These cupcakes are LOADED with fruity pebbles!
I added 2 cups of crushed fruity pebbles to a box of white cake mix. (And by crushed I mean powder-ized.)
I spread a thin layer of my Easy Buttercream on top, then rolled the top in slightly crunched fruity pebbles.
Pretty, rainbow-y, and perfect as a last-minute St. Patty’s Day treat!
Krispy Treats with Fruity Pebbles mixed in.
I have been wanting to make these for awhile.
I went to the store to get the ingredients and the Fruity Pebbles were special neon colors! Perfect for me because basically that means red is replaced with pink and the rest of the colors are a little brighter. My perfect palette. 🙂
Mix together 4 cups of Rice Krispies and 2 cups of Fruity Pebbles.
Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a medium pot on low heat, then add an entire bag of regular marshmallows (4 cups if using mini marshmallows).
Once they are completely melted (this takes an eternity), pour over the cereal and mix with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula quickly until all cereal is coated.
Dump into a 13×9 pan sprayed with cooking spray. Spray cooking spray on hands and press down into pan as evenly as possible. Wait at least 2 hours. (Torture, I know.)
Invert the pan on a cutting board and cut into 2 inch squares.
I LOVE these. They’re not overly fruity because we just used a small amount of Fruity Pebbles. Plus, they’re fun and pretty and easy. And they would go perfectly with Easter!
