Friendly snowmen made from delicious Rice Krispies Treats® liven up holiday tables.


  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) JET-PUFFED marshmallows
  • 6 cups Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® cereal
  • Black frosting
  • Orange frosting


1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

2. Add KELLOGG’S® RICE KRISPIES® cereal. Stir until well coated. Cool cereal mixture slightly.

3. Using buttered hands, shape cereal mixture into eight 2-inch balls, eight 1 1/2-inch balls and eight 1 1/4-inch balls. (Use about 1/2 cup mixture for each 2-inch ball, about 1/4 cup for each 1 1/2-inch ball and about 2 tablespoons for each 1 1/4-inch ball.) Form each snowman by gently pressing a large, medium and small ball into a stack. Cool completely. Pipe black frosting onto snowmen for eyes, mouths and buttons. Pipe orange frosting onto snowmen for noses. Best if served the same day.


In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow steps 2 and 3 above. Microwave cooking times may vary.
