Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons real butter unsalted
  • 1 16-ounce package large marshmallows
  • 1 11-ounce box Fruity Pebbles, approx. 6 cups
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • *optional* assorted spring colored milk chocolate chips see note

Instructions

  • Prepare a 10.5"x7.5" baking pan by lining with aluminum foil. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add marshmallows and stir until soft and smooth. Add salt and stir until thoroughly mixed. Add Fruity Pebbles and stir until well coated throughout.
  • Pour mixture into prepared pan and let sit until cool*.
  • *OPTIONAL*, top with spring colored milk chocolate chips if desired. Place in 325 to 350 degree oven and melt just slightly (do not overcook or chips will turn brown!)

Notes

*The spring colored milk chocolate chips are OPTIONAL in this recipe. Please note, if you *do* use milk chocolate chips on the top, this will make these Easter Marshmallow Krispy Treats REALLY SWEET. To get the mixture that you see in the picture, you *may* need to buy multiple bags of chips and separate out the colored ones like I did. I bought a 'springtime mix' for the yellow and pink (and had to take out the chocolate brown ones); and I bought a 'winter mix' to get the green color (and had to take out the chocolate brown ones). That means you'll have lots of dark and semi-sweet chocolate chips left over for another recipe.
