Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Microwave caramels and water in medium microwavable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until caramels are completely melted, stirring after each minute.
  • Stir in 1-1/2 cups of the cereal. With hands slightly moistened with cold water, shape cereal mixture into 21 small balls, each about 1 inch in diameter.
  • Crush remaining 1/2 cup cereal; place in shallow dish. Roll cereal balls in cereal until evenly coated.

Use Your Stove

Melt caramels with water in heavy saucepan on low heat, stirring frequently until caramels are completely melted. Continue as directed.

Family Fun

When kids help out in the kitchen, it's a great time to teach them first-hand about food safety. In addition to washing hands thoroughly before starting, make sure long hair is pulled back. If shaping food by hand, as with the Caramel Balls, caution children not to lick their fingers or put their hands in their mouths during preparation.

    Tasty, but a mess to make.

    I made several batches of these for Christmas. Everybody loved them. One friend told me that it reminded her of the coating on fried ice-cream. I would recommend this recipe to anyone. They are super easy to make and absolutely delicious.

    This is a good and very simple recipe. It tastes something like a granola bar.
