Fruity Pebble Fudge

This has not been a good medical week for me…

Yesterday I pulled a muscle in my neck.

Not so strange, you say?

Well, I incurred the injury by yawning.

Yes.

Apparently I am a violent yawner.

I pulled my “turn neck to the right” muscle.  That’s the medical name.

So I am perpetually looking left now.  All the fun stuff happens on the right.

I feel so left out.

 

Next I made a mockery of my feet by thinking that Tory Burch was my friend.

I walked 40 hundred miles around NYC in my cute flip flops, and was betrayed.

Betrayed by soft leather.  Betrayed by an expensive price tag.

Betrayed into chicken nugget sized blisters on the bottom of my feet.

So now I can’t look right, AND I can’t walk.

 

And finally I went to the eye doctor.  Apparently I should be wearing my glasses allllll the time.

I mean, I like my glasses as a cute fashion accessory, but I can’t be expected to wear them every.single.day.  What if I want to go jogging?

I mean, it could happen.

And allegedly I can’t wear contact lenses because my eye balls are weird shaped.

That’s what the eye doctor told me.

My eye balls are misshapen.

I’m basically a medical anomaly.

 

So today I stayed home and not walked, didn’t look to the right and wore my glasses.

All day.

Oh yeah, and I made some fudge.

Because I read once that fudge helps your eyeballs.

 

Fruity Pebble Fudge.  Make it.

This stuff is so stinking easy.

Not only is it Fruity Pebble Fudge, but it is also White Chocolate Cream Cheese Fudge.

Are you happy dancing yet?

Ok, stop dancing, my feet feel like you’re just showing off.

 

First cream together some cream cheese, sugar and vanilla…

PhotobucketThen melt some white chocolate chips…

PhotobucketThe pour your white chocolate into the cream cheesiness.

PhotobucketMix it upppp!

Then add in some Fruity Pebbles.

And when that’s all mixed and happy, spread it into a foil lined pan.

PhotobucketThen add some more pebbles.  Because it looks cute.

PhotobucketAnd that’s so it.

  1. For the love of all things holy, this fudge is amazeballs. So colorful and creamy and I’m sure, the PERFECT antidote to your awful day yesterday and your medical anomaliness. I also have misshapen eyeballs and have to wear glasses 24/7 unless I want people looking like they came from that 1950s movie The Blob, and they are cumbersome when I decide to go for a jog twice a year. Otherwise, rock ’em!

  2. OMG, forgive for ignoring your story while I drool over your fruity pebble fudge. I’m obsessed with fruity pebbles…this is amazing…umm, going to start a fruity pebble pinterest board now because of this recipe. swoon!!

  3. No kidding – this has been a heck of a week for you. Hope you are on the mend – a pulled muscle is never fun. This fudge would definitely help me heal! 🙂

  4. Seriously, can I pick your brain sometime? Where do you come up with these ingenious treats and recipes? Anything that involves Fruity Pebbles is a must have. Thanks for sharing! xo

  5. What are these fruity pebbles? In the UK we have a confection here called “Rainbow Drops” which basically are like Rice Krispies (puffed rice/maize) but are coated in sugar and coloured. Do you think these would work as a substitute or do you think they’ll get too soggy in the process?

    I so want to try making these.

      I don’t think the Rainbow Drops would work, only because they look puffier? At least in the picture…
      Fruity Pebbles are like flat rice krispies that are fruity flavored. If you have something that is less airy that would work. Really any non-airy cereal would work 🙂

  6. oh man, that’s not good for TB to have such poorly made sandals that give you blisters! hehe, well, at least they’re cute, right?! i strain my neck sleeping cause apparently i like to tilt my head to either side when i sleep and then stay that way. silly. this fudge is such a lovely creation. something i’d love to eat an entire pan of and ruin my wedding diet with!

  7. Smile. This fruity fudge could cure all ills. I’m sorry about your eyeballs and the muscle pull but I’m very glad that you have something sweet to take your mind off it all. Thank you for sharing!

  8. wow i may actually have to buy some fruity pebbles for the first time in like 20 years! (does it still make a mushy mess if you let it sit in milk?) feel better, getting old pretty much sucks ( i know!)

    Shelly,

    I love ya! you crack me up. And just so you know, I too, have had many a crooked neck due to yawning!!

    This recipe looks great but I made your puppy chow rice krispie treats and the family went craaaazy! My husband posted on FB that he thinks i’m trying to kill him with these. LOL

    thanks for all your inspirations!!

    I have been reading your posts for a week now, and I have to tell you that I adore your sense of humor and wit! I am going to try the fruity pebble fudge soon. I need to start making goodies for sale for my daughter’s h/s band. I just signed up for the booster club and to bake/make goodies for fundraising at her events and these look perfect.

    We must be related, I had the same thing happen, except it was the other side of the neck/body thing. I can only look right. The left side has been hurting for a week now, so my outlook on life is somewhat limited. Love the fruity pebbles fudge idea…keep up the good work, even though you have that shoe/blister and neck handicap.

  12. White chocolate fudge has got to make everything better. Love the idea of putting Fruity Pebbles in it. It’s like funfetti fudge! Hope your neck and feet are better. As for the eyes … ugh. Glasses are a pain, but I just try to have some fun with it. Maybe Tory Burch has designed some cute frames (and I’m sure *those* will stay nice and comfy for hours!)

    I made this tonight!! Literally the day after I found it… so simple and sooo delicious, I just had to. Although I divided the batter in half and made two pans… one with Fruity Pebbles and one with crushed Oreos!! They are both fantastic, I can’t wait to try this recipe with other things. :o)

    We made this for my daughters going away to college party last week and it was a hit! It’s so creamy and would probably lend its self to different add-ins in place of the cereal. Great recipe!

    Made this the other day for my bf (he loves white chocolate and fruity pebbles!) it came out looking great, but it is just way too sweet! This surprised me since my bf says that nothing is ever too sweet. Next time, I think I will only use 2 cups powdered sugar. So just be warned that this is a super sweet dessert!

  16. Must make these for son. I’m lactose intolerant so no cream cheese, but son will and does eat anything. Now to search for fruity pebbles or a suitable alternative. Thanks.

    My daughter and I made these, and they are so easy and so fantastic! Thank you! We don’t have Fruity Pebbles in Canada, but I put the word out to my cross-border shopping friends and they came through for me! I’ll have to try the Oreo version mentioned above. (Border patrol would dis-assemble my car if I told them I only brought back Fruity Pebbles.)
