  • Melt butter in a large pot over medium-low heat, cooking and stirring until butter is golden brown and smells nutty, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir marshmallows into brown butter and cook until melted, 2 to 3 minutes. Add bourbon and 1 teaspoon salt; stir until incorporated. Mix cake mix into marshmallow mixture until dissolved; remove pot from heat.

  • Mix 1/2 the rice cereal and 1/2 the fruit-flavored cereal into marshmallow mixture until evenly coated. Mix remaining rice cereal and fruit-flavored cereal into marshmallow-cereal mixture; press into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle sea salt over the top.

These are so good! The only thing I wouldn't do next time and for now on when I make these is not line the pan with parchment paper. The krispies stick to it otherwise. The old fashion way just calls for buttering the pan anyway so that's what I'll do for now on. Read More

I tried this recipe after I saw it on Facebook. My family thought it was too sweet and said they like regular Rice Krispie treats a lot better. I didn't use the bourbon--substituted 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract and 1 Tablespoon almond extract. BTW no need to line the pan with parchment--just spray with Pam and it comes right out. Read More

These were ridiculously good. I think the bourbon is the secret ingredient to making these awesome. Everyone gobbled these up at work when I made them for a friend's birthday Read More

Made no changes. Very delicious. At first I thought the cake mix didn't add anything but after a couple bars I think the cake mix sweetness gets rid of the fruity taste from the pebbles. Very yummy. Read More

When I was a kid my mom once found a recipe using only Fruity Pebbles so I thought I'd try it. I also substituted bourbon using whisky since I was out. Also because on its own I preferred the whiskey tasted better than the vanilla. Overall results were delicious. The cake mix definately intensified the fruit flavor. I wander how it would taste if I went "all chocolate". Read More
