We all need a little nostalgia in our lives. As we all get older, it’s nice to be able to have a little taste of yesterday. Like most children, I was a huge fan of Rice Krispie treats. I was also a fan of sugar cereal. It’s funny how as you age, your palate becomes more sophisticated, and your tolerance of sweetness declines. I still have quite the sweet tooth, but it has become more refined. Well, with exception to this recipe.
I recently saw an advertisement for “Fruity Pebbles Marshmallow Treats”. Something about their artificial quality seemed to resonate with me. It’s two of my childhood favorites combined into one. There really isn’t much to these little bars. They are made exactly like your basic Rice Krispie treat, only with fruity pebbles instead of the unflavored rice cereal. The fun colors are also much more vibrant, These make a very fun snack for children, although they are not the healthiest option. Everyone needs a little break from reality, here’s to nostalgia.
Melt butter in a double boiler. Stir in marshmallows.
Once the marshmallows have melted. Stir in the Fruity Pebbles.
place mixture into a greased 13x9in. pan. Place wax paper on top of the marshmallow crispy bars, and press to form an even layer.Melt white chocolate and
drizzle over bars. Once the white chocolate is dry, cut into 24 bars.
