Valentine's Day Treats!

Pin It
My husband’s favorite cereal is Fruity Pebbles.  I am not sure if Rory likes it because she actually likes it or because her daddy likes it so much.   Since my husband hates chocolate, we decided to try this recipe out to see if it would be good for Valentines day.

I was driven to this recipe because it looked like a “rice krispie treat” type of recipe but with out the marshmallows, which is good because as vegetarians our family doesn’t eat marshmallows.   It also does not have any eggs in it, which is awesome because my little bug loves to pick at the tasty treats we make. I found this recipe in our Sunday Paper coupons, and adjusted the sugar a little.  
Materials Needed:
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1, 11oz box of Fruity Pebbles
  • 13*9 inch pan
  • cookie cutters
  • Frostings if desired

We mixed the corn syrup and sugar in a bowl and placed it in the microwave for about 2-2.5 minutes on High.  You know it is cooked when the sugar is completely dissolved and the the mixture will boil a bit on the edges.  (you can also cook this in a saucepan, but because I didn’t want Rory around the hot stove, I chose not the microwave route.  
While the sugars are still hot, add the 1 cup of white chocolate chips and vanilla and stir until the white chocolate chips melt.  Then add the cereal and stir into your pan.  Let cool.
Once they are all cool, you can now shape the treats into anything you want.  We made hearts for our Daddy and and also did a “I and U” so we could spell out “I Heart U.”  
IT was a great baking activity that Rory could help with.  We can’t wait to show them to daddy!
