Well, Easter is coming soon! One of the best parts about this holiday is trying out different fun ideas for making Easter baskets with the kids. This year, this particular one we found on Post Consumer Brands is a really cute idea! It’s an edible Easter basket made out of Fruity Pebbles. Check out the video to learn how to make it and follow this recipe:
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
1 pkg. (10-1/2 oz.) miniature marshmallows (6 cups)
1 pkg. (13 oz.) Fruity Pebbles Cereal (about 8-1/2 cups)
Line 2-1/2- to 3-qt. bowl with foil, extending foil about 2 inches beyond edge of bowl. Lightly grease foil; set aside.
Place butter in 4-qt. microwaveable bowl sprayed with cooking spray. Microwave on high 45 sec. or until butter is melted. Add marshmallows; stir to coat. Microwave 1-1/2 min. or until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 45 sec. Microwave an additional 4 min., stirring after 2 min. Add cereal; mix well.
Place cereal mixture in foil-lined bowl; press firmly onto bottom and up side of bowl to form thick shell. Let stand in cool dry place at least 4 hours or overnight until firm. Remove cereal shell from bowl, using foil handles. Carefully peel off foil. Fill shell as desired. Makes 24 servings.
