B&W Rice Balls for Halloween or anytime via homework | carolynshomework.comAround this time of year it becomes sweet treat overload at our house. Between the Halloween haul, fall pies and desserts and holiday cookie baking it quickly becomes a sugar snack high all day long.

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 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.
