During the Spring it’s fun to spice up recipes by making them colorful. One of my favorite treats is a spinoff of the original marshmallow treats. The bright colors make them so bright and edible. The recipe is very easy to make and takes about five minutes to prepare. It is a great way to quickly make a treat for the special occasion or for the special last minute celebration. Whip them up and viola! you have an instant party. Just make sure you have another person in the room to ensure you don’t eat them all by yourself. They really are that good.

3 cups rice krispies
3 cups fruity pebbles
1. Add butter to saucepan and melt over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted.
2. Add rice krispies and stir. Add fruity pebbles and stir until well coated. My recipe uses 2 cups of fruity pebbles and 4 cups of rice krispies. However, you can modify the recipe to suit your needs and tastebuds.
