Soul Food Saturday #35

Good Morning! I hope this weekend finds you warm and cozy. If you live in a part of the country, like we do, where the deep freeze set in this past week, I hope you are thawing out. Temps below 0 and wind chills around -15 are not what I consider fun! But the snow came with them, and that makes for a happy little boy! Today we've got something the kiddies will love for Christmas...and maybe they will even want to share with Santa!

Are you still looking for ideas for all those holiday parties coming your way? Don't you love when you show up with the one thing that everyone loves? Especially when the kids do too/ You know someone is going to ask you for the recipe, and why not share the holiday spirit in one more way. This is an oldie but goodie recipe for me. I have always loved our beloved Rice Krispie treats, who doesn’t? But I have also loved so many other cereals along the way. So just for you and in giving more during this holiday season here is a treat made just like our favorite, but with Pebbles cereal instead. This one uses the fruity variety keeping in tune with our Christmas theme. Grab a few bags of marshmallows you’ll want to make a few batches of these.
Christmas Treats Adapted from Rice Krispies
3 tbs. butter
1 (10 oz.) package regular marshmallows
6 c. Fruity Pebbles cereal

In a large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.  Add fruity pebbles cereal. Stir until well coated.
Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.
