- 3 Tbsp butter
- 5 1/2 C miniature marshmallows (I actually tried using a bag of large marshmallows since that was what I had on hand and the results were DISASTROUS and I had to throw the entire goopy, globby mess in the trash. I microwaved them and they just kept getting bigger and bigger and I was afraid they would explode. You have been warned ! Ha!)
- 6 C Fruity Pebbles or any generic brand
Melt the butter in a large microwavable bowl on HIGH for 45 seconds. Add marshmallows and toss to coat with butter. Microwave 1 1/2 minutes more, stirring every 45 sec until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is blended well. (Be careful removing the mixture from the microwave because it will be hot! I have bad memories of dropping a bowl of hot marshmallow/butter mixture down my leg when I was a tween. I still have a scar from the burns. OUCH!)
Add the cereal and mix well. Press the mixture into a greased 9X13 pan and cool completely.
