I have been hunting high and low for cute ideas for St Patrick’s day. I love really having fun with the holidays with the kids. I was trying to find something rainbowy with fruity pebbles. When all else fails make something! So, I hit the pantry and started gathering ingredients not quite sure how it would turn out.
I had a little helper, but don’t let her cuteness fool you. She was after only one thing…chocolate. 😉 My girl!
Here is what my helper and I came up with. Hope you love them as much as we do!
Over the Rainbow Treats
- 3 Cups Fruity Pebbles
- 1 1/2 Cup Broken Pretzels
- 1 1/2 Cup Rice Chex
- A handful of chocolate chips optional
- 10 ozs marshmallow package regular, 4 cups mini
- 3 TBSP Butter or Dairy Free Margarine
In a large bowl measure out the cereal and pretzels and stir together.
Prepare a muffin tin by spraying with cooking spray.
In a large microwave safe bowl place marshmallows and margarine. Microwave on high for 1 1/2-2 minutes until marshmallows are melted.
Stir marshamallow mix and poor over cereal mix.
Stir until coated evenly. (Throw in chocolate chips now if desired)
Grease your hands and pick up a small baseball size of the cereal mix and press into the cupcake pan. Do this until the pan is full and allow to cool.
Serve or store in an airtight container.
**Gluten Free* Fruity Pebbles are gluten free and we used our favorite gluten free pretzels to make these treats. As always check the labels on all of your ingredients. **Dairy Free** I used coconut oil instead of butter when I melted the marshmallows. You could also use a dairy free margarine.
Measure out cereal and pretzels into a large bowl.
Microwave 10oz of marshmallows and 3TBSP butter or margarine on high for 1.5-2 mins.
Poor melted marshmallows over cereal mix and stir…move fast!
Grease your hands and press the gooey cereal mix into a greased cupcake pan. You should be able to fill the pan. Allow to cool.
