These were just too cute to pass up. I went to the store intending to buy ingredients for regular Rice Krispies Treats and found the recipe for these little footballs instead. If you’re looking for a fun snack to serve during the Super Bowl, these are it.

You have to love a recipe that calls for you to “use buttered hands”, right? And you should definitely heed that advice, by the way, as this concoction of marshmallows, peanut butter and rice cereal is the absolute stickiest I have ever encountered in my life.

Oh but they taste really good, you should definitely make them. Just get ready for sticky.

So cute! I am going to have to give these a try (with almond butter instead of peanut since my son is allergic).

OMG, my brother used to inhale cocoa crispies when we were growing up. He’d love these cute things. Buttered hands definitely required!
