Taste The Rainbow. Kinda Sorta.

Mmmm. I had a craving for something super sweet yesterday. So I thought I'd attempt to make homemade rice krispy treats! Well while at the grocery store, I bumped into my friend, Jill, from Lil Empty Nest. She came up with a great idea to spice up these treats! Instead of using rice krispies cereal, I should try using fruity pebbles cereal.

Brilliant. So of course here are my colorful treats & boy are they tasty!


I thought i'd share the recipe for Rice Krispies Treats. 
*and show you what I did different with the Fruity Pebbles Cereal!

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
- OR -
4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal (* I chose to use Fruity Pebbles instead)


Directions:
1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. 

2. Add Kellog's Rice Krispies (*Or you can add Fruity Pebbles, like me) cereal. Stir until well coated.

3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.


MICROWAVE DIRECTIONS:
In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow steps 2 and 3 above. Microwave cooking times may vary.

Hope you enjoy : )


Ohhh! I almost forgot. Let me know if you are going to ...


They added one more table & I found out I get to go! Wahoooooo. That is all : )
