Liven up your Rice Krispy treats.

Tired of plain ol' Rice Krispy treats? Try this. You will NOT regret it.

This is what happens when you want to make Rice Krispy treats and realize you don't have Rice Krispies, but you DO have Cocoa Pebbles ... Hmmm ...

Cocoa Pebble Squares

1/4 c (half a stick) of butter (REAL butter, people. Not margarine, please.)
1 - 11 oz. box of Cocoa Pebbles (7-8 cups)
1 - 10.5 oz. bag of mini-marshmallows (about 6 cups)

Begin melting butter in a large saucepan. Add the marshmallows and stir with a spatula until smooth. Remove from heat. Add Cocoa Pebbles; mix well.

Spread evenly into a 9x13 casserole dish (previously sprayed with PAM or something like it). Let cool.

Try not to eat the whole pan in one sitting. I DARE YOU.

(I would have posted a picture, but they're currently bubbling away in my stomach acid. Sorry.)

My next step is to try it with Fruity Pebbles. I'll let you know how that works out.


  1. Fruity Pebbles rice crispy treats are to die for! Marshmallows and sugary fruit flavored cereal, you can't go wrong!
    I've made them quite a few times and they are so good!

  2. Crushed fruit loops work well too! I would bet pretty much any cereal, butter and marshmallows will taste good together. You're making me hungry!


I like feedback almost as much as I like food.
