Simple Vanilla Muffins dipped in melted white chocolate and coated with crunchy Fruity Pebbles. A fun St. Patrick’s Day breakfast or anytime snack!
I haven’t really had a chance to say this yet, but Happy March!!! It completely snuck up on me this year….and somewhere, in the midst of Samoa recipes and cheesecake parfaits, I completely lost track of the fact that St. Patrick’s Day is just 2 weeks away! I finally posted my first recipe yesterday (did you catch my Lucky Charms Milkshakes?) and I plan to share a few more ideas with you this week. Whew – just in time!
Part of the problem is there are just so many holidays! Which, I must say, I did NOT feel as a kid. Don’t you remember waiting for the next holiday for what felt like an eternity? I sure do. And now I feel like I can just barely catch my breath between them! Every time I turn around there are new decorations to put up, new t-shirts to sport, new presents to buy, new candy to eat, new treats to make…….(not that I’m complaining)!
And you know who else isn’t complaining? Yep – you guessed it. My kids! What kid wouldn’t love sweetness covered in more sweetness and sprinkled with Fruity Pebbles? Especially when you call them muffins (that means they’re acceptable for breakfast, right?)! You better believe it! These Fruity Pebbles Muffins start with the Vanilla Muffin recipe I grew up with and adored. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Truth be told, these cupcakes will quickly become history at your house, too. They’re just too good to keep around….especially once the kids get their hands on them! The good news is they couldn’t be easier….so you have plenty of time to make them for St. Patrick’s Day……and making more is always an option! Whew!
