Week 7-Fruity Pebbles Sour Cream Cookies made with love

Brian, my husband, loves Fruity Pebbles.  I never buy them.  My family would eat a box a day!  I know this because I bought a box to make these cookies.  The kids had some as a snack after school, but when I went up to bed there was still enough to make the cookies.  However, when I woke up there was barely any left.  When I mentioned this to my husband, not suspecting him, he got the biggest guilty smile on his face!  So, back to the store I went and bought my second box of Fruity Pebbles in 2 days.

I wanted to make these cookies as a special Valentine’s Day treat for my husband, because as previously mentioned, he can’t control himself around Fruity Pebbles. They may not be the traditional way to say I love you on V-Day but they are a lot of fun and isnt that what it’s all about! I hope if you love Fruity Pebbles as much as the Sirhals do, you will love these cookies, too!!

Enjoy and Happy Valentine’s Day!!
