Would you like a cavity with that?

One of my favorite ways to make rice krispy treats is to use Cocoa Pebbles cereal instead. The other day after making some, Frugaldad suggested "Fruity Pebbles with some of those colored marshmallows mixed in right at the end so they don't melt." I happened to be going to the store the next day and Fruity Pebbles were on sale so a few nights later (when the cocoa version was gone) I made up a batch of what have been affectionately dubbed "Atomic Sugar Bombs."

These things are so disgustingly sweet they didn't even tempt me. Frugaldad thought they were great and the kids liked them too. Don't get me wrong, I love a good piece of chewy, fruity candy, but these things were just too much.
