These Fruity Pebble Easter egg dessert treats are made with three simple ingredients: cereal, marshmallows and butter. Shape them into Easter eggs to make a fun, easy, no-bake treat for the holiday!
Are you sick of the sweets yet this week on Wishes and Dishes? Stupid question, right? Who would be sick of sweets? These fruity pebble Easter eggs are not the most fancy or impressive thing to ever come out of my kitchen, but they are FUN and easy and that’s all that matters sometimes! I’m a firm believer that not everything that is worthy of making has to be complicated. You can make these with your kids for Easter and they would have a blast – you essentially just mix the ingredients and then stuff them in plastic Easter eggs (or use your hands to shape them into eggs – the plastic eggs are not vital to this recipe). I made these for Easter one year and everyone really enjoyed them, kids and “big” kids alike. They are very similar to rice krispies treats!
You can easily adapt this recipe to use any cereal that you want to. The Fruity Pebbles were perfect for Easter because they are so colorful and “spring-like”, but don’t feel confined to using them. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
- ¼ cup butter (half of one stick)
- 10 oz bag of marshmallows
- 5 cups Fruity Pebbles cereal (or other cereal of choice)
- In a large saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Don't let it burn!
- Add marshmallows and stir constantly until melted.
- Pour in the cereal and mix to incorporate everything.
- Spray plastic eggs with cooking spray (the ones that split vertically work the best). OR USE YOUR HANDS TO SHAPE EGGS.
- You could just use 1 or 2 eggs for this process to make them all as the cereal does not take long to take the shape of the egg. That way you only dirty a couple eggs.
- Spoon the cereal mixture into each half of the egg then close egg to form shape. Pop cereal out after about 10 seconds. You can also do this by hand without the plastic eggs.
