Who doesn’t love the Flintstones? We know we do! And that’s why we decided to make cereal bars out of one of our favorite cereals, Cocoa Pebbles. Find out exactly how to make Cocoa Pebbles Cereal Bars today.
How to Make Cocoa Pebbles Cereal Bars
We love the variety of flavor that cereal bars can give us as a departure from homemade original Rice Krispie Treats. If you’ve never tried cereal bars before, Cocoa Krispies is a great place to start.
You may also want to check out Fruity Pebbles, Fruit Loops, Trix, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cocoa Puffs, Frosted Flakes, and one of our absolute favorites, Lucky Charms to see the vast variety of different types and flavors of cereal bars you can make.
You just use the standard ingredients that you would normally use in Rice Krispie Treats for this recipe.
Let’s get right to it!
We start out by melting butter in a large stock pot at medium heat on your stovetop. Once the butter has just about completely melted add a full bag of Jet Puff Marshmallows. You can use a spatula to stir the marshmallows and butter together until completely melted.
Once everything is melted, you’ll want to cut your heat down to low. If the marshmallows get too hot too quickly, they become brittle and stiff, and not very easy to mix.
Now that you have your melted marshmallows, it’s time to add in your cereal. Take 6 measured cups of Cocoa Pebbles and add them directly into the melted marshmallows. Again, using your spatula, stir until the cereal and marshmallows are mixed completely together.
Take out a 9 x 13 baking pan and spray the inside walls and bottom with canola oil or any flavorless baking spray you choose. The baking spray keeps the sticky marshmallows from sticking to the bottom of the pan later, when you’re ready to cut them.
Scoop all of your cereal into the bottom of the pan and flatten it out with your spatula. Do this until the cereal mix is completely flat and level in the bottom of the pan.
Set your pan to the side and let cool for about 30 minutes or so.
We’re getting close to the end now. It’s time to cut your Cocoa Pebbles Cereal Bars.
Take out a sharp knife and carefully cut your treats into 2 x 2 inch squares. A 9 x 13 pan should produce about 15 or 16 cereal bars, depending on how accurate your measurements are.
And that’s it!
