Meg had some friends over on Saturday. I think there were about 30 eighth graders - I lost count! :) Her friends requested Monster Bars but I wanted another fun snack so I made these bars. This isn't anything gourmet or original - I found the recipe on the side of the box. I just had to share the idea because they were actually very good. I think we may try Cocoa Pebbles next!
Fruity Pebble Bars (adapted from POST cereals)
1/4 cup butter
1 pkg ( 10 1/2 oz) miniature marshmallows (6 cups)
Fruity Pebbles (about 8 1/2 cups) *I just used an 11 oz box
Microwave butter in 4 qt microwavable bowls on high 45 seconds or until melted. Add marshmallows, toss to coat. Microwave 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after 45 seconds - microwave until completely melted and blended with butter. Add cereal and mix well; Press firmly into a greased 13 x 9 inch pan. Cool and cut into squares!
*I like to spray the bottom of a measuring cup with PAM and use this to gently press the mixture into my pan - works great!
