{recipe, kind of} Rainbow Rice Krispy Treats

It’s gray and dull outside, so I felt like sharing a colorful rainbow today. How about a big plate of rainbow Rice Krispy treats?

I don’t understand why, but if you make rice krispy treats with Fruity Pebbles cereal instead of Rice Krispies, people will act like you are a genius. Kids, adults, whatever- it amazes them that you thought of this. And I think they taste quite a bit more exciting than run-of-the-mill krispy treats!

Here’s how you make them: Make the original, standard Rice Krispy treats recipe, but use Fruity Pebbles instead. That’s it. I stacked these wedding cake-style with parchment rounds in between to make them seem fancy. You can use Cocoa Pebbles if you prefer, or even a mix of Cocoa Pebbles and Rice Krispies, but they won’t have quite the visual wow factor that only a sugary cereal’s neon food dyes can offer!

    Now you’ve got me wondering about all the other sugary cereals I could add sugar to and make bricks out of….. Corn pops? Capn’ Crunch Berries? The possibilities!

    If these were sitting on my counter I would have a very hard time keeping my fingers off them. They are SO pretty and look very, very tasty!

    Fruity Pebbles are also gluten-free unlike Rice Krispies, so it’s a great Gluten-Free alternative. One of those times when I prefer the gf way of cooking.

    Any idea how many calories per srnvieg? And about how big a srnvieg is? I made these and have just been cutting blocks out of the pan b/c they are so yummy 🙂
