Let’s Get This Party Started

So, I fancy myself a bit of a Krispie treat enthusiast.

Let’s stop and think…
Marshmallows…check
Butter…check.
Necessary filler (Rice Krispies) to hold to first ingredients together…check.
Yes, as you can see the Krispies are a bit of a means to an end, so to say.
They certainly taste fine, but we all know the reason that these have hung around in American kitchens for so long is not because they are an enduring classic cereal…but more because we have all fallen in love with the brilliance that is the Krispie Treat.
I am married to possibly the only human on the face of the planet that doesn’t like Krispie Treats…which is really a shame because he is pretty much perfect in every other way.
It was one of those things that we, as females, tend to think we can “change”.  I thought sprucing up the plain old Krispie would make him cross over to the right side of the playing field..especially seeing as he and only a handful of others still remain on the non-krispie side.
I’ve tried S’mores Krispies
Chocolate Chip Krispies
Coco-Krispies
Fruity Pebble Krispies (the all-time fave in out house)
and a few others that I need to post about
But, alas, a Krispie fan he is not.
Come to find out he doesn’t like…wait for it…MARSHMALLOWS!
What the?!?!
 I am just thankful that we have boys who did not get the marshmallow-hatin’ mutated gene.
Now THAT would have been a shame 🙂
So, in my quest to get him to eat a Krispie and enjoy it here’s the lastest…

Have you seen these??

SO CUTE!

Cupcake Pebbles?

Brilliant!  They are a vanilla “pebble” that have these super cute little sprinkles

So, duh, I bought a box and came home to figure out what to do with them…
The how-to’s weren’t on the side of the box I purchased but knew it would be an easy adaptation.
or

Here’s the deets:

makes approx 18 regular sized cupcakes
or 55 mini cupcakes
6 cups Cupcake Pebbles Cereal
3 T. butter
1 10oz bag mini-marshmallows
Cupcake liners
Homemade or canned frosting…whatever flavor you would like
sprinkles are optional…but encouraged 🙂
Prepare your cupcake pan…either lining with cupcake liners or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
(I made my mini ones without liners and the large ones with liners)

Melt butter over low heat.
Once melted add marshmallows and stir frequently until melted.
Once marshmallows are melted remove from heat and add Pebbles.
Now, if you are going to measure amounts out, make sure to spray your spoon or measuring cup with cooking spray to prevent sticking.  I used my hands which I also sprayed liberally with spray.  It gets messy!
Now press approximately 1/4 cup pebble mix into full sized cupcake liners.
For mini-sized cupcakes use a rounded tablespoon amount of cupcake mix.
Using the back of a sprayed spoon press down gently to smooth and even out the cupcake.

Let them cool about 10 minutes and then you are ready to frost.

I would recommend removing from cupcake pan before frosting.
Decorate as you like!

 Aren’t the the cutest?
I know you’ll love these as much as I do…now let’s work on the hubby!
Also, if you haven’t voted for me for Best Mommy Food Blogger, I can use all the
help I can get 🙂  
Thanks and have a sweet week!
Also, I linked this entry up to Cupcake Tuesday over at Hoosier Homemade.
Check out some of the cute Earth Day cupcakes she has over there…really fun!

    I am so glad to know. That I am not the only person in the world that does not like Marshmallow. I was just talking about this the other day to my husband. Saying I must be the only person in the world that doesn't like marshmallow. Now here you are validating me. I am not crazy. It is something that is disliked by others. They look cute though!

    Brilliant! We just saw a commercial for the cereal today and Kidlet was drooling. I will have to surprise him with these!

    Wow, a krispy hating hubby? There should be laws against such a thing! My kids seem to think the packaged krispy treats are just fine (gag) but I am a purist and love the originals. I would love to give these cupcake krispies a try and I bet I can convert my kids too.

  4. Dana

    Never heard of the cereal but I MUST hunt these down. I must say I am not a fan of just marshmallows but I have been guilty of eating an ENTIRE tray of Krispie Treats

  5. Joanne

    I'm sorry I just can't understand liking marshmallow. How does one live without things like smores?

    These are so cute! I love the festive cereal.

  6. The Cookie Mama

    Oooooh…I did these with my girls!!! Back in March (on March 20th to be exact). I posted them on my family blog…there is a link to it on my Cookie Mama blog. They were SO fun!!

    Love your blog…you crack me up like no other! Your wit and my wit would totally get along. I am obsessed with those vanilla bars you made…they are fabulous! And you gave me the quote "moving my hips like yeah good"…I say it all of the time!!

  7. Amy

    Absolutely adorable! I haven't seen that cereal yet, but I'll have to look for it now!
    My son just asked me on Sunday if I would make him some Cocoa Krispie treats.

  8. grace

  9. HoosierHomemade

    Those are brillant! My son saw the commercial for these and told me I should make some cupcakes with these as sprinkles…I bet he will like yours better 🙂

    Fruity pebbles used to be my favorite! I never saw cupcake pebbles! These are so cute! How can hubby resist? I couldn't!

  11. GrapeSugar

    I have to see if I can find these! Great idea! Thank God my husband loves these sort of things….but not cheese(!!)…and that has been a challenge, but at least he eats melted cheese…if he didn't eat at least that, we just wouldn't have lasted 😉

  12. Kate

    I love these! What a fun idea. I haven't seen these in the grocery aisle yet, and I'm all about the sugary cereal ~ and proud of it! I have to try these.

  13. Natalie...

    Omg wow these look amazing!! So many different types of Krispies as well!! I wish there was that variety over here in the UK! Yummy!

  14. Lucie

    I'm always on the lookout for a box of Rice Krispies in France that doesn't cost 5 euros just so I can satisfy my krispie treat craving. Now I guess i'll have to add cupcake pebbles to my search!

  15. Amanda Bartell

    Yummy! When I'm working with sticky stuff like that, I like to stick a baggie on my hand and grease the baggie. Does the job and my hands don't get sticky!

  16. marla {Family Fresh Cooking}

    What a super cute post. These cuppy crispy cakes are looking really yummy. Very playful, as always! xo

    You have no idea how many times I've picked up that box at the grocery store. I keep putting it back down. I'm afraid I will never go back to good-for-me cereal if I try it.

    Buuuut, if I buy it just to make these…well, that is a different story!

  18. Shauna

    A friend posted about these legendary-sounding Cupcake Rice Krispies on The Facebooks and I just about died from cheer. Haven't tried them myself, I fear I will become part of the epidemic if I am faced with a box.

  19. betchacanteatjustone

    We used to be able to get fruity pebbles and cocoa pebbles in Canada when I was a kid but now they're nowhere to be found 🙁

    I want Cupcake Pebbles in the form of cupcakes!!! 🙂

  20. Amy

    I FINALLY found the Cupcake Pebbles yesterday, and can't wait to try these. My kids are not-so-patiently awaiting these adorable little treats! 🙂

  21. AM from White House, Black Shutters

    I've been away from your blog for FAR too long! So good to be back!

    I'm planning my daughter's birthday party and came back to scour your recipes for some sweet treats. Love this idea, thanks for being so awesome! 🙂
