Cocoa Pebble Treats

Before I give the recipe for this delicious treat, I want to give an update on the post Apple Cinnamon Pork Chops that I made yesterday. I made the pork chops for my lunch and for Randy to have for dinner. Randy called me last night while I was at work and wanted to know if I had made anything for dinner or did he have to pick up something. I said I made some pork chops with cinnamon, Randy did not comment about that so I decided to wait until I got home later that night to ask him what he thought. At first Randy thought the sliced apples on top were potatoes but then after taking a bite he realized it was apples. Randy said the pork chops tasted really, really good. I will just have to make them like this again since they were a big hit. Now on to my post for today. I have been in the mood for rice crispy treats but I didn't have any rice crispy cereal except for the cocoa pebbles but it is the same thing just has cocoa in them. I always just used rice crispy cereal so I was in for a wonderful treat when I decided to use the cocoa pebbles. Of course I had to try one after they had finished cooling. Yummy tasting treat for all ages.

Cocoa Pebble Treats

Pour melted marshmallows into the cereal until well coated. Using lightly buttered spatula, press into a buttered 8x8 pan. Allow mixture to cool. Cut into bars.
