Has anyone ever told you that it is healthy to “eat the rainbow?” Well, here is an alternative rainbow when you aren’t feeling the healthy lifestyle. We have three words for you: Fruity Pebbles Treats. Yeah, that’s right! Here is a little spin to your classic Rice Krispies Treats. The best part about this recipe is that it is a NO BAKE recipe!
-2 bags (10 oz each) of Jet Puffed Miniature Marshmallows
-6 tbsp of unsalted butter
-1 box of Fruity Pebbles Cereal (15 oz)
-Put 6 tbsp of butter in a small bowl and melt butter in microwave
-After butter is melted, set aside
-Pour one bag of of Jet Puffed Miniature Marshmallows and place in a large microwave safe bowl
-Place bowl in microwave for about 1 min and 10-20 seconds (watch as you microwave marshmallows because they tend to expand and rise!)
-Take bowl out and mix the marshmallows to create “fluff”
-Scoop the marshmallows into another large bowl and set aside
-Repeat with the second bag of marshmallows but after mixing scoop the second batch of “fluff” marshmallows into the same bowl as the first batch
-Take melted butter and pour it into the bowl of marshmallow “fluff”
-Mix the butter and the marshmallow “fluff” until completely mixed
-Open the Fruity Pebbles Cereal (or your desired cereal choice) and pour half of the bag into the bowl
-Mix the cereal into the the mixture
-Pour the rest of the bag into the bowl and mix until well mixed
-Prepare desired size pan (we used a 11 x 8 glass pan) by placing parchment paper over the pan so that the treats do not stick to the pan
-Scrape the mixture into pan and firmly press down with your palms to make sure the mixture is flat (note: wet your hands before you do this because the water causes your hands to not be as prone to the stickiness of the marshmallows as they would be when dry)
-Cut into squares (whatever size you desire)
-Serve! (or store up to two days at room temperature or freeze up to 6 weeks)
Now go call your mother and tell her how you are eating the rainbow!
Feel free to experiment like we did by drizzling/spreading melted chocolate on top and then sticking the treats in the refrigerator until the chocolate hardened!
