I only knew these as Horse Turds, that's what we called them, its what we were told growing up. I remember as a child, not knowing if I dare tell people we had cookies called horse turds, then as we grew up, it soon became a joke amongst all of us relatives.
Every year, someone called Grandma to request Horse Turds on the goodie tray at Christmas time!
Then they called my Mom…now it's me! Even my Mom calls me to ask if I made any Horse Turds! - lol
A silly simple cookie that is super YUMMY!
Caramel Marshmallow Balls Recipe
10 cups rice krispies, or a little more
2 packages large marshmallows, you probably won't use them all
2 14-ounce packages of caramels, unwrapped
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup butter, softened
Directions: 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 the other fork.
Dip marshmallow into caramel, then 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.
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.
