1/4 cup (½ stick) butter or margarine
1 package (10 ½ ounce) mini-marshmallows
1 package (11 ounce) Post Fruity Pebbles or Cocoa Pebbles Cereal
1 container (16 ounce) ready to spread vanilla frosting
Set of star cookie cutters OR if making the multi-layered birthday package alternative, you can just cut squares out of different sizes and then stack them on top of each other.
- Spray 13x9 inch pan with cooking spray.
- Melt butter over low heat in large saucepan. Add marshmallows, stirring until completely melted. Add cereal and mix to coat well.
- Press mixture firmly and evenly into prepared pan. Cool 1 hour in cool dry space.
- Using cookie cutters (star cutouts), carefully cut 2 of each size for a total of 10.
Spread ½ of frosting on tray to resemble snow. Use remaining frosting to attach stars, stacking largest to smallest and rotating the points to make a tree. Decorate as desired.
