So i've been brainstorming Easter ideas to share with you guys and i came up with these fruity pebble easter egg treats. They are basically a rice krispie treat but you replace the rice krispies with fruity pebbles. I normally don't buy sugary cereals so when matt noticed them in the pantry he was super excited. I'm going to go ahead and say i'll always make fruity pebble treats instead of rice krispie from now on because they are so good and i love the bright colors! I used a large easter egg cookie cutter and cut out eggs to make them more festive.
If you wanted to make these into a little easter treat to give out to friends or family you can download this free printable to attach to them. I just printed them out on my home printer on heavier paper. To make them into "pops" i just used wilton cake pop sticks and stuck them into the treat after i cut them. I also found the cellophane bags in the wilton/craft aisle at walmart- they were cake pop bags that came with the ribbon, so easy and convenient.

Fruity Pebble Easter Egg Treats
Makes 1 9x13 pan
10 oz marshmallows
6 cups Fruity Pebbles
Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, once melted add the marshmallows. Once its creamy and consistent mix in the fruity pebbles until combined. Dump into a baking dish and spread evenly, my mixture was starting to cool so i ran my spatula under hot water and that helped smooth the mixture down. Once its cool you can use your cookie cutter and cut out your eggs, or just cut with a knife. I used white melted almond bark and dipped the top of my "eggs" in it for a little extra texture and flavor.
