I mentioned before that when I was a kid my mom would buy the big bag of marshmallows. I'm too cheap to do that. It's much cheaper to buy the regular 10 oz. bag. I tried making Rice Krispies treats with the recipe on the box, but they weren't gooey enough, so I started reducing the amount of cereal. It works like a charm! This is my adjusted version of the recipe for Rice Krispies treats that they put on the box, and this time I used Fruity Pebbles, of course, but it works just the same with either cereal. I also think it would be great to do half of one and half of the other. Using all Fruity Pebbles makes them really, really sweet (but still oh-so delicious). I think if you used half and half, you'd get the flavor of the Fruity Pebbles, but maybe it wouldn't be so overwhelming.
Fruity Pebbles Treats

5 c. Fruity Pebbles or Rice Krispies
Spray a 13x9" pan with cooking spray. In large microwave-safe bowl, microwave marshmallows and butter for 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Add cereal and stir gently until evenly coated. Pour into pan. Rub butter on or spray your hands with cooking spray; press cereal mixture into pan. Cool, cut and enjoy!
