Did you love Cocoa Pebbles and Fruity Pebbles as a kid as much as we did? Then you’ll be psyched to know Post Foods recently released their Limited Edition Pebbles Sugar Cookie cereal, a delicious breakfast treat with a holiday twist.
Since eating sugary goods early morning now has us napping at noon, we’re going use this cereal for dessert instead. So take inspiration from Christina Tosi’s irresistible nostalgic treats at MomoFuku Milk Bar and use the new box to create a holiday treat that has surprise texture and flavors inspired by our childhood.
Pebbles Holiday Cake Pops
Prep Time: 2 hours
Total Time: At least 6 hours or overnight
Serves: 48 cake pops
1 box (15.25) ounces white cake mix
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil
3 cups Pebbles Sugar Cookie cereal, divided use
1 cup prepared vanilla frosting
2 packages (16 ounces each) vanilla flavored white candy coating
Prepare cake mix according to package directions using 1 cup water, 1/3 cup oil and 3 eggs. Bake in a 9-by-13-inch pan and allow to cool completely.
One the cake is completely cooled, crumble the cake into a large bowl. Add 1-1/2 cups of the cereal and frosting. Mix until thoroughly combined.
Roll into 1-1/2 inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours or overnight.
In a medium bowl, lightly crush the remaining 1-1/2 cups of cereal using your hands or the back of a wooden spoon. Set aside.
In a deep microwave safe bowl melt the candy coating in the microwave according to package directions.
Remove a few cake balls out of the refrigerator at a time. Dip about 1/2 inch of a lollipop stick into the melted candy coating and then insert halfway into a cake ball. Quickly dip the cake ball into the candy coating until it is completely coated. Allow excess coating to drip off the cake ball. Roll the cake ball in the lightly crushed cereal, coating the entire ball.
Gently lay the cake pop on a sheet covered in non-stick foil, or insert the completed cake pops into a Styrofoam block if you prefer to store and display them upright. Repeat with the remaining cake balls.
