Arrgh. I just finished making these to take to my daughter's church event. I should have known better than to use a recipe I had never tried.Some things you should know:-After making the cereal/marshmallow mixture, you will have to allow it to cool for a while before you can form it into balls. And you will have to heavily grease your hands. Often.-The popsicle sticks like to come out of the balls.-Do not try to dip the balls, then hang them upside to dry to get the bottoms to dry pretty. The cereal ball will fall apart and right off the stick. :(-I made 1.5x this recipe and barely had enough for 30.They do taste good! I may make it again, now that I know what not to do.
