Puffed Rice Summer Snowballs

A healthier version of rice cereal marshmallow treats.


Cooking spray

2 cups mini marshmallows

3 tbsp unsalted butter

2 tsp Aunt Sue’s® Raw & Unfiltered Clover Honey

Kosher salt

4 cups puffed-rice cereal

2 tbsp flaxseeds, ground

2 tbsp roasted unsalted sunflower seeds


Spray a large metal mixing bowl with cooking spray and set aside.

Warm the marshmallows, butter, honey and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the marshmallows are completely melted and the mixture is blended.

Remove from the heat, add the puffed rice and stir with the marshmallow-butter mixture.

Transfer the rice mixture to the prepared bowl and sprinkle with the flaxseeds and sunflower seeds and stir.

Form into 8 balls (about 1/2 cup each).

Let cool about 30 minutes, then wrap tightly in parchment or plastic wrap.
