Arancini (rice balls) with marinara sauce. I first had these in Italy, and finally found a recipe! I am going to make my own Italian Bread crumbs by crushing Rice Chex and adding Italian Seasoning to make these gluten free.
I was thinking this could be nice also made more holey with Christmas lights or candles inside the jar/s. Another idea is to embellish the jar cover with relevant fruit and use it or give it with homemade jam.
