Springtime Flower Treats

By Angie McGowan |

Do you want a quick and easy treat to make with your kids that is perfect for spring? These cute little flowers are just the thing for your little girls or boys. If you like rice krispy treats, you’ll love these fruity pebble treats made in the same way. But be warned, these are very addictive. I like rice krispy treats, but could live without them. However after dreaming up this little concoction, I can’t imagine my life without them. I’ll definitely be making them now on a regular basis. If your kids prefer chocolate, you could also make with cocoa krispies or if they like plain, regular krispies.

I made these just like you would rice krispy treats and then pressed them about 1 inch thick on a cookie sheet. After our fruity pebbles treats cooled, my son cut out the flower shapes. Then we used Wilton ready to use icing in a tube to decorate them. Wilton even has the screw on icing tips that fit on these tubes, so the mess made by your kids will be minimal, hopefully. But at least they will have lots of fun!

    I cannot believe I never thought of using Fruity Pebbles instead of Rice Krispies to make them colorful! Brilliant!

  2. Jessica says:

    Yumm!! My kids love fruity pebbles, but not rice krispies. We’re going to try this!

    Ooh I would love to make these…but no pebbles here! Might be able to find them online for about £6-8 a box (which is up to $12 for a box of cereal!) But maybe i can justify buying a box to make some for Easter…hehe mmm fruityvpebbles…i miss American cereal, all full of sugar and fruit flavors…

    These are adorable, and I love all the color!

    Thanks so much for sharing this fun recipe, they are adorable!

    Also, they are easily gluten-free using GF Fruity Pebbles & GF frosting (most of Wilton’s canned frostings contain wheat flour, read the label carefully). There will be a lot of happy gluten-free kids thanks to this recipe!
