To try to minimize the sugar snacks, I try to mix things up a little and this is snack from my childhood that brings back happy kitchen memories. My mom used to make these with leftover rice. This was before we had a microwave so rice wasn’t saved and reheated. Instead, she would make these simple, yummy rice balls and wrap them in wax paper for snacking.
I thought the black and white themed rice balls would be fun for the Halloween season. They’d be a nice option for a Halloween buffet or gathering.
For these rice balls, I used some fun black and white polka dot cupcake holders and lined them with strips of seaweed (nori). I rolled the rice into balls using the method on my recipe card above. A light sprinkling of black sesame seeds tops off the black and white color scheme and adds a tiny bit of crunch and flavor.
Thanks for visiting.
