Ingredients
  

  • 7 tablespoons butter
  • 10 ounces miniature marshmallows
  • 8 cups Fruity Pebbles cereal

Instructions
 

  • Prepare a 9x13 pan by rubbing the bottom and sides with butter. This can be easily done by using one end of a stick of butter. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add marshmallows, stirring until melted.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and immediately pour the cereal into the pan on top of the melted marshmallows. Stir as quickly as possible until well combined.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Dampen the flat of your fingers with cool water and use these to evenly spread the mixture into the pan, packing it down.
  • Let the treats sit for at least 30 minutes before cutting them into squares.

Notes

  • You can also melt the butter and marshmallows in the microwave. Take a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir then repeat 2 to 3 times in 30-second increments until everything is melted. Combine with the cereal in a large bowl.
  • If you don’t want the melted marshmallows mixture sticking to your hands, take some wax paper and press down on the mixture by hand with the wax paper in between.
  • Make sure you don’t over-compress the gooey fruity pebbles mixture into the bowl, or the bars will end up being really hard to eat.
