Caramel Marshmallow Krispy Balls

Wendy Rusch


OMGosh...I've been wanting to post this candy ball thing, like forever. But I only knew them as Horse Turds, that's what we called them, its what we were told they were called growing up. I didn't know if I dare post something called horse turds...well, I was on the taste of home recipe site earlier and I found these, the same thing as my horse turds, and well, this name is much nicer. So now I can post

Everyone in my family loves these.

  • 10 c
    rice krispies or a little more

How to Make Caramel Marshmallow Krispy Balls


  1. Lay wax paper over counter tops or table. Place rice krispies into a large bowl, set next to wax paper. Open marshmallows and have handy near wax paper.

    In a large heavy saucepan over medium heat, melt together caramels, sweetened condensed milk, and butter. Cook and stir until caramels are melted and the mixture is smooth. Place pan near wax paper on a hot pad. Have 2 forks, one to stab the marshmallow and one to help remove it from fork. Dip marshmallow into caramel, roll in rice krispies, then set on wax paper. Continue until all caramel is gone. If caramel starts to harden, you can return to stovetop to melt again.

    Allow to set up or dry at room temperature. For a quicker set up, place in freezer for 30 minutes. Serve at room temperature. Store in air tight containers in refrigerator or freezer. Can be left out all day on a goodie tray with no problems.
