  • 9 tablespoons butter (divided into thirds)
  • 3 (10-ounce) bags of marshmallows
  • 6 cups Fruity Pebbles cereal
  • 6 cups Cocoa Pebbles cereal
  • 6 cups Lucky Charms cereal
  • 1 pint bubblegum ice cream
  • 1 pint strawberry ice cream
  • 1 pint chocolate chip mint ice cream
  • Optional: colored sprinkles

Steps to Make It

  1. Grease a medium sheet pan.

  2. In a large saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Once completely melted, add one bag marshmallows and stir until completely melted and smooth. Remove from heat and quickly stir in Fruity Pebbles until well coated.

  3. Using wax paper or a spatula, press mixture into sheet pan until about 1/2 inch thick. Let cool at least 20 minutes.

  4. Repeat steps one through three with remaining butter and marshmallows for both the Cocoa Pebbles and the Lucky Charms.

  5. Using a cookie or biscuit cutter, punch out different sized circles. Place a big scoop of bubblegum ice cream in between two Fruity Pebble circles and press down. Use a big scoop of strawberry ice cream for Cocoa Pebbles circles and mint chocolate chip ice cream with Lucky Charms circles. Repeat to make 2 to 3 more sandwiches for each cereal.

  6. Roll outside edge in sprinkles, if using.

  7. Freeze until ready to serve.
