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!!
