Last week I was thinking about whipping up a batch of Rice Krispie Treats when it dawned on me that I could use the same recipe and use a different cereal. Wow! What a game changer. I made a batch of Fruity Pebble Treats and my family went wild for the new twist on an old favorite!
This recipe is super simple. There is no baking involved.
You will need:
6 cups of fruity pebbles
10 ounces of mini marshmallows
3 tablespoons of butter
Melt your butter over medium heat.
Add marshmallows, stirring frequently until they are melted.
Remove from heat.
Add fruit pebbles, stirring so that all of the cereal is coated.
Place in a 9x13 baking dish (ungreased)
Allow to cool and set for about an hour then cut into small squares.
As you can see in the photo I made mine thinner than most people probably would, but I wanted to have manageable cereal snacks for my son who is 3. By thinning my cereal snacks down (I used a 9x13 and an 8x8 baking dish) I created something he could chew easier.
These are colorful, they smell fantastic, they are sweet and fun to eat, they were very easy to make and best of all they are a lot healthier than many other options I could have purchased prepackaged.
Are you a fan of Fruity Pebbles or Rice Krispie Treats? I would love to hear from you!
