Fruity Cuties!!!

I am always looking for cute little treats to give out and since spring and Easter are just around the only made sense to make eggs and flowers! Here was the chance for Fruity Pebbles to show off its yum and win the debate that they were better than the Lucky Charm treats we made for St. Patricks day.

We started by making the treats:
1 Whole box of Fruity Pebbles
4 Tbsp Butter
We used 1 bag mini marshmallows and 1/2 bag of large marshmallows {because that's what we had on hand! You can use less or more if you want to!}

Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until they are melted. Remove mixture from the heat and add the box of Fruity Pebbles. Stir until well coated. Press the mixture evenly into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. We waited until they cooled and then used a large flower shaped cookie cutter. We then dipped the bottoms in melted almond bark and waited for them to harden. After was decorate as you'd like. We outlined the flowers with candy melts.

After making these we realized a few things....
1. They are cute all packaged up!!
2. They are super easy to make for sure and make a fun treat!!
3. These are Way too big to be eaten by one person, better to share with someone sweet if your going to use a large cookie cutter, otherwise, make small flowers!! {I bet bite sized flowers would be adorable!!!}
4. The eggs did not look cute. Nope, just didn't like 'em.
5. We wont be trying Fruit Loops' Treats. Ever.
and last but not least......
6. Fruity Pebbles has Nothing on Lucky Charms....

Now I'm off to make some chocolate covered pretzels. I have a Girlfriend and her Family coming to stay for the weekend and those are some of her favorite treats!! I think I'll make them all spring colors!!
Have a Happy Thursday!!
