It is very much summer here in Phoenix and I have 2 grandchildren staying with me for most of it. We went shopping for foods that they will eat when they got here and one of the things my granddaughter went crazy about was when she saw the Magical Mermaid ice cream, which we of course purchased. Later, at home, we realized that we had Fruity Pebbles with Marshmallows and Rice Krispys and we decided that we had to make Magical Mermaid Rice Krispy Treats to go with the ice cream. Let me tell you, the Magical Mermaid treats tasted much better than the ice cream, in my opinion. My granddaughter was in mermaid heaven! Not only that, she loved making them with me. Bonus points for Grandma!
I think the mixture of the 2 cereals give these treats a more magical look because the color looks more scattered, plus there were the little bits of cereal marshmallows that were a surprise treasure every so often. Plus, I feel like the fruit flavor from the Pebbles doesn't overpower as much as a recipe with only Fruity Pebbles would. If you want to take the mermaid theme over the top, you can sprinkle on little pearl sprinkles before the treats cool.
If you aren't able to see your grandchildren yet, like I am able to at this point, these Magical Marshmallow Treats are the perfect surprise to drop off at their door. They might soften in the heat, but will last pretty well and not spoil.
If you have a mermaid lover in your family, make them Magical Mermaid Treats. They will love you for it.
