Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons salted butter
  • 10 cups mini marshmallows divided
  • 9 cups Cocoa Pebbles Cereal*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Line a 9x13-inch baking dish with aluminum foil, spray the aluminum foil with nonstick cooking spray, and set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a large pot, once the butter has melted, add in 8 cups of the marshmallows and stir continuously with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until the marshmallows have melted.
  • Remove from heat and add in the cereal, vanilla, and the remaining 2 cups of marshmallows and stir until the cereal is evenly coated.
  • Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish, spray your hands with non-stick spray and gently press the mixture into the pan, don't press down too hard or you'll end up with hard treats.
  • Allow the treats to cool for about 20 minutes before removing from the pan and slicing into 24 pieces.

Notes

  • Cocoa Pebbles may be substituted for other pebbles or rice krispies flavored cereals.
  • For Dairy Free: These tasty treats are not dairy-free since they’re made with butter, but you can make an easy substitution. Replace the butter with 4 tablespoons of coconut oil (and again, read the labels of the other ingredients), and you’ll have a dairy-free version of this recipe.
  • Gluten Free: You can make this recipe celiac-friendly by using gluten-free ingredients. The Pebbles cereals are labeled as gluten-free, however, Cocoa Krispies are not, as they contain malt (which is from barley). Chances are, you can also find allergy-friendly versions of these cereals, too. Don’t forget, you’ll also want to make sure to use marshmallows that are made in a gluten-free facility. To be safe, just be sure to read all labels.
