Recipe by Mimi in Maine
My daughter found this recipe in a magazine and thought it would be good to make for her daughter's nursery school snacks. So, I helped her make them and they are very colorful for Easter. You can either use the Fruity Pebbles or the Cocoa Pebbles. She used a teflon coated cupcake pan and did not grease it and they came out fine, but if you use a regular cupcake pan, I would lightly grease it like the recipe says. These are very easy to make and the kids will love them.
