The best thing about having sugary cereal for breakfast is that it’s like starting your day with dessert. The colorful, fruit-flavored crispy rice bits in Fruity Pebbles have made the brand a favorite since the Flintstones-inspired product came out four decades ago. These cereal marshmallow bars combine Fruity Pebbles with heaps of melted marshmallows for a sticky, chewy treat that’s perfect for taking breakfast on the go—whether you’re a kid or a grown-up.

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp. (2 oz.) unsalted butter, plus more for greasing
  • 6 cup (10 oz.) mini marshmallows, divided
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt
  • 6 cup (8 3/4 oz.) Fruity Pebbles cereal

Instructions

Step 1

Butter an 8-inch square baking pan. In a large pot, melt the butter over low heat. Add 5 cups of the marshmallows, the vanilla, and salt and cook, stirring continuously, until the marshmallows are just melted, about 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cereal, followed by the remaining marshmallows.

Step 2

Scrape into the prepared pan, pressing gently with a wooden spoon to flatten. Set aside to cool completely, then slice into bars. (The cereal bars will keep well in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.)
