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Place cereal into large bowl. Spray 15x10x1-inch baking pan with no-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

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

  3. STEP 3

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

  4. STEP 4

    Invert pan onto sheet of waxed paper.

  5. STEP 5

    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.

  6. STEP 6

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

  7. STEP 7

    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.
