"So simple, I almost hate to post the recipe, but I'll forget about it if I don't. The kids went nuts for these glorified Rice Krispies Treats. Fruit Loops give some color and just enough sweetness. Would be great for a bake sale."
Serving Size: 1 (37 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 24
"My kids loved this! I used Rice Krispies, fruit flavored Cheerios, and fruit flavored mini-marshmellows. It was easy to make and very quick."
"Fast, Easy and Good. These were a huge hit at our party. Half of them were gone before we ate dinner."
"Easy and fast. I didnt have exactly the right ingredients, so used only fruit loops and I had the rainbow(fruit) marshmallows. Super fruity taste, but the color was a little peach instead of white. Thanks for the recipe!"
"What a great little treat aside from the normal. I would never have thought to add FruitLoops and so when I seen this recipe, I just had to give it a try. Great idea!!! And best of all the family loves them too. 5 stars for a brillant idea~"
"Loved these. I never thought about putting Fruit Loops in my rice krispie treats. Everyone loved them. I didn't have a 15x10 pan so I put them in a 9x11 pan but next time I would split it up into two of these pans as they were a bit thick in one pan. I followed the recipe exactly as written but I didn't add the optional vanilla."
"I can't really rate this because I didn't follow your recipe, just the idea. But I used corn pops instead of fruit loops and no rice crispies. They turned out quite well, next time I will use 13 cups of cereal instead of 11 because I had extra marshmallow mixture pool at the bottom of the pan. Thanks for the idea!"
"These were tasty, but I had a hard time with them mixing properly and getting too stiff too quickly (not a recipe for those with arthritic wrists!), but they tasted good, and I will try them again with some round cereal. Thanks for a tasty treat!"
"These were so yummy! Very gooey which is what I liked most about them! I still have Christmas coloured rice krispies left(I know it's May!) so it was extra colourful. Thanks for this delish recipe LonghornMama!"
"This were so darn yummy! We all love regular Krispie Treats and never felt the need to change them, but thought the Fruit Loops sounded irresistable. They provide an extra sweetness and crunch and we all loved them more than regular Krispie recipe. I did halve the recipe, just because my daughter and I got into the marshmallows! Roxygirl"
"These things are addictive. I love how easy rice krispie treats are to make but I always have trouble spreading them out. These spread easier then traditional ones, and were a ton prettier. I've already decided that I'm going to make these when I provide dinner for the youth later this month. Thanks for one we'll repeat many times!"
"Works good as just fruit loops in place of the rice krispies as well. Trix works FABULOUS, but we liked the presentation better when they were still round like Kix. Dating myself a little bit here, eh? *wink*"
